No George Clooneys at my ER

Monday, June 16, 2008

I had varying titles for this blog:

No Father's Day for Poor DH,
Danger Dog Curse Strikes Again, and even
Cranberry Juice Doesn't Work.

It seems that each time a new SP 5% challenge starts (I am a proud Danger Dog), I wind up at my local hospital. This weekend it was for a kidney infection, very special. I have no way to describe it other than it felt like the back labor I experienced with dd1. The Avmed RN I called actually said: "Are you sure you are not pregnant." Yeah, I'm sure !!

Friday a.m. I began experiencing what I thought was a UTI and started pumping the cranberry juice, not wanting to have to go on antibiotics again. Peed a whole bunch on Saturday and by late night starting having the abdominal back pains. Woke up dh at 1:30 a.m. to drive me to the ER and then paced the hallways until 4:30 a.m. when they finally took me in. Saturday night is definitely not the best time to visit the ER. Dh had to go home to be with dds, so I was by myself (nothing he could have done) crying and pacing trying to be comfortable, sitting was more painful. There were people who were in the ER when I arrived, that were just being seen Sunday when I was finally sent home. After running all the tests they gave me a course of IV antibiotics at the hospital and sent me home to bed. Where I stayed, leaving poor dh alone doing laundry and managing the kids for Father's Day. He is a peach though and was wonderful about it.

So I may be limping the walk a bit this week but alls well that ends well. I hope your weekends were a little less exciting (and painful) !!

    Oh my! Fortunately, my Sunday was WAY less eventful. I'm a little late reading this because of my trip, but I'm glad to hear you are on the road to recovery.

    YIKES! Well, my weekend was DEFINITLY less painful, albiet a little 'blurry' as we went out and I really went overboard on drinking DH's drink!!! UH OH
    Oh, and you've got to really read the label on the cranberry juice - make sure it is 100% cranberry JUICE not COCKTAIL (a LOT of water added in plus sugar and other crud!) if it's too tart you can always add some 100% apple juice.
    And, can I add .... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATER!!!!!!!

    Hi Deb,
    I was wondering how you were doing! Actually I was more concerned about your contact lens - I had no idea all this was going on. Sorry you had such a horrible time! I hope you are feeling much better now...

    Hoooooly *(R#&%(~, Deb!!!!

    And there I thought I'd had a "bad" weekend because I totally binged. :) Thanks for helping me get things back in perspective - that kind of pain has to be awful!

    Hope you feel better soon! Congratulations on at least "limping" the walk, rather than lying down for a snooze like I did! :)

    Hugs,
    Maya
