No George Clooneys at my ER

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) !!
