October Blues

DenaOctober 11, 2013

Sorry that it’s been pretty quiet around here this week. It’s not often that I get the blues in October, but the past week has been a little rough. It all started on Monday with a simple UTI that kept getting worse and worse and worse. Two less-than-fun doctor appointments and several inconclusive tests later, and I’m still none-the-wiser. I’m still not sure if it is a UTI turned bladder/kidney infection or kidney stones or something else altogether. Unfortunately the three different doctors that I’ve seen are just as clueless as me. The strangest part of it all is the that fact that I am generally okay all day but as night falls I start to deteriorate. Last night I was in so much pain that I was completely convinced I was about to pass a stone. It felt like labor! Then… nothing. I fell asleep and woke up feeling okay. Sigh…

Oh well! I am so grateful that I haven’t had to go to the hospital. As long as I get to stay home, I can deal with the pain. The silver lining to all of this is definitely the fact that Roman James has had a stellar week. He’s been eating & sleeping like a champ. Hopefully things will be better & brighter over the next couple of days health-wise, too.

Hope that you have a lovely weekend! xo

    How is your health?You could try healing meditations..As being a pediatrician i know some diseases like UTI,cough,fever specially infection varieties become worse at night.So take necessary steps like drinking more liquids,sponging,medication or even going to the doctor before its evening.Wish you happy healing!
