Finallllly, the forever work day ended and I headed to the drs office; traffic on the outer loop of the Beltway was backed up and I just knew I was going to be late for my appointment. However, once I made it off the Beltway and onto I-66 it was smooth sailing. As I was flying down, ooops, I mean driving down the freeway I started thinking about my appointment and how I shouldn't have went to the "ladie's room" before I left work. Fortunally by the time I got to Dr H's office I had to go pee, because you know if you are going in for a uti, you will have to pee in a cup. I love Dr. H, she never sugar coats or dresses up what she wants to say, she walks into the exam room and declares..."you win the prize, your pee lit up like a Christmas tree, even the nurse was impressed". I"m so glad I could impress her, I'm sure she's seen a lot of crazy things in her field of work and a litmus strip lighting up like a Christmas tree from pee, well, I'm sure that's something to talk about around the dinner table. Hmmmm....I wonder if it would work on my Christmas tree.
So, I have a really bad bladder infection, and a sinus infection; I really shouldn't let these things go so long. Btw, the side pain was related to the uti. Dr H also said I have some fluid in my right lung....huh? She asked me if I had been coughing a lot and I said "no, not at all". Have you had a fever? "no, I have to be dying to have a fever" ( I just never get them). Have you had any chills? " yes, I've had lots of those" (just thought it was because I was cold). So, she gave me some heavy duty meds, told me to rest ( you gotta be kidding) and gave me paper work for some blood work ( whaaaaa!!! I don't want no shots!) and made me set up another appt with her for a longer visit....hmmmm. what's going on? I was a good girl and made the appointment.
After all this, I am glad I have today off, I need to recover.
Til next time,
