kidney infection

Joe and I spent several hours in the emergency room tonight. I have a kidney infection, from a UTI that I didn’t realize I had. I spent the past two days in pain and throwing up before realizing in the evening that the symptoms involved my kidneys. Doctor who treated me said I should stay off work all the week.

I also have to go to my regular doctor this week for a test for diabetes because my blood sugar was up. As you may know, I’m already hypoglycemic and my dad has diabetes, so I’m high risk. Yeah. Fun. When I was younger, in a screwed up kid’s way I wanted diabetes like Stacey in the Baby-Sitters Club since she was one of my favorites. But I don’t really want diabetes.

  • yikes, emergency room vists are scary. I’m glad you’re okay. UTIs can be so vicious. *hugs*

    I wonder how many kids thought Stacey’s diabetes was cool. I did for a while too.

  • Yikes, that sucks! I hope you feel better soon though!

    And i’ll be emailing you back soon :).

  • aww.. *hugs* Hope you get to feeling better soon=( I dont think the ER, its just too rushed and scary for me..

    ahhh.. the Baby Sitters Club.. I liked Stacey, but my favorite was Claudia and Kristi.. *thinks of her younger years* .. I wonder if they stopped making those books.. lol (seeing as when I was reading them, they had like 200+)

  • That’s terrible! I hope you feel better soon. I get UTI’s often, they’re the worst.

  • Ugh, that’s awful. I hope you feel better soon.
