It all started with hubby's brother developing lung cancer at the tender age of 48. When he was transferred to hospice care we decided to take a trip to visit him. It was a wonderful visit with two other brothers surprising us being there. The four brothers joked and visited and it was a wonderful day. We were half-way home when we received the call on our cell phone. Patrick had taken a turn for the worse. We continued home and it sadly, became a death watch. Patrick passed away in the small hours of Wednesday morning and the service would be the following Saturday.
Not to be outdone - while visiting Patrick I picked up some bacteria that caused a bad case of the flu and went straight to my bladder and then on to my kidneys. By the time we arrived on my sister's door step Friday I was severley dehydrated and pretty sick. While hubby attended the funeral I was at a local doctor's office. My sister was correct - severe dehydration, kidney infection and after blood samples I was put on antibiotics.
Nope - I don't do things in half measures! The bacteria I picked up was not known for going to the kidneys but to heart valves! Wonderful...lovely news. So, after two weeks of trying different antibiotics I am finally responding...though still really weak and tire easily. Now I have to wait for the ultrasounds on my kidneys and my heart to see if there is any damage...
I have looked at a couple of books - but still no strength to do much else. I have wedding invitations that need to get made so, hopefully, I will feel better soon.
Hope everyone else is having better days than I am.....I refuse to give up. I will be back card making soon.
