I haven't felt well for quite a while, but not bad enough to actually go to the doctor. Wednesday night/Thursday morning I fell again, and knew there was something really wrong. I was supposed to work Thursday, so I'm cancelling the job and emailing everybody at 4 am, because there's no way I'll be able to work. My entire left side was hurting, from my bellybutton to my spine, and I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep. When I took my temp and it was 102, it was time to go to Urgent Care. I ended up with a shot of Toradol and another of some antibiotic that felt like the nurse was using liquid fire. Never did get the name of that one. Filled the prescription for Cipro, went home. Friday is a blur. Hubby called Urgent Care last night and the doctor said I should be feeling better by now, but if not, the best time to go to the ER was between 3 - 5 am. I don't want to go to the ER. My back still hurts, I'm still hot or cold (subject to change without notice) and sweating, but I took a shower today! It felt so good! Hadn't had one since Wednesday morning. Also hadn't eaten since Wednesday night, after we went to see the Extreme Makeover house. I had Cheerios and bananas. I'm confused, though, about how I could end up with a kidney infection with no signs of a bladder infection. I know the signs of a bladder infection. Aren't they all tied together in there? In my efforts to avoid the ER, I'll be calling my doctor first thing Monday, and hoping she didn't take the day off for MLK Day.
