Back Home

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

I have been in hospital 5 days. Just couldn't shake whatever was wrong, gave up and went to the dr. I was dehydrated (how I couldn't figure out; 8 glasses of water a day), low potassium, low blood pressure, high blood sugar. On Wed. a.m. we started out on an out patient basis, with IV antibiotics and fluids, by p.m. I was admitted. Next day did a Cat Scan, have LOTS of infection around kidneys. Was not a fun 5 days. See a urologist on Wed., but it is absolutely wonderful to be home. Only to you friends will I tell this: I love my husband but do men truly not see things lying around. Last week's newspaper, blankets from when I was so cold, dishes in the sink. It always amazes me, how they can walk by something many times and not pick it up. Don't get me wrong he was good to help when I felt so bad but if we put it away as we used it things wouldn't be quite so cluttered. Thanks for listening, hopefully will keep me from saying something ugly to him. God's blessing to you all!!

    I'm so glad that you're home and hope you're soon feeling better. I have a chronic kidney disease and know how painful it can be. Getting a kidney infection of any sort just wears you out!
    Rest and relax; give yourself time to heal. It's hard to do, but try to overlook the clutter from daily life that always builds up. It's not the important thing right now - you are!
    The clutter can wait - your health can't.
    I'm sending healing thoughts your way,

    Oh, MY! I know JUST how you are feeling! In 1992, on December 17th, I ended up in the Navy hospital for just the same thing! I was there for five days, also!!! I'd rather go into labor again than experience that! Oh, I'm so glad you're home and feeling better! emoticon

    I don't think guys really think about that stuff... unless they trip over it, it's really not there! emoticon

    You take care! Love, Your friend, Lori

    Oh that is so like my house he is good about things like cooking while I'm sick and taking care of me if I need it but to pick up things or do a dish forget it he is great in so many ways but definitely not a housekeeper. Hope you are feeling better and just let things slide until you are ready. Good Luck.

    Yay to being back home but :( to feeling lousy. I wish you good thoughts and healing. I am not married but I hear how husbands seem to not notice dirty dishes or things laying around. Almost a normal daily conversation at my work :) Get well soon!!
