Day 43: Infection
Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Just when I think I have the reigns on my health, I come down with another raging kidney infection. This is the worst one ever, I think. I tried to hold off on the antibiotics, which are contraindicated for those who are or are trying to become pregnant. Not to mention that I finally was feeling like i got my flora in check. So much for that. Now I am essentially bombing them with high-dose, long-course antibiotics. It's very discouraging.
I leave for a trip back East in a week, and am worried about what this will do to my immune system. For right now I am just focused on trying to take it easy and get over the worst of the actual infection. Then I'll try to recover from the treatment...
