Update on happenings at our house

Friday, September 06, 2013

I was finally able to get an antibiotic for my kidney infection. WHAT A TRAIN WRECK trying to get that accomplished. But glad I have been able to start them. It amazed me when those working in the doctors' office don't listen to the patients or pass the messages along. Just glad it is all sorted out. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! The doctor was impressed that I have lost twelve pounds since I was there last month.
I sure don't need more issues to deal with with my kidneys.
My dear grandson and his new bride are in North Carolina and have a beautiful home on base. I am so happy for them.
Praying for safe travels for my dear sister and brother in law as they travel to the beach to spend a week with their families.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy whatever life brings your way!!! Be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and give them a great big hug!!! We are never promised tomorrow and need to take advantage of every day!!!
Blessings and hugs,

Continuing prayers for Shannon
Spark Friends!!!
Enough "bad" things to keep life interesting
Heat, air conditioning and electricity for our home
A day of beautiful sunshine...great for being out walking
Plenty of healthy food
Tests that provide the answers we need
Thankful for each new day that I am given!!!
Unexpected twists and turns in our lives
God is in the "miracle" business!!!
Thank you, Lord, for your guidance and patience with me!
Too many positives and blessings to list them all here....Praise the Lord!!

NOTE: Thank you for reading my blogs and your continued support for me!!! You are each very special in your own way and I definitely appreciate all you do!!! I just want to say

    Helen, I think medical staff should have to take a workshop in listening to patients, especially if they are phoning. When I first started taking my bp med, I called to request a refill. The assistant asked me for my dosage. What!!!?!! I told her I didn't have it and it didn't seem safe to ask a patient for the dosage, especially since they would have the info in my chart. She began to explain what dosage meant. Yikes!!!! Needless to say, I told my doctor when I next visited. She was appalled. To rely on patients to tell you what the dose is...frightening. Needless to say, that young woman didn't last long.

Glad you are on the antibiotic and hopefully well on your way to recovery.

Hugs & blessings.

    I'm glad you are getting treatment for the infection.

Doctor's offices are crazy. Things get lost in the shuffle. The nurses do usually pass the messages along but the doctor is so busy that he is getting messages from multiple sources every hour all day long and can't keep up with them all.

Congratulations on the weight loss!!

    So glad that you were able to get the antibiotics. It is so aggravating when they medical people do not listen. My dear DH had to go to Urgent Care twice in 3 days-high fever. He got a dose of IV antibiotics both times so doing much better now. Tried to tell us it wasn't a UTI!
