I Spoke too Soon

Well, i thought that the next time i went to the hospital i would be having the baby. I spoke too soon. Apparently the kidney infection i had last time either came back, or a new infection came into the mix. It wasn't as bad this time and i figured i just needed antibiotics and could avoid the hospital, my doctor had a different plan in mind. I was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon and released on Thursday at 11:30am. Let's take a gander at the scoreboard: Kara- 0 Kidneys- 2. I seem to not be winning this battle...
(I do not actually support the Kidney foundation of canada, this was the only picture of a kidney that seemed to not have pictures of blood vessels attached.)

Thankfully my doctor released me this morning so that i can try to pack and get ready for our road trip to utah (which we leave for tonight). I have my heavy duty anitbiotics in tow, about 1,000 ounces of cranberry juice to drink (gotta love visiting teachers!), and the beautiful (note the sarcasm) barren abyss of the northern Nevada landscape to help me recover. I'm going to show these kidneys who is boss!

Seriously, you have the worst luck ever. I am so sorry that you were in the hospital AGAIN! What the heck?!?! I hope your feeling better and that it really was your last time in the hospital till the baby comes!

I had no idea you were in the hospital AGAIN! I am so sorry Kara. I am glad you are feeling better. Good luck on your way to UT, and have a great long weekend. Feel better!

Oh Kara....that sucks! You'll have to run to Costco and get the Cranberry supplement pills. I was downing those last time I had a kidney stone, but I hear they are fab for kidney infections! Plus it keeps you from having to down gallons of cranberry juice! Have a safe trip.

holy grief! do you have the luck of all bad luck?! I guess this will make the big delivery day that much greater and happier- you'll be there for a joyous reason rather than all these other ones you've experienced. Enjoy those horse pills, cranberry juice, and barren abyss!
