I finally know why I have been so sick these last two weeks. Yesterday, I felt like I was going to die so I went to the ER, despite not having health insurance. They must have thought it was pretty bad, because they wheeled me back pretty fast. Next followed blood and urine tests, a sonogram, and a CT scan of my abdomen. Within 2 hours, they had a culprit. I had a urinary tract infection and a blockage in one of the arteries leading into my left kidney. They set me up with an IV of antibiotics and sent a urine sample to a lab to determine what bacteria caused the infection in my kidney. My own research into the condition has shown me two possible causes, Staph or E.Coli bacteria. I won't know until my tests come back. So for now I am resting and taking my medicine. Its very hard to rest when I have so many responsibilities, but my girls have been great and Arwen even made dinner for herself and her sister. I love it that they are older now!
I hope everyone is doing good. Say your prayers of thanks tonight for health, happiness, and prosperity.
