Back in the World of the Living

I would like to announce that I THINK I am finally over whatever it was that had me in it's grips for a couple of weeks. When last we met, I was getting over a UTI and was down with the flu. Finally, about 1:00 am Sunday morning, I woke up drenched. My fever had broken and has stayed that way ever since. I began to feel better immediately and am improving everyday. However, on Monday my doctor called and said that the urine test they had taken about 10 days previously showed a bacterial infection and he was putting me on a new antibiotic. OK!! So did I have the flu or was that just the nasty little bacteria bug at work. Anyway, the new antibiotics came with a 2 page warning about the side effects--the major one being the very good possibility of ruptured tendons. So--no playing tennis or golfing (which I don't do anyway) and not a lot of long distance walking. So any little ache or pain has me wondering now. Oh, and not a lot of exposure to the sun. (Oh come on, I live in Florida!) But, the upside is I FEEL GREAT! Finally.

So glad you are feeling better, whatever the real cause was!! It's never fun to feel that sick!

Yeah!! Just think how much better you will feel after the 2nd round of antibiotics. I know it is hard for you, but just take it easy, slow down and rest for a bit. Let your body heal:-)
