E.R., Ipods and Cranberry Juice

Well, I was right on one of my predictions. Saturday night found us in the local emergency room. Two hours and one scan later, it was confirmed that I had a kidney infection. It’s probably one of the most uncomfortable things I’ve never experienced. I spent yesterday relaxing on the couch, drinking glass after glass of Cranberry juice, and watching the mini series and first season of “The Starter Wife” on my Ipod. I tried to help Joe clean the house, but he wouldn’t let me.

I’m feeling better today. The pain in my stomach is gone, which is a good thing. Last night, Joe and I were talking about the people we saw in the e.r. waiting room. I’m always amazed at the number of rednecks there. I know it’s mainly because a lot of them don’t have insurance so they go to the e.r. rather than to a pcp, but it still always interests me. This time, we saw a man wearing leather pants with fringe and a billowy shirt with a leather pouch around his shoulder. Wow.

    Sorry you’ve got a kidney infection & hope it gets better very soon. One of my sisters has had a few kidney infections & she said it’s the worst thing she’s ever experienced. Get some rest & feel better 🙂

    So sorry you had to go to the ER! I’ve had a kidney infection before as well, so I totally hear you on it being uncomfortable. At least it’s not mono, right? While the kidney infection is worse for the moment, the mono would have been worse in the long run.
