Slight set-back

New to this? Check out the First Post


It seems that I have developed a raging kidney infection overnight. It was rather painful this morning, and I was on the loo every five minutes so I rang the doctor and got an appointment this morning. He handed me a little bottle and off I trotted to the loo to provide him with a sample. He dipped some testing strip in the sample and then prescribed some antibiotics.

He was very impressed with my neck though - thought it looked great. So that is good :-) Just feeling a bit sorry for myself now - I even had an afternoon nap on the sofa. Still a couple of days on the tablets and I'm sure I'll be fine. I guess my immunity is still a bit low. Will have to hold up on the hoovering for a few days now and take it a bit easier. And stay close to a bathroom... :-0


  1. What a shame. You were probably doing too much, so just take it easy for a while. It must be frustrating, when you don't want to feel an invalid any longer.

  2. Oo, yes, kidney infections can sneak up and make you feel rather wiped out. I think everyone who is recuperating from cancer treatment deserves a medal for this stage as much as the treatment itself because those up hills and down dales continue for a while until things even out. But you're still heading in the right direction overall, Berni!

    Fascinating about poppywally. I have 3 brothers and sisters and we used to play cards and board games a lot. My hubby is Australian and he has his family's board game 'Squatter' which is like Monopoly only one builds a sheep farm rather than real estate so you get to buy cute plastic sheep ;) The cards like Chance and Community Chest either bring good weather and sheep sales etc or fire and pestilence! It is real boom and bust in the outback, I tell you. Our nieces always thought it was really cool because it was different.

    Take care.
