They addressed new issues that had arisen early this morning, made me generally MUCH more comfortable, and now expect I will do much better between now and my next appointment on Monday morning. I'm thankful for the physical freedom to be up and out of bed a bit between now and Monday. Maybe I can sit on the living room floor to get some of my Christmas clutter cleared now??? Still not planning to leave the house this weekend.
One newer prayer concern is that I now have a UTI, in addition to the kidney stone. This totally surprised the ER doc yesterday morning as, thanks again to the strokes, I had no classic warning signs and still had great kidney function when I went to the ER two weeks prior. I'm back on antibiotics, but the last time I was catheterized (in the hospital, for the strokes) I developed a UTI and the infection went antibiotic resistant and took over 6 months to clear. I know I'm "borrowing trouble" already voicing this concern, but I really would rather not go down that path again!
I feel like all my post these days sound whiney. I really don't usually feel that way. In fact, the ER nurse just commented on my amazing attitude yesterday morning. It's just hard to be transparent about all the medical facts (my commitment with this blog) without making it sound like a pity party. I'm sorry.
