Doctor Day Update

I sort of knew last night how this was going to go-down, that's why I wasn't quite as nervous this morning. For the last few weeks my kidneys have been a little achy on and off, but nothing consistent or enough to worry about. Then last night I started feeling pretty icky, fast, by this morning I was completely miserable, chills, aches, clammy...yucky. So it was no big surprise when the doctor came in and said "Um, you have a really, really, bad infection." We guessed that the infection has been smoldering for a few weeks, that's why my body was reacting the way it was. I got a big ole shot in the hip and then came home and parked on the couch. I have pictures from Easter that I want to show you (I STILL haven't posted Easter dresses people!) but they will have to wait until tomorrow or maybe the next day. I think the medicine is making me feel even worse than I did this morning. The good news is that we think the swelling will stop now! And kidney infections can be fixed!


Now I will leave you with this little Easter dress hint until I can peel myself off of this couch long enough to get the pictures off of the camera.

OOoo, is that Liberty of London fabric? If not it's got the same look and I ♥ it!

Oh my. I sure hope that shot does it's job and that you feel better soon. And I can't wait to see pictures....(not of the swelling) :-)

Would you believe I had that Liberty of London scarf in the buggy at the local Target, but put it back as we were checking out. I really love how soft the fabric is and that little tassel trim - Yum. I wanted it for a cool spring night shawl. It's a great size. Just couldn't justify buying it when I didn't think I would wear it. Wish I had bought it.
Hope you're feeling much better soon.
