My parents are going to visit their long time friend this morning. He’s dying. He hasn’t got long to live.
He’s been asking to see them. He’s got a tumour on his lung. Poor guy. I feel for him.
I don’t envy them having to visit him, I think it will be hard, visiting someone whose dying isn’t going to be easy.
What do you say? How do you handle it? I don’t think I could do it.
I do think though that its good they will go, before he passes on. It will be good for them to be able to say a goodbye. This may be the last time they see him.
I had a long hot soak in a bubble bath. It was bliss. I’ve decided not to go volunteering tomorrow. I think I need to try to relax as much as possible. I do have to go to college on wednesday, as its our second last class before the summer break, and we have work to hand up so I do need to go in. Thats ok though I dont mind. I am also going to go to slimming world this week. I dont want to miss that. Other than that though I am not going to do anything else this week. If I feel better by Friday I’ll go volunteering then, but if I dont I wont. I’m still at my parents but will be going back home to my own house tomorrow. I hope someone is going to call me from the pest control place tomorrow so that I can hopefully get rid of my wasp issue. The weathers picking up now and if I dont do something to get rid of them soon things could get a lot worse. I dont want that. If I hear nothing by wednesday I’ll give them another call. Mom is still out with my sister. They are at a local park, a nature park, where there are a lot of trails. My sister took her two pugs, and if I’d have gone I would have taken nitro with me too. I am glad I didnt go. There will be plenty of time for things like that when I feel better.
I slept well last night. I woke up feeling a little better today. The pain is still there but it has lessened. I took my morning antibiotic, and will take my afternoon one around 4 PM. I am not doing much today, mom and my sis went to a local nature park, I decided that I needed to stay home, to get well. I’ve been reading, and enjoying that. My tummy still hurts a little. The pain was quite bad, and its taking a while for it to go away completely. I don’t have a fever though which is good. I never had one which I am very glad about. I’m still taking pain relief but my urine has stopped burning, and overall I feel a lot better. I think the worst is over now.
I’m shutting down for tonight. I am going to go to bed and read. I need to take another antibiotic at midnight, so I’ll stay up for a while but I will go lay down. Good night everyone, talk to you all tomorrow!
It was eventful. The first thing that I found out was, I could have gone there early today, I didnt need to wait until this evening to go. But oh well. I went, and was introduced to an elderly doctor, who was a little bit dozey lol. He didnt realise I was blind, although how you couldnt have known that I will never know. Anyone who looks at me would know I am blind just by looking at me. He kept talking to my mom instead of talking to me. He kept acting as if I wasnt even in the room, asking mom questions about me and my symptoms. He told me to get up on the couch so he could examine me. He examined me and he said my stomach area felt very tender. He asked me to do a urine sample, and he tested it. There was white cells in it, and he said they were quite high, and that was a sure sign of an infection. He gave me an antibiotic which I am to take 3 times a day for 7 days. He also gave me some painkillers for relief from the pain. When we came out we had a long walk to get to the pharmacy. I was feeling very weak, so I am not sure how I managed to walk there. I did it though and we got my meds. Then we got a taxi back to moms. I’ve already taken my first dose of the antibiotic and two pain killers. I hope they work quickly. Hopefully by tomorrow they will have kicked in and I’ll be feeling a little better. I’m planning on just relaxing and taking things easy tomorrow. I’m glad I caught this early on. Kidney infections are so nasty. Its a horrible thing to go through. Hopefully I’ll be on the mend now once the antibiotic gets into my system.
I decided I will go to the doctor later on today. I’m not getting any better. In fact I am getting worse.
I feel awful. I will go to the emergency out of hours doctor.
I have mislaid my medical card, but I hope they’ll still see me anyway. I will just have to explain to them on the phone that I mislaid the card. I think I am on their system anyway from the last time I went there.
I hope the doctor will give me an antibiotic or something. I think I need one.
I think its the only way I am going to get rid of this infection. Thats if it is a kidney infection. We’ll see I guess what he says when I see him.
Prayers and good thoughts would be very appreciated.
I think I know what is up with me. I couldnt put my finger on why my stomach was so sore. But now I think I know why
I think I have a kidney infection. The pain I am feeling is similar to the pain I had a few months ago when I had a bad kidney infection. Its a sharp pain and very strong.
I went through another bad night of no sleep and lots of pain. If I press on my stomach the pain is quite bad.
I’ll give it a day or so and if there is no change I’ll go to a doctor. My mom thinks it could be from all the exercise I am doing, but the more I think on it the more I’m certain its a kidney infection.
Sigh. My dad told me to stay in bed, but there’s only so much staying in bed you can do.
