Hi Bible,

Do you have any other symptoms? I had a really bad cold recently and had a 101 fever for two days. But I also had nasal congestion so I new it was just a cold. What else do you have besides a fever? Going to the ER can't hurt, of course. Please remember that He is right beside you and will walk with you during this trial!

I have nothing else going on- No sign of a cold or anything. I just got out of the hospital March 24 with an obstruction.

I remember coming off of several months of Levaquin. I felt strange and remember having a little fever. I wonder if my body was just adjusting or something? Like my body now had to handle all the germs it normally did before Levaquin, but the Levaquin had been handling for several months. Just a theory of course based on nothing but fluff.

If you feel ill, you might want to call your doc or go to the ER. You aren't that far from surgery and certainly dod't want to go backwards!! Hope you feel better soon!!! Praying for you! Let us know!

I'm doing a lot better---Thank you for your prayers If you don't mind just continue praying. I went to Urgent care and the Doc was great and sweet- Told him my situation and tested my urine. There is infection and blood in it. However, he wants me to come back tomorrow with urine and if it has continued- He is sending me to the ER. I really believe with prayer- I'm going to be alright!!!
Thank you all for your feedback thoughts and prayers!!!!!!!!

I read where someone said that I wasn't that far from surgery. I don't want that - I really pray that the meds will work!!
