Hi everyone,
sorry I've been away for so long. Hope your all doing okay.
I've just got home from the hospital this week. I've had a kidney infection and something called urosepsis. Been really quite ill with it for weeks. My blood sugar started to get affected as I was vomiting so much and unable to eat. Had to go on an insulin infusion via the IV and then have IV antiiotics and a drip to keep me hydrated. Feeling a little better today so thought I'd post while I could. I've just finished the antiiotic course and had to hand in a sample at my docs today. They are going to ring me if the infection hasn't cleared. Anyway, will speak more later. x x

Hi lion, sorry you were so sick but glad you are on the mend. I've been having problems not being able to urinate and now my sugar and cortisol and other stuff seems to be getting elevated. No one knows why. It's awful because I'm getting sick. Its probably only a micro bit of what you've been going through, but I feel for you and am glad they figured it out and are fixing it.
Love, Marji

Hi, thanks to you all for your kind words.
Well, I got a call from my GP's office today. This is unbelievable. I handed in my sample last Friday for testing to ensure the antibiotics had worked and the infection was gone. I got a call today to say my sample had been "delayed" in getting to the lab and could I drop in another one! Delayed my backside. It's took them a week to ring me and let me know this, and in the meantime my Kidneys could be getting more damaged. And to "drop another one in" is a 30mile round trip. Not good when I'm still not right, have a bad cold and my daughter had terrible flu! Are all surgeries this incompetent, or just mine????

Hi, Lion. I'm SO sorry you've had more dumped on you to deal with. Unfortunately, these days lots of places are that incompetent! I think it's an overload problem. Too many people in need of help and then the people that are providing the help, either don't care or are rushed so they half do to get done. Just try to get them another sample and we'll have to pray that the infection is gone and it was all needless worry. You take care and I hope that you and your daughter are feeling better.
