    I haven't heard what my UA/culture results were but I do feel better today. I'm still very weak though and was a real dummy yesterday because I went grocery shopping. By the time I was halfway through the store I was exhausted and sweaty/clammy from being worn out. I came home and Tom and the kids put all the groceries away while I went and passed out.

    At least I had the motivation to go get groceries, which is saying a whole LOT for me over the past several days. I couldn't get out of bed much less drive a car or push a grocery cart.

    I think I'm on the mend, but I'm still having enough bladder pain that I'm going to go get my B&O supps today. I think if I can get one of those in I'll feel a whole lot better. I feel like I should be bright orange by now with all the pyridium I took recently!

    BTW, my uro DID want to send me for a ct or mri, I don't remember which one, but I refused because I was just too sick to go sit in another waiting room. The deal was if things weren't getting better by the weekend I WAS going to be admitted. Thankfully it didn't come to that.

    Just going to take it easy again today. Thanks everyone!

      Hi, Sandy! I am so happy to see you back! We have all been pretty worried about you! I am glad you got in to see your Uro. I hope that the abx start working soon and you get to feeling better. Those stones can be so painful! I hope that you get better soon.

      Hugs,
      Amy

              Whew, happy to hear you are okay Sandy. I was worried about you too. I wont scold you for not going to the ER cause I refuse to go there. I havent ever thought about calling an ambulance. What do you tell them, that your pain is so bad you cant make it to the ER? Mine is really bad right now but I still wont go to the ER.
              I hope that you continue to mend. We miss ya around here. Hang in there.

                  All your kind messages have really moved me. Thank you!

                  Sarah, I called an ambulance once when I had pyleonephritis sooooooo bad that my pain was like a 15 on a scale of 1-10. I was by myself, nobody around to help me, everyone was at work, and I couldn't take it anymore. I was too sick, with 3 kids at home, and just told the EMT's that I couldn't take the pain anymore and I had to have some help to get to the hospital. It was all true...they rolled me straight into an exam room where I stayed til they admitted me.
