I'm OK, I'm OK
Such a worrisome week it was. The blood tests for TB came back positive, so I had to have a chest x-ray. The whole time I am worrying about infecting people, is it active/latent and HOW in the world did I pick this up? You are waiting for doctor to call with blood tests results, carrying the phone around with you all the time to NOT miss it, then waiting for the x-ray to be read. This time the doctor was faster and the same day I got results and made a follow-up appointment for this morning. The chest x-ray was clear and I have no symptoms, like the coughing or night sweats. So I was NOT active...have not been infecting everyone I came into contact with. THAT was a BIG relief. Just have to have a chest x-ray yearly to make sure things don't change or if I get any symptoms go to doctor right away. The x-ray also showed the pleurisy that was diagnosed by the hospital ER was gone... I have not had to have any pain meds for 4 days now.. good, good... no chest pain and the pain in the upper back/shoulders is also gone.. good, good.
BUT I got to thinking about that lower back pain while at the beach and made them take a urine sample and sure enough I have a bladder infection, yet again!!!! BUT that is easy to treat and get rid of, but would like to know why I keep getting those!!! Yes, I am and DO drink LOTS of water.....
This evening after taking the antibiotics I felt downright chipper!!!!
So, I am well on the road to recovery and this month is well behind me, not that I am wishing time or my life away, but I can think of much better ways for it to be spent!!!!
And let us hope that I can find anything else of more interest than this to blog about in the future!
Take Care All & God Bless... good health to you all!!!!
