I had a crazy few days. My bladder decided to play games and in a matter of 24 hours I had a raging infection. I had a little discomfort one second and then used the bathroom to discover I had blood in a lot of my urine and the pain got worse.
I made a doctor appointment as soon as possible. I was certainly lucky to get an appointment in an hour. They asked me if I could wait until tomorrow but I could not because of the blood. In the meantime, I tried to appear normal as possible to Laura. I feel bad when she worries about me. I called my dad to see if he could spend some time with her as I did my appointment. He said yes!
I really did not want to take Laura because I knew I had to give a urine sample and knew what it looked like. She would have been upset. Besides that, I was taking an attendant who wasn't experienced in the medical aspect so it would be complicated.
To make a long story short, my sample had a lot of white and red blood cells. It looked like cranberry juice..very scary. They sent me home with heavy antibiotics. The pain that night was almost unbearable.
Please drink water!
