Sick as a Dog
There are some things you don't know. I am officially on vacation for the month of July as of 3 pm today. Something else you don't know is that I have been pretty darn ill with a severe kidney infection since last Friday. I suffered all weekend in major ways. If I had it to do again, I would have ordered the ambulance. But, I'm stubborn. I try to be tough. And I can't make a decision to save my life (clearly). Finally, after a diagnosis Monday AFTERNOON, I was given a shot, a prescription for a strong antibiotic and something for nausea.
Day 5: I am experiencing less pain Still not eating much. Trying to rehydrate. I am still laying down too much. No strength.
I won't bore you with any more details. Although, suffering is good writing material, it changes your brain somehow maybe your soul. I need to think on that. It's not like I haven't experienced pain; I gave birth twice -naturally. This experience has been...well...mind changing.
I also thought I was going to get a puppy, but it looks like that fell through. So that's disappointing. I'm so sick, though, it doesn't really matter.
I am taking some time away from the Internet. I may post some, I don't know. I DO know I want to write until my fingers are exhausted. That will make me happy.
This is what I will do in July, mostly: Write, think and write some more.
