Ain't nothin' like a good ole' bladder infection to give you some extra rest!

Tuesdays are a fairly busy day for me, and yesterday was going to be a wee bit busier than usual with the addition of a couple rehearsals with people I'm playing the piano for in various things.

I start out by dropping both Bria and Chloe off at their respective schools and then going grocery shopping. I'm sure you all understand why it's absolutely necessary for me to go with as few children tagging along as possible, but Sophie hasn't been feeling very well, so even going with just her was not much fun. Basically, she screamed the entire time.

When I got home from the store I realized I was probably starting a urinary tract infection. I got my groceries put away and started chugging the water, hoping to nip it in the bud without having to see the Doc, since I had absolutely no time to squeeze in an appointment. Then I ran to get Chloe from preschool and came home to get a few chores done. All the while drinking as much water as I could, but not feeling much relief.

My sister-in-law came over at noon to practice her song, and I still felt okay, but by the time she was getting ready to leave I was in some serious pain and starting to feel shaky. Joel came home for lunch and convinced me I needed to see a doctor, so I called the office and made an appointment. I had to cancel all of my voice lessons in order to go, which I absolutely hate doing. But most of them were willing to reschedule for Thursday, so no harm done I suppose.

The doctor confirmed that I indeed had a bladder infection, said I must be miserable by what he found in my urine sample, and prescribed me an antibiotic. I went immediately to fill it, called Joel to ask him to take the girls to their violin lesson so I could go to bed and then went home and did just that.

I cancelled my other rehearsal and stayed in bed the rest of the day/night. So, basically, what was to be a super stressful day became somewhat restful, even though I was chilling and feverish and basically feeling like I was going to die for a few hours.

Not to worry though, this morning I feel like a new woman. Still a bit painful and such, but I can handle it. Thank goodness for antibiotics!!

Off to conquer Wednesday!


  1. So glad you are feeling better dear!! YAY!!

  2. Make sure you keep drinking a lot, sometimes these little guys can be hard to get rid of.

  3. Ohhhh - those always hit at the most "convenient" times, don't they! At least the meds are kicking in pretty quickly. Glad you were able to get some rest even if that makes the next few days extra busy.

    Get feeling better soon! Wish I lived closer - I'd bring you some soup and bread!

  4. It seems like sickness strikes at the worst times, but probably the times you need to relax the most. Glad you are feeling better today though :)

  5. Girl! I am SO thinking of you. I'm glad your feeling a wee (no pun intended) bit better today. You'll be good as new in no time!

  6. Ugh! I had a bladder infection shortly after Chris and I got married and kidney stones when I was pregnant with Elodie so I can totally understand what you went through! I was told cranberry juice works great too! Glad you got some rest and yes those little anitbiotics are wonderfully!

  7. Glad you're feeling better. How nice that you're hubby was able to take over so you could rest! I have to be on my death bed before that happens!
