I so wish …

I had some new painting bits to show you … but I got NOTHING! … SIGH.


So I mentioned my relative bliss with getting this second antibiotic Augmentin, dare I say the blotted word, in my last post? Well, Monday night after taking it with my meal as instructed at five pm., promptly and thereupon, mind you, I began having SEVERE abdominal cramping. Hmm, we thought, this is new. Hopefully it will go away. At eleven pm, I looked up side effects on the beloved internet and found out that not only are the abdominal cramps a reason to seek immediate medical attention, but so is the severe diarrhea, heretofore described as “body cleansing”. Ahem. That started some days before Monday. So, we thought, we can’t afford to go to the ER, I mean, we CAN, literally, but what a HEADACHE to go and wait and sit and etc., if I can stick it out through the night, we guess, and so … I do … argh … yow … I mean YOW … I think I kind of passed out sleep for an hour or something in there overnight out of sheer helplessness …

So of course we decide I should take no more of the Augmentin. Common sense on that. The unfunny thing is that on Monday during the day I felt the respiratory congestion coming back. I kid you not. Sigh.

I call the doctor next am first thing and they have an opening at eleven thirty, which seems like forever, AND IS, which I take. She can’t give me another antibiotic of course, nor anything for the severe pain, but calls for a chest x-ray and CT scan of the sinuses. Says to come back with a stool sample on Th/Friday if still with the severe diarrhea.

So many days it seems of hobbled over walking and moving slowly abdominal cramping at pain levels of 8-9 — and the aforementioned diarrhea. Pleasant TMI, I know. Then yesterday, HOLIDAY, mind you, I start bleeding in the urethra area. Been there, done that, so I know where it is coming from.

Jump to now. Suffice it to say, cystoscopy scheduled for Wednesday 9:30. We think the bleeding is in the urethra tube itself. ? Why ida know. Prolly not serious. Whatever. Just add it to the stack of my wierd ailments. At four today I am to present with aforementioned stool sample. Prolly be in the morning tho. TMI, pleasantries. I think as we get older all this will be enormously fascinating stuff among us. I’m getting to know all sorts of people in waiting rooms. Spanish is coming in very handy. In the waiting rooms. So is kindness and patience and the Kindle. I’m going to have to break out the Neruda and reading glasses before long tho, ’cause I’m almost out of Eudora Welty, Bless her.

So, lest I be accused of only bearing sad and morbid tidings, Rebekah’s Closet is now available online through Barnes and Noble. Go Look for her on the Nook! and in print online. This is because of the expanded distribution I signed up for a few weeks ago, if you remember me mentioning that. So. There is also an IPad/IPhone/Apple app for we Mac lovers, so be all over that as well. Kewl. It all balances out in the end. Yah.
