It has been a while since I have written in my journal here. I have been ill with an urinary tract infection. How I learned I had one was Thursday night I had gotten a temperature of 102.5 and I could not go to the bathroom very well, and that burning sensation was there – OUCH! I had learned of the results on Friday, along with my blood work for the month of May regarding my kidney. Yesterday afternoon sometime my kidney transplant coordinator called me regarding my urine culture from the same test on Friday that was definitely something there causing an infection. I had my blood work done again because my creatine was 1/10 of a point higher than the doctors would like my creatine to be at. Yesterday the creatine went back to the normal pointage my body is used to. WHEW My health at this time is fine, thankfully, and my urinary tract infection is getting out of my system. No more burning sensation and frequent bathroom visits. The only frequent visitt to the bathroom is because I am keeping myself hydrated with water and juices.
