Good Morning Ladies,
Well yesterday was very wet and wild, it was lot warmer though. Paul was shocked at how Sunday early morning the car temperature read -4° and Monday it was +12! So crazy, I was ready for it to be warmer though, I am suck of sitting and shivering, or getting out of bed to use toilet and then struggling to get warm again.
What a long frustrating day yesterday turned out to be!! I called the surgery at 8 25am, but didn't get through to speak to Receptionist until 9.10am after having to explain at great length my situation, I explained that I still didn't feel right (although I had started to think that I am just paranoid about the symptoms imagining I felt something when i went to the loo) Turns out I was still having symptoms, as although I gave in a sample first thing Monday morning, which was back on Wednesday indicating that Co-amoxiclav wasn't going to work for this infection, the surgery neglected to let me know, so I took a full 7 day course for nothing 😡 I did say that it was the same antibiotic that she prescribed me, she said that when she prescribed it it was effective and it had built up resistance that week! So results.... my scan showed that my kidneys and bladder are fine, I am emptying fine etc, which is good news, although I just want answers! So we are back to square ⬛️ 1 !! Going forward, today I start another 7 day Course of Nitrofurantoin, followed by a 3 month short course the day after I finish the full course. 😢😭 She has also made an appointment for me on 4th Jan to discuss Hormone replacement choices, as she is convinced that it is menopause that is causing the problems, particularly Estrogen. I'm not so sure but we'll see what's on offer. So I will be spending Christmas on Antibiotics, which isn't great and the Nitrofurantoin do make you feel rough. She did agree 100% that I take Keffir fermented yoghurt every day, to help replace my good bacteria and repair my Microbiome from the damage caused by 6 courses of antibiotics back to back !!
On a lighter note...Today's fantastic Christmas card was sent to from our Michele, such a lovely surprise. I love the Clean and Crisp design, the photo doesn't capture how much the trees sparkle with the glitter card behind them, it really catches the light on the mantelpiece! I absolutely love your design Michele, thank you so much my lovely XXX
I hope that you all have a terrific Tuesday ,
My love and hugs to all of you,
