Why don

I’m not much of a complainer when it comes to aches and pains, though I have to tell you I’ve been progressively feeling worse for the last three days. I thought I pulled a muscle in my back.

Today I spent half the day, literally, in the hospital. As it turns out, something is wrong with my kidneys. Now I think they have ran every possible test that there is…Blood work, CT scan…you name it they did it….They know that I don’t have kidney stones, but they can’t figure out a few other things….so they wanted to keep me in the hospital for IV…fluids, pain killers etc…I didn’t want to. So they let me go home with some pain killers and a list of symptoms that if I should get I have to go back in right away.

My doctor said they have a few more cultures, test etc that they need to run….but…why don’t doctors just say….We have no idea what’s wrong with you. I could handle that…them not knowing but trying to find out….There isn’t’ anything wrong with not knowing if you at least are trying to figure it out … right? So why don’t they just come out and say that? All she kept saying was what WASN’T wrong with me…well that’s great and all….but what IS wrong with me then?

…the pain killers are starting to work I think…though I just feel tired the pain didn’t go away. Funny spot for your kidneys to be in btw….stupid me for thinking I pulled a muscle.

So…….I’m home for a few days….that surely will lead to boredom….so many things to do at work…may have to miss my lecture tonight…I don’t think I could concentrate that long….

I’ve got today covered with someone picking up the boys from school…I’m not sure what I’ll do tomorrow… I guess I really shouldn’t worry about my lil men. I’m sure my mom will help….she’s awesome like that….

Wish they could fix me now…my back hurts…hmmm…guess they’ve determined its not my back, its my kidneys….funny….ohhhh my kidney’s hurt…that just sounds odd….

The CT scanner guy was HOT btw…and you know what….I think he might be my neighbor…maybe….good thing I wore my cute lil black tangas (undies…case you didn’t know) today for he got to see me in that hospital gown with the back all open …ohhh la la …

…think I’ll go sleep now….hope everyone’s Monday went well….

I sometimes wonder about doctors myself... Many times it seems like their job is to make an educated guess and thats it. And then the tests they do really tell you whats wrong. Sounds like the CT guy got a nice view I definitely would have liked seeing that...

hehe! i hope you enjoyed giving him the peek
I hope you do feel better soon. Kidneys are strange lil things, but I'm glad you don't have stones, I hear those can be a truely painful experience

Good luck with everything young lady. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Kidneys are strange that's for sure. For some reason pain meds don't work well on them. I'm no doctor, I do play one on occasion though, but maybe it's just a bladder infection. Women get them more commonly than men. Not to get gross or anything. Take care.

The interesting is that most people have a difficult time saying 'I don't know'. I think there is a bit of that in all of us - that can be frustrating when others don't say it to us - or (dare I say it) when we don't know and don't say it!

The case of your doctor would really drive me nuts.

Hope by now you are feeling better. I know how frustrating these things can be.
