I haven't been well

It’s been a while since I’ve been online, I’ve been pretty sick over the last few days and this is the first time I’ve felt ok to get up. I have a really nasty UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) that hit me hard & fast and should have put me in hospital. I can’t remember much of it, I had a really high fever, a headache and I was completely out of it. I know I went to the doctor and she said I have a bad UTI, but that’s pretty much it, luckily my mum came with me to remember everything. Apparently the doctor made me go have a blood test, but I can’t remember any of that and I actually woke up the morning after wondering why there was some cotton wool and tape on my arm). My doctor really wanted to send me to the hospital because I was so sick, she said I was in the ‘grey zone’ where she wasn’t sure what to do with me. She ended up sending me home with some strong antibiotics, and told me to come back the next day so she could see if i was getting better. Luckily I was a bit better when I went back the next day, I really did not want to be put in the hospital for 4 days on a drip, no bloody way.

I’m still quite ill, I feel dizzy if I get up so I’ve been in bed watching movies my mum rented for me. The antibiotics are working well, but the side affects from them are making my stomach feel horrible. Hopefully by this weekend I’ll be starting to feel a lot better. I have to have another blood test on Saturday to see if my white blood cell count has gone down, it was really high in the first test because of the infection and it got everyone worried. Except me, I can’t remember half of it.

Anyways, I thought I should tell you all where I’ve been. I’m feeling kind of dizzy now, so I’m going to go lay down again, but I’ll blog again sometime next week after I get the blood test results back. Lets all hope my white blood cell levels are back to normal by then. :)
