I went to the doctor this morning ~ I got to see my own this time and not the one on call so that was nice! Anyway ~ she said that my test results made her "cringe" ~ I told they make me cringe too! She prescribed Ciprofloxacin.
Silly me looked up the definition online ~ "used to treat severe and life threatening bacterial infections". Must be why it hurts so much ~ it's severe!
So I take the antibiotic for five days and then go back to see her. No more painkillers, just ibuprofen. She wants me to "be aware" of the pain! That ought to be very easy!

Marie, I'll be praying for you! (I've never experienced a kidney stone...)
Hugs to you, my friend! Kimberly

"Be aware" cruel! Hang in there. Thank goodness for the distraction of hockey playoffs!
