I wanted to write something cutsie about Ava being 30 days old today...but I am just not up to it. I have been running an 103 temp today and that wipes me out or I end up soaking wet and shivering. I knew I had been running a fever these past few weeks but I hadn't actually taken my temp until today.

The results came back from the CT scan that I have a 1mm stone that is normal and will pass without incident. So Its not kidney stones. I just have an acute kidney infection that is proving to be a bit stubborn. I picked up my second round of antibiotics today and will be taking those for the next 10 days. If that doesn't work then we will try something else I suppose.

I am sooo behind here at the house its sad! I have seen a pattern that my temp peeks between noon and 4pm which results in me being reduced to laying on the couch. We are behind in school, house work and much more I'm sure. I have been snippy and grumpy towards my precious children.....even though I don't want to be. Ughh!

Anyway....I'm sure it wont last forever and it could always be worse so I need to be thankful even while feeling so bad. So much easier said than done.

Thank you all who ask how I am feeling, it means so much to me.

Oh Audrey I am so sorry you are feeling bad. Please do take it easy and recover fast! It is hard to see the house not organized but everyone will understand. Just rest on the couch and cuddle with your children. Even when I am not in the mood somehow donig this changes my mood! Will be praying for ya!

As a word of caution since you are taking antibiotics. Smiley recently took antibiotics for his infection and caused me to get Thrush! IT hurts horribly! I have never experineced pain like this. I hope you do not get it. I read that you increase your chances of thrush when you or your baby takes antibiotics.

In my prayers,

I had a slite case of thrush with Eve, without having had taken antibiotics. She had it for a long time, a few months I think. Finally I tried that "violet stuff" and it went away.

The Dr actually wants me to stop nursing Ava for a few days so she does not get so much antibiotics, but I am not willing to do that.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
