At Home and at Rest

October 4, 2013

Around here, it’s time for the annual adventure we call pyelonephritis.  It’s a long word that is kind of fun to say, but is not fun to feel.  Not fun at all.  My latest theory is that celiac makes it hard for antibiotics to be absorbed and that is why we end up with the IV version.  Every. Year.

I had plans yesterday.  I worked in the morning, knew I’d have the infusion sometime that day, then I was going to go back to work and to a Jazz Vespers service and to knitting group and Friday I was going to work and then to a concert and Saturday I was going to go hiking and look at beautiful fall things in the Berkshires.

As I read my discharge instructions to The Kettle Slayer, he laughed.  “Sounds like someone knows The Magic Princess all too well.”

“The Magic Princess is advised to be at home and at rest 10/3 to 10/6, returning to work 10/7.”

Seriously??  At home AND at rest?  Doesn’t this guy know I have places to be?

Almost fourteen hours of sleep later, I’ve decided maybe this rest business wasn’t such a bad idea after all.   If you need me, I’ll be at home.  Resting.

      Yes, you do know a little about resting, don’t you? I am doing my best to be a good patient and am thankful that this seems to be easily resolved once we get to the right medicine. Maybe I’ll finish that book tomorrow!
