Garden Girl..and more...

Well..I took myself back to the dr. on Wednesday..and yep..I had a sneaking suspicion that although the pain in the kidney had went away..that the first round of antibiotics wasn't enough to wipe out the infection.
3 days of antibiotic just didn't seem sufficient to me.

So..dr. said that it didn't take.
So now I'm on a 7 day course and will go back in about 5 1/2 weeks to the dr.
I really hope and pray this dose takes and gets rid of the infection.
I bought myself some organic apple juice and am drinking a glass in the morning and one at night. I read that this is supposed to help dissolve the crystals/kidney stones "if" you have them.
But they just said I have a little pustules in the sample/no blood which is good.They didn't mention stones or crystals, but I figured drinking the organic juice couldn't hurt.
I asked the dr. if this could have been caused by accidentally letting myself get dehydrated and he said "oh yes, that can do it to you every time"..along with bacteria"

So..just so you all know..don't allow yourselves to get dehydrated. It is not fun.
We've had absolutely lovely weather here the last few days, and this afternoon the "Thunderbirds" from the Airforce... were flying over my house doing their loop-de-loops in preparation for an air show out at our AFB which is only about 4-5 miles from my house, but..since we live across the water(plus 2 blocks) ...from the flight line side of the base..the planes fly over the water to practice...and we can usually see a "free show" the day before the actual show..if we just look up in the sky in our backyard.
In fact they flew real low right over the pine trees in my front yard today.
My little kids loved watching it...and my funny 3 yr. old was hollering"Slow down guys!"...haha.
Well...hubby brought home 2 six packs of tomato plants to get put in the ground.
My attempts at starting a few of them from seed didn't take.
So..hopefully these ones will grow well for us.
I'd definitely like to make homemade salsa this year.
Have a lovely Day!

I hope that this round of antibiotics will take care of the problem for you. It has been a long haul.

Working in a garden area???? How fun will that be? Be sure to keep those lovely plants watered. I hate to go to a nursery and see everything dried up. :(

Hi Tina :) I hope that you will be much better very soon! And will be praying with you about the new job adventure. Keep us posted.

Oh and about that salsa... let me know if you are looking for a recipe. I have one that is beyond wonderful ;)
Love to you, Q
