I haven't blogged much this week because my wife, Rachel, has been in the hospital with a pretty severe kidney infection.
Last Friday, she started complaining of some pain in her side and had a bit of a fever, but she wasn't feeling too bad and we figured it was just a small bout with the flu. This continued over the weekend and when things got a bit worse she went to see her doctor on Monday. He said she had a kidney infection and prescribed some antibiotics.
By Monday night, Rachel's fever was higher, and she couldn't keep anything down so we took her to the ER first thing Tuesday morning. That's when they discovered that her kidney infection was quite severe and admitted her, hooked her up to and IV and began pumping her full of 3 different types of antibiotics to fight the infection.
She came home yesterday afternoon, and as we were leaving the doctor told us, "If you had waited another 24 hours before bringing her in, she would have been here for several weeks". It was weird because we didn't feel like she had waited or tried to "tough it out"...we just thought she had a flu bug.
Anyway, she is home now and resting. Starting last night, we have had really yummy meals showing up at our door. Not sure it's worth what we've been through the last several days, but it sure is nice to see the body of Christ in action.
