Be careful what you wish for...

I don't usually wish for lower back pain. I've had back issues ever since I had a car accident in 2002 so I've dealt with pain for a long time. Before that I had carpal tunnel in my right wrist and shoulder issues. Needless to say, I've made my chiropractor A LOT of money!

My lower back has been been tender all day and I'm 100% certain that I have a UTI. I have no idea when my GP is going to call me with the results of my urine sample, but since she said that she sent the sample to the lab to see if it grows the same bacteria that it did the last time, I don't expect it until early next week. I've been drinking pure cranberry juice (yup, the unsweetened kind) and lots of water and it still hurts.

Argh.

On a brighter note: The superintendent of program for my school board visited my class today and she was so impressed with my class! From what I hear she's a pretty tough person to please, so we must've done a good job. Yay!

This afternoon at last recess my principal and VP mentioned that the superintendent of our family of schools was in the building. They both said that she was asking about me! How cool is that? I wrote a blurb about my rosary club at the school and she told me how happy she was that I was running it. I guess someone from the admin of my school has been saying good things about me!

I need to get to bed. Hopefully my back feels better tomorrow. :(

  6. JB,
    From what I can remember since I last had a UTI...isn't there an over the counter pain reliver for UTIs? I thought there was, but maybe I am wrong. Just thought I mentioned it in case it can offer you some relief. Praying that you feel better soon!
    xo,

  10. Yuck about the UTI! I don't get them very often (I think I have only had 2 in my life.) But because I didn't recognize the signs for the 2nd one early enough it turned into a full blown kidney infection. Ouch! Yeah, that was a wake-up lesson. At least you caught this before it went there. I am happy the visit from the supervisor went well!
