Another UTI

Mom's PT called today. She said that Mom was weak and didn't want to do her exercises this week. She suggested that Mom might have a UTI and sure enough, after taking her to Urgent Care and testing a specimen along with blood work to make sure she wasn't anemic or something else, she does. She's now taking an antibiotic and hopefully it was caught soon enough so that she won't have to be on multiple courses. I'll bet this explains her restlessness from the other night. The UC doc was a male and Mom liked him. She's so anti-male doctor, but she always likes them when she gets them.

It has been raining very hard here today, all day. And it is cold. Not the best time to have to take Mom to the doctor, but it worked out OK. Tonight I said to Mom, 'it's pouring rain outside again', and she said 'I don't care, I'm inside nice and warm'. My crocuses are blooming and the grass is really getting green. The trees are leafing out and my allergies and Mom's are kicking in. I don't care, I'm so ready for spring.

Sorry about your Mom's UTI. Again, I hope the antibiotics work quickly!

Ah, the dreaded UTI. I'm so glad you caught it when you did. I hope the antibiotics do their job quickly.

I'm glad that you caught and have begun treatment on the UTI so quickly. They certainly can throw your world into a tailspin. Hope that you are both on the mend soon!
