Hello everyone! Sorry this is not a crafting post, I just felt like I wanted to give a little shout out to all of our peeps out there since we have all but disappeared lately. And, unfortunately, there has not really been much crafting going on here at all! Bummer, I know. So what have I been up to? This.
Yes that is my couch. I'd like to say that it usually looks better than that, but in all honesty, it is usually much worse. I mean, only one to managed to make it's way into the picture! I lived there for about 5 days, starting last Wednesday. That is the day that the kidney infection officially set in. Have you ever had one? They suck sooooo bad! I went into the doc on Thursday and was put on antibiotics, and pain meds. They helped a lot with the pain and all the other junk that goes along with a kidney infection (UTI, blood in the urine, yadda yadda yadda) but they didn't help with the puking that decided to set in. I puked up every single thing that I was able to get down, which wasn't much. 2 pieces of toast on Thursday, 4 saltines and a cup of milk on Friday, and 4 more saltines on Saturday. By the time Saturday night came around I found myself at the urgent care on IV's. I was back in on Sunday morning for more and finally by Monday morning I was feeling better! Wahoo! Well for a minute. Urgent care wanted me back on Monday morning and thought it would be better to be safe then sorry and decided to give me a shot of the antibiotics they had been giving me through the IV's. So then I ended up here.
Why you might ask? Because they give you that antibiotic shot in your butt. SOOOO painful!!!! I can just imagine the coversation the doctor had who invented giving shots in the butt.

DOC: Hey nurse, I'm bored so I have this great idea.
NURSE: Alright doc, what is it.
DOC:  It's like this, when you go give that guy his antibiotic shot, you should do it in his butt!
NURSE: Ok doc, but why?
DOC: Because that way, we can laugh every time he has to sit funny, and have a good laugh when we get to watch him walk out like a goon!
NURSE: Good one, doc, good one.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that they had that conversation. So because of that funny doctor, I have reparked myself in my living room, only this time I'm on the recliner, sitting on a heating pad, doing a whole lot of nothing at all. Good times. So here's to feeling better, and possibly starting a brotherhood of all of those who have had a shot in the butt, because until you've had one, it is impossible to understand.
