A Line To You Special Ones

Doing what I said never again
but had to

UTI, so bad

So lucky I could reach a helper
and he picked me up
almost literally
and head for the local hospital.

Two days of IV with antibiotics, potassium, and fluid.

Home, weak
so sorry I am a wimp
just weary of this.

So trying to regain my strength
I will
just takes a while.
In bed for 2 days
makes you kind of weak

Thanks to my writer, my youngest daughter
doing a lot of research.

Enough shared

Love to all of those who read my rambling.

A surprise just a while ago
an image of a White Cone Flower
I have Pink
So I consider this one
a gift to me

I am so very sorry dear Ernestine, what a setback and you were doing so very well. Very troubling. I hope your daughter finds something in her research as to what is causing this.

Keep us posted please. You are very dear to so many of us out here.

You're on the top of the prayer list. I agree with WWW, you seemed to be doing so well. I hope you can gain your strength back quickly. I'll be watching for posts to follow your progress. Love to you, dear one.

Prayers for strength and patience, Ernestine. ♥ I'm sorry you're going through this again.

Dearest Ernestine ~ I'm so sorry you had to go through this. Love, hugs and prayers for you sweet friend, FlowerLady

Sorry that you’ve had this... 😝 Ihave heard of a couple things that help prevent UTIs. Let me know if you’re interested to hear about those, and I’ll email you. 🙂💗

The White blossom, which should be Pink, is truly a sign and a blessing.

Sending a Big hug to you Ernestine. I wish you a full recovery from the UTI!

Oh my dear one, I am so sorry to hear another UTI got you. I was in the hospital myself two weeks ago with BP issues and they said I had a UTI, too. All gone now, and I am back to usual energy, so I hope the same for you. I find that frequent SITZ baths help a lot.
Thank you to your daughter for the assistance!!
I love that beautiful white flower. What a nice surprise.

Love to you!

Tour lovely white coneflower is a message, and it confers a benediction. Dearest Ernestine, you are not a wimp, anything but in fact. You are a light and a warrior, an inspiration to us all.

Oh, my! I'm glad you're back home and hope you find rest and relief from your pain.

We've been enjoying comfortable summer days here. Last night, I heard cicadas singing! I can't believe it's that time already...

My father (who lives with us) fell a few weeks ago. He is slow in returning to his "normal". Ribs and internal processes take more time to mend when you're 92.
