Too sick to knit
I cannot believe it but I just called in sick for work tomorrow. I have not had a sick day in almost 20 years. It started over the weekend with a UTI and apparently has gone into a kidney infection.

I've been laying in bed shivering and sweating with a temp of 103 since I got home this afternoon. I was sick last night but felt better this morning so went to work, as the day progressed I felt worse and worse. Luckily I was able to reschedule patients and find someone to cover me tomorrow.

BUT THE WORST PART IS I can't even bare the thought of knitting. It's been over 24 hours since I picked up my needles and I am going through major withdrawal

Poor You!

The best I can offer is some sympathy and maybe a bowl of cyber-chicken soup. Or in your case cyber cranberry juice.

Take good care of yourself and feel better soon. You will be feeling better before you know it.

Best,
Susan

Oh, kidney infections are the worst. Last time I had one, I was on heavy duty antibiotics and it still seemed to take forever to completely clear up. Feel better

Oh, dear Ginny, so sorry you're ill and you definitely deserve several "Poor Babys"! Hope you'll feel better soon and lots of and to you. Had kidney infections as a child and they are not fun...make you dizzy and just generally yucky!

Take good care of yourself, Ginny. Believe it or not, the knitting will be there when you feel up to doing it.

I'm the queen of bladder problems, so have the upmost sympathy for you.
