I swear I must have a black cloud looming over my head.  I went to the doctors this morning  it was discovered I have an infection in my uterus.  

My pain started increasing Monday evening, by yesterday it hurt to sit or stand up straight.  I called the doctors office twice only to be told, it was all normal.  She told me to take my pain medication and go to sleep.  REALLY? GENIOUS? As if I hadn't already tried that.

By last night the pain was so bad I paged the on call doctor.  She told me it didnt sound like anything life threatening and to call the office if I started running a fever.

I tossed and turned all night.  As soon as they open I called and was able to get an early apt.  I am still so annoyed that they wouldn't listen to me.  A woman knows her body. I knew something wasn't right.  If left untreated a uterine infection can do some damage.

In between of all of this my brother called to let me know my sweet Gran had passed away earlier this morning. She was a wonderful lady.  I have so many great memories from my childhood thanks to her, and my grandpa.

So I am packing my bags and heading to Scotland tomorrow afternoon.  When I get back I think I might just have a mental breakdown.


  1. Ohhh, I am so sorry for the black cloud! And my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during all of this. I am sending you a hug.

  2. The old wives tale says things happen in 3's. Here's hoping your all done.

  3. Hoping time spent with family will help heal your heart and that you will be feeling better soon.

  4. So sorry for all you are going through and your Grand's passing. Thinking of you. Safe travels.
