Thank you for your prayers

A quick update on my doctor's visit - Paul was super husband today and came with me. This is a big deal. He hates doctor’s offices and above all hospitals. My new doctor was wonderful; he lived up to his reputation. He was methodical, detailed and gave me hope!
The good news is he doesn’t think I have IC, but an over active bladder. I always thought of over active bladder as a condition that made you have to use the restroom all the time. I never knew it came with pain and major discomfort. Next steps are a trial of a new medication, then a re-visit in four weeks. We are hoping this is the cure otherwise the next steps do not sound much fun.

Thanks for all the prayers!

Prayers for Wednesday

Okay, I realize that I have abandoned my blog for over an entire month now. I am so sorry. I have been super busy and dealing with a lot lately. I have decided to share some of the details not for sympathy, but for prayers! I need all the prayers!

It all started in February when I came down with a urinary tract infection. After two rounds of different antibiotics and four different doctors I found my self sitting at a Urology Office. I have suffered now for two months with painful symptoms, learning what a catheter feels like twice, had CT scan, crazy medicine that offers no relief just terrible side effects. This Wednesday I have another appointment with a second Urologist who specializes in Cystitis and Interstitial Cystitis. I am hoping for a great outcome!

I will update you on Wednesday evening!

I hope everyone had a great Easter; I will post photos and share the details about our great weekend and Paul’s first sermon at church!
