    Hi all...

    I wanted to give you all an update as to my recent absence from RO.

    I've been offline because I've been seriously ill.

    Last Thursday - I think it was Thursday... I was suffering from lower back pain. I thought it was just my old L5 back pain flaring up, it does that sometimes...so I tool a couple motrin and that helped some...

    But by late that night, I was in agonizing pain, and wasn't able to urinate. Apparently my kidneys had shut down.

    I took myself to the ER and they admitted me, the diagnosis was a very bad kidney infection.

    They wacked me with nuclear doses of antibiotics via IV and then sent me home two days later with a Z pak.

    I'm better... although still very weak, very fatigued.

    So I'm here. And I'm back. Barely. ;)

    -d.

    I've been wondering where you were, Donny. We've been missing you! Glad to hear you are on the recovery road.

    Keep it steady now - bring that fader up slowly...

    Thank you my brothers..

    Right now, I'm feeling the effects of massive doses of antibiotics; I've been on them in the past, for things like strep throat, but I've never had this much of it in my system before.

    It's very... hmmm... I guess all I can say is that I feel it. Lethargic, weak.

    But I'm glad to be alive.

    It was a close call, according to the doc.

    Have an appointment with a kidney/liver doc in the morning. We'll see...

    thanks again :)

    Just take care of yourself Donny, as always Boswell's advice is right on the money.
