Yun ang nadecipher ko sa resetang sinulat ng doctor ko kanina. Urinary tract infection nga, gaya ng suspetsa namin ni Sam since last week pa. That explains the chills for the past three nights, the latest of which was a bone-wracking experience I wouldn’t wish on any of my friends.
My OB-Gyne was the only doctor I’d been to here in Iligan. Decades ago, Sam’s family had lived in the rented part of their house, so she was an old friend too. I told her my fears of possible oncoming perimenopause and she told me she had the same worries, turned out she was only a couple of years younger than I was. Welcome to the club.
She had this nifty testing kit that looked like a fancy version litmus paper, divided into small rainbow-colored squares. After her her assistant dipped the tester into my cloudy urine sample they had the diagnosis right away. That was cool, as I thought I’d have to go to a lab for the urinalisys and would have to wait for the results the next day. She assured me that the antibiotics were not going to affect Maia (who is still under full breastfeeding). If you don’t feel any improvement in the next two days, come back immediately so we can up your dosage or change your medication entirely. And that’s it! Bon Voyage for next week, we’ll miss you and Maia. Maia’s pediatrician is her older sister who’s clinic was next door.
I’ll miss them both. And I’ll miss all of you because I vowed to stay away from the computer while I’m on medication. Antibiotics does weird things to me.
