Down and Out

I am pretty sure I have a kidney infection. That would explain a lot, including the pain in my back.

I took some herbal remedies and am feeling much better. I have a doctor's appointment on Friday. If the herbs keep working, I'll be fine until then.

I will spare you the details, but suffice it to say I did nothing with the horses and am not likely to for a few more days.

Other than that, NJ is suffering from a heat wave. Temps are way up in the 90's and it is quite uncomfortable outside.

And, of course, the guys who are putting a new roof on my aunt's house were here today! I can't even imagine how miserable that job would be in this heat.

Wimping out and sitting in the AC....I will think of something clever to post this week.


  1. Anonymous8:19 PM

    Hope you feel much better soon - that sort of thing can be very unpleasant, and tiring too.

  2. Today it is supposed to be 38 degrees C. Needless to say that I hope to ride before 10 am.

    My son & I will stay in with air conditioning on. It is not the heat the problem it is teh humidity! Really high. It is difficult to breath.

    Yuck yuck

    I hope you feel better soon!

    Drink water LOTS of it, if possible mineral water. Our tap water is so digusting, I have to buy bottled water!

  3. Ooh, you have my sympathy. I have never had one but my sister has chronic kidney infections and feels very sick with them. Might as well be inside with the heat though. I am sure the horses aren't wondering why they are idle.

  4. Feel better soon and take it easy, it's too hot out to do much anyway.
    Can't imagine being on a roof in this weather.

  5. Here's to a speedy recovery! I don't think the horses will mind their little "vacation". Take it easy and get well soon!

  6. ouch, painful. hope you do last to your appointment, antibiotics are required as you know...
