well, I had a second UTI in three weeks. and this one is so bad it moved up into my kidneys. the nurse practitioner seemed impressed of sorts when she reviewed my stats:
|Component||Your Value||Standard Range|
|UA PH OP||5.0||5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0|
|UA SPECIFIC GRAVITY OP||1.020||1.015, 1.020, 1.025|
|UA PROTEIN OP||>=300 mg/dL||Negative mg/dL|
|UA GLUCOSE OP||100 mg/dL||Negative mg/dL|
|UA KETONES OP||Trace mg/dL||Negative mg/dL|
|UA BILIRUBIN OP||Small||Negative|
|UA BLOOD OP||Moderate||Negative, Trace|
|UA UROBILINOGEN OP||2.0 EU/dL||0.2, 1.0 EU/dL|
|UA LEUKOCYTE ESTERASE OP||Large||Negative, Trace|
|UA NITRITE OP||Positive||Negative|
the whole >=300 protein bit really made her nervous, lol. all that the above says is “OMG YES, THIS IS A BAD UTI”. XD so there’s that going on.
oh! she did give me a recommendation to a urologist to finally get this mess checked out and see what’s wrong with me. that’s good news.
Brian’s trying to get a table-top group going again. he’s got his eyes on a wrestling RPG. Tiger can’t commit right now; Daminelle is not interested in the wrestling one. so we may be having to bring on new people, or think of something else. Brian, Dam, and I are to talk tonight about what all our options are. I’m willing to DM a story-heavy campaign, not so much a hack’n’slash one. so we’ll see.
really, that UTI has been the bulk of my week. maybe next time I’ll have more interesting things to share….
