So as some of you know I had the IUD put in Monday. Got a fever of 101.6 on Tuesday and called the VA Wednesday morning and came in urgent care that day. They gave me a shot of antibiotics and weren't sure if it was the IUD or another kidney infection. Then they sent me to OBGYN to have them check me out in case it was the IUD. After being there all day and running labs on blood and urine and arguing with them about how they wanted to take the IUD back out and I disagreed, they told me to come back the very next day (Thursday) to have the same labs repeated and then wait to see if it needs taken out. So the next day, I got up early and dragged my butt out of bed and eventually made my way down to the VA again. I did the same labs and waited for hrs. Finally got to see the OBGYN again but not the same doc, and after they reviewed my labs and asked how I was feeling, they said that everything looked fine and I don't seem to have any infection and my urine came back negative for a kidney infection too! YAy! They told me that they didn't see any reason to have to take the IUD out especially sice my fever is gone. YAY!! Cuz i'm so sick of switching birth controls! So whatever was illing me was gone and maybe we will never know what it was. But I don't care cuz I feel much better and it's all over!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
