What a relief!

Today I learned that my current possible kidney infection (and subsequent need to perhaps start antibiotics) will NOT affect my ability to get my next IV Crohn’s treatment! This is HUGE news!!!!

The IV infusion treatment I’m receiving wipes out my immune system, so it can be very dangerous to get sick at all or need antibiotics. Getting sick would also mean I’d lose my appointment slot and have to wait weeks to start the process all over again. I was so scared to miss my appointment that I was trying to ignore my painful kidney. But today I learned that my GI doctor gave the approval for me to go ahead despite the kidney infection — as long as I don’t get worse or a fever with chills. So, fingers crossed! I’m on a mission to stay as healthy as possible before next Wednesday’s big appointment!

Today’s #OneGoodThing was the massive feeling of relief knowing that I get to keep my next treatment appointment!

Day 229 of 365. And Day 595 in a row!
