Friday Treasures & a Health Update

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  

I went to the doctor on Sunday and he had sent me for a couple of tests to see what was causing my horrible condition, and it has been more than 3 weeks now.  I thought my condition was improving in my last update that I shared with you all, but that was very short lived.  I saw the doctor today and he has received the first test results.  I have a bacterial infection called C Difficile.  Neither the doctor nor myself have any idea how I came to have this. Anyway, he has begun me on some antibiotic that I have started with today...and am to take for the next 10 days.  I also plan to, of course, eat plenty of fruits and veggies, yogourt and other healthy foods.  He wants to see me back in 5 days to see how I am doing and to see if the second test results show anything more.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with C Difficile, I am providing a link for you here.
C Difficile   Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and thoughts on my behalf.  If anything new arises I will let you know.

The videos I have selected for this post are:

  1. Oh? Bacterial, eh? Glad it's nothing serious. Take your meds, get well soon. Ya...I always eat a lot when sick - psycho, I think I need the energy to fight back. Many cannot eat and lose weight when sick, I will put on weight. :(

  2. I am SO sorry! Yes, I know about CDiff. I have been tested for it about three times. It is just miserable, and you really have my sincere sympathy! Considering what you have, I think you were a brave girl and did not complain to us near as much as you could have.

  3. I know about c. difficile. I hope you get better soon. I will be thinking of you.

  4. pas de bonnes nouvelles Linda

    je te souhaite un bon rétablissement..


  5. I hope you will get well very soon, Linda! All the best for you!

    Annoying that you have that infection Linda, I hope it goes better with you quickly. The videos Spring Rain, Scarlet Macaw and Chinese Wood flute music, are beautiful. Greetings from Edward.

  17. Hope the antibiotics clear things up for you! Sending healing thoughts your way.

  18. Poor you, dear Linda..., I'm so sorry... Hope you get well soon.
    Gag -> really impossible !
    Nice log !

  19. I had never heard of that infection before, and hope you will be healed soon. Yes, take yogurt, a good kind is Siggi, which has 7 live cultures and is super tasty. My favorite is their coconut because it has just a little sugar.

  20. Get well soon. Have a healthy weekend.

  21. I wish you the best, linda and I hope the antibiotic does his job! :-))

    have a nice weekend!

  22. Never heard of it, but at least now you have a diagnosis, and it sounds very treatable, so hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon, and you'll be getting back to normal - it's about time! ♥

  23. Sorry to hear that you're not well and hope you'll soon be better. Thinking of you.

  24. Linda I hope you a clean bill of health soon, wishing you well. Take care , enjoyed your Video's and Quotes. x
