I took breaks while i was vaccuming. (I had to take a break every 5 or so minutes because i would just get soo exhausted) but with all of our furbabies- we definitely neeed to vaccume. I always feel better the cleaner our place is- so maybe that'll help
I've been worn out all day though so i won't be doing anything else like that till i get more energy. They said it could take a while to get my potassium levels back to normal.

Yup- i got it a few months ago- I cought ringworm from my foster kittens and my dermatologist gave me "Gruffilcan" (sp?) to take for it. Well, that medicine gave me thrush as well as a nasty stomach ache...so my doctor took me off of it and gave me this swish and swallow type mouthwash that cleared it up pretty quickly. I recently had allergy testing done back on the 7th and while i don't have a physical (hives etc) allergy to yeast, they think i have a chemical one- so i get thrush really easily - especially if i've been taking an antibiotic. Thankfully this time, i cought it very early, so i have my mouthwash now and it will hopefully clear that up soon. It's called "Nystatin"- and it really works well to clear it up. I'm sooooo greatfull i have a wonderful doctor who actually answers his calls on the weekend- he called it in for me today.
/ It's just sooooooo frusterating because i've been sick as a dog all week and this was the last thing i needed....not to mention, money wise- all of those medicines and medical bills from insurance are not going to be pretty.
/ I have never heard of acidophilous. What is that??? I have to go to my GI doctor tomorrow for a follow up appointment since i was in the hospital on friday. He wants to check my blood count and potassium levels. I will ask him about that while i'm there because it would be nice to have something that could help prevent thrush in the future. Thankyou for telling me about it!
