Today I got a progesterone draw and another level. It is my last of my own choosing. The result of 770ish from 740 in three days confirms what I already knew in my heart. What is left is my "new OB" appt Tuesday where I might request an ultrasound to rule out ectopic. What I don't want to deal with is another doctor trying to shove a methotrexate shot on me. If I have to drive to Omaha to have an ectopic responded to in a safer and pro life manner I will. Period. Normally I would eat something nice and chocolately (such as a pound of peanut m&m's) but I think getting C Diff on top of this would add insult to injury. After all, I have been on Biaxin (8days), immediately Cipro (14 days), a week later a 10 day IV of clindamyacin, overlapped with Zithromax (14 days). Thanks to a strong probiotic and little sugar, I have not yet lost all good bacteria. It's only a matter of time before we dump more antibiotics in the system and I imagine a diet change I have been fighting for years is in my future. Our infection is back with a vengence. What used to work, no longer does. Changes ahead. 

For those who wanted to know more about infection, please read this post. I think it will answer a lot of your questions, but feel free also to google infection on the search box on my blog. My blog is meant to be a resource for those with exactly the questions you are asking, so start there. However always, feel free to email me anytime with your questions. I always make time to answer questions.

Also, E, are you there? I don't have a link to your private blog and would like to follow. NY may be in our future as well, and I didn't realize I was missing out on a lot of your info. Thanks!
