Tamara Has Left the Building

This is Tamara's DH. Just writing to let you know why Tamara has not posted any new updates today.

Tamara is suffering from a bladder infection, which we and the doctor originally thought was appendicitis. The bladder infection was definitely very painful and so it is good not to have to worry about the kids for a day or two. But Tamara is so ready to come home. She said, don't they just send you home with cranberry juice and some pain reliever in the U.S.? The medical or health care system here in Germany is a bit more cautious and wanted to observe Tamara for a few days.

We went to the hospital emergency room on Sunday night and because the signs pointed to appendicitis the doctor wanted to check her in right away. The other option was to have her come back at 9 a.m. the next morning. This was after midnight on Sunday, so we decided to have her admitted.

Tamara is doing well. I will be posting some details on our Living in Germany blog.

Hi Tamara,
Sorry to hear of your recent pain and glad to hear it was not apendicitis, but bladder infections can be very serious. I hope you can take it easy and get some much needed rest and drink lots of clear fluids. I look forward to your being back. Thank your husband for letting us know. Donna in Michigan
