Yeah, it goes from the bladder to the kidneys to the whole circulatory system in nearly a heart beat. When it gets in the blood stream, you're in trouble. So, I'm so relieved you got taken care of. Lots of continued healing vibes headed your way.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Thomas Jefferson

^ This! I had a UTI -> bladder -> kidney infection and like you, Paige, I was days away from sepsis. It put me out of commission for a good week, it sucked majorly. Let it be a lesson to everyone on here, especially the ladies: monitor your UTIs closely because dem b*tches can migrate, and FAST. Don't mess around!
