Medical update from yesterday.
There's good news and bad news.

The right leg, while still red and a bit swollen, doesn't hurt to change position anymore and is fine for walking (the sore left hip, which is likely related to how I sleep, is more painful when walking). I feel more awake and alert now than most of the weekend. Although I was only able to eat 3 slices of pizza last night, I did eat, and I feel only a bit more hungry than usual today.

The bad news...
I think I'm going to have to discount my main bit of evidence pointing to kidney stone.

It appears, upon closer examination of my anatomy, that the "dribbles" caught by my underwear got pressed against my scrotum, dried, and stuck, causing patches of skin to be pulled away and blood to ooze, also to be absorbed by the underwear.

It's 63 degrees out, I'm in my skivvies, and I'm sweating. Not entirely unusual, but one more thing to note

I'm going to print out these two journal entries and take them with me to the doctors office. We'll see if they are helpful.

Please let me know when you are going to the doctor's and what he says. Inquiring moms want to know. In fact, inquiring moms want a call.

And the doctors office says...

...come back at 3:30.

Sounds like a UTI, especially since you seem to have fever symptoms. I hope it's only a bladder infection, not a kidney infection; kidney infections are a lot harder to knock down. Meanwhile, stay hydrated.
