Ok…so update on what’s been going on with me since so many people have been like what is going on with you:
I went home from work last Tuesday night with aches and chills, thinking I just had a flu, but I started throwing up and it just kept going. I kept thinking every morning I would wake up and it would be better, like most flus right? But by Friday I knew it was pretty bad and I went in and the doctor thought I had viral gastroenteritis, which is not pleasant either and it’s just basically an awful stomach flu that he told me could last up to two weeks and I would need to go get fluids because I was dehydrated. When I didn’t hold down the anti-nausea prescriptions, I had to go to Urgent Care…where my heart rate was at about 140 and my blood pressure was below 70, which is BAD. They gave me two bags of fluids and sent me home.
So, Saturday morning, we finally just went to the ER because I woke up that morning still throwing up, with a worse fever, headache and everything, so my Mom and Grandpa were like it’s something else. They figured out that it was Pyelonephritis, which is a kidney infection, which is pretty bad. Every time I tell people they’re like o, that’s it. No…not a bladder infection, like all the way up in my kidneys. And when you’re kidneys stop working, so does the rest of your body. I was also still super super dehydrated. (Later my new good doctor told me I was pretty close to dying and it’s life-threatening, so it’s a good thing I came in when I did. I just thought I had a flu and I was going to wake up and feel better one morning.) So they put three more bags of fluids in me with morphone, and started me on some antibiotics. They did a bunch of swabs and blood tests etc. And then I had to do Potassium tests because I took so much fluid in that it threw all of that off balance. And an oral form of antibiotic that more specifically was targeting the bacteria infection. The one in my IV was more of an overall one.
I went home and slept a lot and we had to come back Sunday morning because I had to do another round of the fluid and antibiotics. We had to go back to the ER on Monday to do the same thing and check on my testing, where we found out that the culture of bacteria came back and it was resisting the antibiotic they were giving me so I had to start all over on a new one! I got more fluid and antibiotics and switched to a new oral one because the other one wasn’t working. Since the other one wasn’t working, my kidneys weren’t working. And since they weren’t it wasn’t filtering out my pee and it was building up in my body and making me even more sick and bloated and I gained 11 pounds of water weight, which was all pressing on my stomach and lungs and hurting so bad. So they were trying to get it out and get the antibiotic working. It was awful. And I still was throwing up and having back pain and headaches this whole time.
So finally, my mom just took me back to Grandma’s and I basically slept for two days and it sort of started working, but then I started getting awful back and chest pains. I couldn’t even breathe. I was supposed to go back for labs to make sure everything was working and do a follow up on Thursday, but we switched it and went to the Doctor a day early. This time I made sure to get in with a good one and not the one who diagnosed me wrong. :/ He was super nice and way more helpful and caring. It’s incredible the difference your doctor makes. I seriously just wanted to cry after he came and talked to me because it relieved so much stress just having him tell me that it was normal for what happened to my body and that I could call him whenever. I didn’t feel like I was just passed over in 5 minutes because where were more patients. That’s how my nurse at the emergency room was too. He told me to ask for him every day so that he would know what was going on and he could help me better. It was so so nice. Anyway, It looks like these antibiotics are working and my infection is starting to go away, but he said I could not feel good for up to a month. He said I had a life-threatening disease and I need to be really careful and take things easy for a while. I had to go back to the hospital to get a potassium test to make sure I’m not taking too much. And I had to do chest x-rays because it was hurting so bad and I was having trouble breathing. The doctor said I could have maybe cracked a rib because I was throwing up so much or possibly aspirated throw-up or liquid into my lungs. Hopefully not either of those, but I don’t have the results back yet.
Anyway, I still don’t feel well, but at least I know it’s going to get better now. Thank you for all of your sweet texts, comments, and emails! You guys are the best readers and friends!

And, now that I’ve probably totally grossed you all out, here is my outfit from when I was way cuter and not sick 🙂
I know, another Free People Dress, but I can’t help myself, they’re just the best and Nordstrom has a ton of summer styles on sale right now! (See below for some similar styles!)
Also, I’m obsessed with these ‘Candela’ Earrings from Joyiia Jewelry. They’re the fun kind that actually go behind your ear lobe for like a 3D effect. Anyway, I love the shape and style and you need to get some!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is my favorite sale of the Year! Who puts all of their NEW clothes on sale right when they come out right? Well it just started open for the public, so now you can all shop it as of yesterday! I listed some of my favorite picks below and I want to know what you are buying! Personally, I like to stock up on things like workout gear, leggings, and beauty products that I know I will use all year long, so I might as well get it on sale. I love the prices on the PMDs and Clarisonic brushes and re-fills! I would jump on those if I were you! I like getting my boots and jackets early too, because I know I’m just going to buy them in a month to two months anyway. Why not get them on Sale? Tops and jewelry is always fun too because you can usually wear those all year long. I usually always pick up a new pair of running shoes too, because sometimes those can get pricey when they aren’t on sale!
Also, be on the lookout on my Instgram (@kristinrosedavis) on Monday because I’m joining some girls for a giveaway to Nordstrom and you could use it for all your fun buys!

This week has been a little bit out of control for me. I started last weekend by having my huge family reunion with about 70 people for my Grandpa’s 90th birthday which was so fun and awesome to see everyone in one place. Just missed my brother so much because he’s out of the county! He gets back in 6 months though!!! My other brother Adam was finally in Utah though. He hasn’t been up here probably for over ten years. So that was really fun and we got to go up to our Cabin for a little bit. It’s so beautiful and peaceful. There’s so cell reception up there so it’s kind of a nice break too. We rode our horses and took a little hike with the puppies. Little Ryder just jumped right into the beaver ponds. I was laughing so hard. No fear. Had some car trouble though (ugh). Got that fixed and headed back into work on Tuesday, but I started feeling really sick. I will spare you the details, but I’ve been pretty much been stuck in bed ever since. I can’t remember the last time that I have been this sick for this long. I can’t even watch tv or get on the computer for more than about 5-10 minutes at a time because it just hurts my head way too much. So, 1. I apologize to everyone that I have not really been texting or emailing back. I will be trying to catch up on that as soon as I can sit up basically; and 2. You should stay as far away from me as you can. You do not want whatever I have. Lol
So, today I just have a fun, bright outfit that I got to shoot with the girls a little bit ago. For some reason, red always kind of makes me think of July (probably because it’s so hot!) so I hope you guys aren’t getting sick of all my red posts!
I love Sonix cases! I just think they are the cutest things out there right now! I love that they are clear so you can still see the color of the phone and then they have the cutest designs, from tropical/summery vibes, to floral, to stripes, to quirky french fries. Plus I feel like the edges are just bounty enough to perfectly protect your case! The one I’m using is the ‘Bahamas’ case.
I’m giving one away on my instragram so make sure to head over to @kristinrosedavis now to enter!
But don’t worry, I’m also giving all my readers a 15% off code for your choice of any of the Sonix cases from outfityours.com! And let me tell you, you better take me up on it because I never see these discounted! Until July 31, get 15% off any Sonix case on their site by using code: WILDONE

The second I saw this dress I knew that I had to have this for the fourth of July. I know that you probably actually think more Cinco de Mayo when you first see it, but that holiday had already past, and the bright red just got me! I love it so much! (It does also come in a white color though if red isn’t your thing!) I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it this weekend, so I apologize if you see way too many pictures of it.
The Fourth of July is pretty much my favorite holiday! I love that it’s in the middle of the summer. I love the fireworks. I love that everyone gets together and eats hot dogs. Haha. I hope you all have a great fourth! Go USA!
