    No shopping, just driving around the local areas and enjoying the sights along with the changing topography. It was a warm sunny day and it would give me a chance to perhaps take some more photos of Henry County and the surrounding counties.

Infections can be limited to the bladder or can also spread to the kidneys causing pyelonephritis.  Occasionally in men the infection can also infect the prostate.
