Well this was not the night I was planning on!
I went in to RediCare earlier today. I have been sickly. Turns out I have multiple infections. I do have a history of not being easily taken down by germs! – Please allow that graciously! I need to give myself a little ‘ataboy tonight!
RediCare called in an antibiotic that I have taken before. No big deal. I picked it up tonight, got home, and took the first dose. About 2-3 minutes later my hands and feet started itching like crazy. Then my face didn’t feel right. It felt like it was swelling. Then my throat.
I have nothing here. I don’t have allergies! Two people in this house have seasonal allergies and take a daytime medicine. I had no Benadryl or anything. And honestly, I wasn’t thinking that clear anyway.
The hubster sped off towards the Emergency Room. We were too late in the evening at that point for any Redicare or urgent care. I called 911 on the way. I had no idea what to do. This has never happened before. I prayed and prayed and prayed! And the swelling stopped! It didn’t go away. But it stopped. My throat stayed open!
About five hours from the start of this mess and I am home now. My body is it’s normal size again. The itchies are gone. And I have prescriptions here for now three more medicines to help with all the original stuff and the stuff that happened tonight.
Tonight I am thankful for so much!!! I am thankful I didn’t take the medicine right away! I had my daughter in the car driving back from the pharmacy; that would have been much harder! I am thankful I didn’t go up and wait for the prescription to be ready at 5pm, like they had said. Then I would have been alone with this mess. I am thankful that the swelling stopped and did not close of my air flow! I am thankful the hospital got it under control. And I am thankful that I am going to bed now! I am exhausted!
