Well this has been a whirlwind of a few days, there are good reasons that I’ve been dead silent. First of all, I have been crabby and didn’t feel like writing. Secondly, I woke up yesterday to HIVES!!! Just what I needed now, right?
I had hives a few years ago due to a reaction to a medication, but I didn’t take anything new so we were all confused why they decided to rear their ugly head. I of course got very nervous, so I immediately called the oncologists office. The doc on call told me to take Benadryl, so I did. Nothing happened. So I called back and she told me to take two. Oye. By 9:30a, I crawled back into bed. I passed out so hard from the pills I woke up at 11:30! Fucking hives were still there. Anyway, long story short I was in a Benadryl coma all day yesterday. I felt awful and groggy.
Today I woke up and they are still here but smaller. I assume they will go away by themselves in a few days. I swear, once I start feeling better something else comes and fucks with me.
I was actually feeling good yesterday minus the hives, and Friday I even went out for a few hours with Zack’s dad, step mom and sister. Last night I couldn’t even make it to Mr. Chow for dinner because I felt like such shit. It’s a good thing Zack brought me leftovers so I can still enjoy the food!
Today I feel better (slightly itchy) but good enough to get out of the house. I felt like I was in a chemo coma again this weekend! I have been inside my house so long for the past few weeks I have memorized tile patterns. Otherwise my spirits are back up, taste has returned (dull but I’ll take it) and yesterday was hair washing day. Basically it is a good recipe for a good family day. I’ll take it.
