Dr. Brown prescribed me a Z-pack (Azithromycin) while I was at the doctor's on Tuesday.
Yesterday, several hours after taking the first dose, I broke out in a heat flush all over my face, jaw, neck and chest and then it spread to the rest of my body. I checked my temperature several times and it was 97.4° every time, which is normal for me. But my face was on FIRE!!! So I called the after-hours answering service and they told me to call the after-hours clinic. I called and they told me to go ahead and come in.

She ordered a nurse to give me a steroid shot in my hip; it hurt so bad! It's still sore! About 20 minutes later another nurse brought me a double-dose of Children's Benadryl and the doctor prescribed me a round of steroids instead of another antibiotic. She said since I wasn't feeling better after Tuesday, that I probably have a virus instead of a bacterial infection.
|I hate sitting on the table. J gave me his chair.|
So, on the way home, J stopped at Walgreen's to see if the pharmacy was still open. They weren't; it was after 9 pm. Instead, he got a new oscillating fan on a stand so I could sleep in the spare bedroom; I don't want to get him more sick. When we got home, I went straight to bed while J was putting my fan together. I slept straight through from 10-6:30. Since I got up a couple of times to go to the bathroom, I got about 8 hours of sleep! The doctor told me to keep taking the Benadryl, so hopefully I'll get some more sleep later on in the day.
|He looks thrilled to be spending the another night at the Dr.|
I already feel a little better after finally getting some rest. Keep praying that J doesn't get worse y'all! :)
