So last Wednesday I took the last Bactrim that I had been prescribed and went to bed.  On Thursday Sean stopped by the store and picked up some over the counter flu medicine and I took it.  It helped me feel better though I noticed my face seemed a bit red which I thought was brought on by having a fever.  Later in the day after taking a second dose I noticed that my neck and chest looked like I had been out in the sun to long.  So I stopped taking it because I figured it was an allergic reaction.  By the evening, my entire body was bright red, and I was itching.

Friday Sean stopped and got some Benadryl.  After the second dose did nothing, I called the doctor.  Of course, they had no appointments available so I had to go to the Urgent Care center.  I was having an allergic reaction and they gave me a steroid shot and a prescription for 5 days of steroids to continue taking with the Benadryl.  I am starting to think that the whole flu-like symptoms were a sign of an allergic reaction for the antibiotics.

I was still red yesterday when I got up but felt so much better.  Then I took Daisy out and when I was walking up the stairs I felt this pang in my back, mentioned to Sean that it felt like a Charlie horse.  Two minutes later the pain was so bad that I was bent over and couldn’t stand up straight.  I ended up on the sofa for the rest of the day unable to sit up or stand.  Doing much better today.  I am hoping new week… new start.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  I am tired of lying around and doing nothing, going nowhere.  And my house is a mess.  It needs some serious cleaning, so I have to get to it this week.  I just can’t stand it anymore.

I haven’t been stitching much this week.  I had hope to spend the day yesterday stitching but well, the best laid plans and all.  Here is where I am now with The Library.

Ugh… The flu

I haven’t posted in a while.  While working the bookfair, my husband got sick with the flu.  I got a head cold then a UTI and now I have the flu. 

My friends and I did go to Market Day at an area LNS.  I got fabric for several upcoming projects and a couple of new patterns. I also got a thread pack for one of the designs… or so I thought.  I bought the wrong one. 

I do have some photos to share later.
