My best friend Ana came again last night, yep, Anaphylaxis.
Get this, I took the kids to the local university pool and there were a group of young men swimming who were highly cologned up. Even after a couple hours of swimming, these guys STILL reeked of cologne.
Sure enough, I had gotten enough exposure to trigger a reaction. Thankfully, I was able to get the kids to a friend’s house before things got out of control and then called 911.
The good news, when I was in the ICU last month we came up with a very effective treatment. Racemic Epinepherine rocks! It only took about a 15 minute nebulizer treatment with the Racemic Epinepherine to reverse the swelling of my throat. That is the most effective treatment yet!
We are heading in the right direction with that. (Well, I also had Zyrtec/Claritin/Singulaire/Advair/Epipen/SQ epi/IV Benadryl/IV steroid onboard, but it absolutely was the Racemic Epi that did the trick.)
Well, other good news… I have an appointment at the Mayo Clinic in MN next month. After an entire year of this nonsense, I am more than ready for a second opinion.
They have some docs who specialize in anaphylaxis, plus they are a renowned institution. The appointment will take 3-5 days, with a hotel stay at night.
If you think of it, please pray for wisdom for my doctors. How wonderful it would be to return to good health!!!
Tomorrow night is my Valentine’s treat…yep Firehubby got me tickets to Keith Urban and Sugarland and it is tomorrow!
This is is another option...
But, I do have more fashion choices thanks to the swine flu...
Or, people may just think I am doing a tribute to Michael Jackson...
What look do you like best for my date night with Firehubby?
