A not so random blip

Okay, so remember not too long ago when I got bronchitis and then had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic? Well, this past week I got strep throat. And had an allergic reaction to the new antibiotic! Only this time it's ten times worse, and I'm miserably itchy. I stopped the medicine yesterday morning, but the rash has gotten worse today and just about become one huge red mark, so I'm thinking it might be something other than the antibiotic. I've been keeping plenty of Benadryl in me, but so far it's only good for making me sleepy, which is fine, because I don't notice the itchiness when I'm sleeping.

So I'm not taking any antibiotic now, and I still have strep. My fever is still down, so that's good, but my throat still hurts. I wish there were some way I could flush whatever stuff is in me out...maybe I need a sauna to sweat it out. Or even leaches. Hm....

On the brighter side of things, our A/C went out. Yeah, okay, that's not so bright. BUT the landlord is finally biting the bullet and getting a new air conditioner! Hooray! The A/C goes out every summer, so I'll be glad to have some more reliability--and hopefully more efficiency, too!

  1. I think that comment is from John, and he stole it from me! Yup, you need a vacation! A little beach breeze outta do the trick. (Man, I hope there's at least some breeze, ya know?)

  2. Oh my gosh. Just rediculous! Sorry about the allergic reaction. Maybe you need to do an allergy test? And HOORAY for the new a/c...and boo in the meantime. I would let you come over here, but you have germs! ;)

  4. Aww you poor you!!! That really stinks! Can Caleb cook you food and take care of you now while you are drooling on the couch full of Benadryl? And woah, the AC...I know...ours went out last week (another blog entry) and it was like an oven. Miserable. I glad your landlord is shelling out the dough, though. Get well soon, friend!!
