Marge, it's so good to hear you sounding a little more upbeat! I'm sure veryone is feeling a bit more positive knowing that John might be able to go home soon--like others have said, it's so much better to rest and get strong at home. I'm still sending huge hugs and lots of love your way!

Marge, when I think back about this thread, when it all happened for John it seemed so ominous. Later things started looking good for John, and then ominous again. John has nothing but great things to look forward towards as well as you and your family. I look forward to John posting on here when he can. You and your family are always in my thougths

John went home today....He said "I wonder how long I'll be at home this time".

I didn't get to see him over the week end. I started a rash across the top of my feet Thursday and by Friday my whole body was covered to my neck and then some at my hair line. I called and then saw my Dr. He took away a couple of meds. Saturday it was really bad so I called his on call Dr. and he took me off of two more. Last night I woke myself up by clawing and drawing blood so I was up at 5 AM and was at the ER at 6 AM. The on call Dr put me on Benedrl and that was like taking nothing. He said to go to the ER if I didn't improve.
!
That was a real experience!!

I saw a very young lady Doc..She was appalled at my condition and didn't really know what to do. She put me on 3 tablets of Predisone (20mg) once a day and then Hydroxyzine 1 four times a day. It is better but feels like I was bit by a million mosquitoes instead of two zillion mosquitoes.

Seems like I have to have some sort of something going on in my life doesn't it. LOL

Whoa, Marge! Sounds as though you've had quite an adventure. Hope everything resolves itself and you are able to get back to your old self.

Suffice it to say, Buck and I have you in our thoughts and prayers.

"Heads up, dear!" Things will get better.

Love and best wishes,

Katie E and Buck

HI Marge,

So terribly sorry for what you are going through. It must be awful. Perhaps the stress from the whole ordeal has caused the itching. I had itching on my hands a few months ago, weather related, I think. I went to the drug store and bought over the counter cream that helped. It was recommended by the pharmacist.

On the good side I am happy to hear John is HOME. Is there any sweeter place to be than in your own bed, with your loved ones and your stuff to surround you? Tell him to keep looking up.

If he is interested in any nutritional tips that would help support him I would be happy to share. I am working on a MS in Holistic Nutrition degree. Just have him or a family member email me separately. I am happy to share what I have learned.

Prayers for you and your son.

Marge,
be sure to keep a check on your Blood Sugar..Prednisone will cause it to rise..Don't want you to test yourself and have a nasty shock...So glad John is back home.Let's say an extra prayer that he is home for good..

hugs,
kadesma
