Before dawn this morning (Thursday), I was rushed to the hospital emergency room with a severe allergic reaction to some of the medication used on me yesterday, during surgery.
It's been a scary, nerve-wracking, awful day.
I now sit with an epi-pen by my side.
The hospital wanted to admit me because they can't seem to make the reaction go away, although it is slightly (?) better than when I went in. In time, the doc agreed to let me go home but he was reluctant to put it mildly.
This isn't fun, and it IS scary.
I'll hopefully be back by Monday with regular posts.
In the meantime, expect to see short, little, updates like this.
Although, the doctors are "trying to get to the bottom of what happened," they suspect a nurse used a medication that was clearly marked on my chart as one I'm highly allergic too. In addition, it was marked on my hospital bracelet in bold letters.
I'm in bad shape and miserable.
Hope to be back to regular posts soon …..
