It never rains but it pours.....

Last week I had a tooth ache, go to the dentist. Xrays show that there could possibly to a bit of infection near the bottom of the root, so he gave me a Rx that I started taking last Friday. After a couple of days tooth ache was gone.
Monday, I had a rash forming on my body, to my Family Dr. I go, I have an allergic reaction to the Rx the dentist gave me. Dr. told me to get an over the counter allergy medication.
Tue, Wed, its getting worse, yesterday I go to Emergency at the hospital, given another Rx by the Dr there.
Today, I look like a red monster from outer space--I have huge red blobs all over, the skin around my eyes is swollen, I itch and feeling down right miserable. Not much sewing being done so far this week, or anything else for that matter.
Our guild makes quilts for chemo patients at our local hospital. At our October meeting we decided that if everyone made a block each month we would have 16 blocks for a quilt every month. The block that is due at the end of Nov is to be red and white, any pattern that we chose. I have the fabric cut out but that is as far as its got. I am sewing the binding on a wall hanging, and still doing some hexies. Photo's coming soon.
Today is going to be another beautiful day, I should be out picking up my leaves for the compost bin, but not in the mood. Maybe we will have a strong wind blowing soon and do the job for me.
My last posts all have mentioned the problems I am having, I think its about time for some positive words, don't you?

Have a great day.
Patricia

Hey, Patricia, we are all allowed! Besides, the Carbon monoxide post was a rather informative one, not a problem, thank the Lord! Anyway, you sound "lovely" in your new colors (yes, I'm kidding!!), I do hope you can get some answers and some healing going on soon!

I so feel your pain.....I really do being the queen of problems with my teeth!! I know how it feels, although I was lucky enough to not have an allergic reaction to the medication.

Hope things brighten up for you soon,

Poor you, you must have been feeling pretty rotten and I do hope by now things are improving. There is little worse than toothache and thankfully that has been dealt with. I think we are all allowed to have a 'wallow' sometimes and I hope you are feeling much better. Jan xx
