Reaction Update

So I went to the Dr. yesterday and they first thought it looked like a strep rash.  Negative.  It must be allergies they said.  I got a shot of steriods and a couple prescriptions.  I was told if it didn't clear up by Monday, come back for bloodwork and a referral to an allergy specialist.

I layed while Ethan was napping and tried to get some rest from the itching and swelling and when I got up the redness and rash were gone!  Praise God!  I was still swollen, but I just knew it would go away.  I watched the UK game (Go CATS!) and was disappointed in the end, but at least my face was healed, right?  Well, sort of.  I caught a glimpse of my face in the mirror and the redness and swelling were back.  Ugh. 

This morning, I'm still swollen, red, itchy and hot.  But the good news is that the rash itself is not as apparent, just redness. 

I'm so thankful for all your prayers.  Keep them coming.  I know I will be healed and soon!

Bless your heart...we suffer from asthma, eczema, allergies and the likes. I can only imagine the uncomfortable-ness you are feeling right now. I hope you get to feeling better soon.
