WEEK CONT'd.

No pics today but did want to tell you about Wednesday.  Well Tuesday with all the goodies to eat I could not have a thing except black coffee because that afternoon I had to do the prep for a colonoscopy,  If you have had one you know what that is like.  That is all I will say about Tues.  Wed. morning we trot off to Alexian Bros. Hospital for Dr. Sales to do his thing.  This is the easy part of the whole thing.  All went well and the results were perfect, - no polyps and I can now go 3 years until the next one.  Due to the early cancer 3 years ago I had one after 1 year, then after 2 years from then and now 3.  We left and drove home and I felt fine until I started to eat lunch.  Then I started to sneeze and my nose started to run.  This kept on all afternoon and all evening.  One of the last things when we were leaving the nurse said no antihistamines at all for 24 hours.  Okay.
Well I woke up thurs. and finally took a Claritin-D and that helped except I still kept  sneezing and blowing.  The nurse called from the hospital and said did I feel okay and had I any problems.  Well no physical except for the S & B.  She said it sounded like a severe allergic reaction to something.  Not the meds or it would be different.  She thought it might have been from the sheets, blankets, etc. and the laundry detergent they used.  She said she would make a note of and see if anyone else had the same problem.  I have kept taking Claritin D and it kept S & B until today it seems to have subsided.  Very strange.  Next time maybe I should bring my own sheets.

Bad enough to have a colonoscopy without having to end up with an allergic reaction! Wonder if it could have anything to do with the pre-test 'cleaner'...maybe you have an allergy to that? Maybe the hospital uses bleach in their sheets - or a heavy type of detergent? Glad you're feeling better anyway and that you don't have to endure another of those tests for awhile!

Glad the results were good but what a pity you had to have that allergic reaction. I hope that you are feeling better by now.

Too bad your doctor doesn't make house calls.

Good news on the positive results.

I am so thankful you had a clean bill of health...except for the strange S & B reaction. I am very behind due to extended company. Hope you are feeling completely well by now. Healing energy dear...
