It annoys me to no end how many times I said the same things OVER and OVER to the NP at my ENT's office (and she's much better than the one at my primary office).
So last night I took my bath, went upstairs, yanked off the hoodie I threw on with my PJ bottoms and climbed into bed.
Got up this morning, threw the hoodie back on, got the kids up etc.....
Called to see about being seen at the ENT's office for the sinus pressure I have (that I don't normally get). Yesterday I wanted my head to just fall off when I bent over to load the washer (front load). First the receptionist told me that the Dr could see me Friday, Nov. 30 (really?????), but she would check to see if the NP would see me. So she gives me an appointment for 2:30 which means I can still help in Kinder from 1 to 2, and get my banking, library etc done after Alex gets on the bus (bad Mommy).
I go to hop in the shower, and my CHEST is covered in a rash. I have no idea from what. No new foods, no new detergents, no new shampoos, washes etc (and I Don't use anything in the bathtub anyway)... NOTHING....... No shellfish, No nuts, No Cinnamon,
So, I haven't had the sinus pressure long enough for it to be an infection. I have an RX for z-pack I can fill in 48 hrs if I am not better. Wanted to RX me for the new allergy wonder drug that came out when Zyrtec went OTC, told her I take Claratin every morning (generic).
Canceled my allergy shot for tomorrow, have to call her and let her know how the rash is looking. As by the time I was seen it was down my arm, all over my back.....
She asked me if I had been around anyone with strept (um, 5 little cherubs were missing from Kindergarten on Tuesday and 2 were missing on Friday), tells me it could be hand, foot, mouth, it could be scarlett fever. (really?)
Called John on my way home to let him know what she said. HE rolled his eyes over the phone, annoyed that I have to get to the point where I need my nebulizer because it's drifted south before I can be treated.
Then he procedes to ask me if my rash is from the cat. Um, I haven't petted him or held him since last week. Oh, but yesterday while we were out shopping a little person went into our bedroom to go to our bathroom, and must have let Saber into our room. Because when John went into our bedroom, the cat was on our bed, in my spot which wasn't made up.
So I slept (or tossed and turned) in cat dander ALL NIGHT LONG.
Came home showed my chest and back to all 5 kids. Made it clear that IF the cat gets into my room, someone old enough gets him out, OR ELSE we have to find a new home for Saber.
That didn't go over well, so I told them to keep him out of my room!
