Is no fun when it's happening to you. This morning, I began itching a bit. Now I have large welty-things on my chest, down my arms, my stomach and especially my upper thighs. The pic doesn't show it, but it's very puffy. I have already had the measles, so it can't be that. Ditto for chicken pox. I have called the surgeon's office and they are telling me, oh, you just probably react badly to the alcohol you're using for the pain. That, or to raspberries, because those are the only two things that are different in this past week. (Before you ask, yes, our laundry detergent is the super non-allergenic stuff.) I've taken two doses of Benadryl and it isn't getting any better. Thankfully, my pain is greatly lessened over the last day. I've been very careful not to do too much 'round the house in case that is contributing to the pain. I am thankful for all the people who prayed for me in church on Sunday, and for my pastor praying for me today. The pain is a bit less and I'm praying mostly now for the ITCHING and redness to stop and for healing so I can get back to actually being a wife and mother again.
