I have a praise to share this morning, and it's a big one for me! I've written about the fact that I've been feeling extremely sick with what I thought were allergy symptoms since the middle of April. I kept putting off calling the doctor because I thought it would just go away on its own. But somewhere toward the middle of July it got so bad I thought Luke was going to have to drive me to the ER a few nights. I really couldn't even breathe.
Luckily I avoided having to go to the ER, but I finally made a doctor's appointment, and from there had a CT scan.
About a week ago, I had my follow-up visit from the doctor and he said I have a "smoldering" sinus infection (whatever that means! haha). So I guess it wasn't allergies after all. And I guess I should have gone to the doctor a loooong time ago!!
The best part about this news is that it means I am not allergic to Gabby and Ellie!!!!
I'm glad, because there was just no way I was going to get rid of them if they were the problem!
The other good news is that the doctor put me on prednisone and 3 weeks of antibiotics. And while I'm not enjoying the side effects of the prednisone, like feeling all swollen, being extra thirsty, and peeing 3 times every hour (tmi?), I am feeling good for the first time in 4 months!! I seriously didn't realize how much pressure I had been feeling in my sinuses for all that time, but now that it's gone, I feel so much better! And I haven't been coughing at all. Praise the Lord!
I'm so glad that I'm feeling better, that this was an easily fixable problem, and that I'm not allergic to my cats!!!
