I want to apologize for being away and I hope to get back to your regularly scheduled programming on a more consistent basis.
First off, I was hospitalized on February 25th. The diagnosis was hepatitis (liver injury) caused by an adverse, allergic reaction to Augmentin I took for a sinus infection. I had stopped the Augmentin 10 days prior so it took the experts a while to figure out the culprit. But here I am feeling much, much better. I’m working on getting my stamina back but all my liver panel tests have returned to normal and I should have no long-lasting effects.
Read this medical journal entry. It describes much of what I experienced. I did not have hives of any kind. And as stated, it can be fatal. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK548517/
I did lose my sense of time at one point. While I was heavily medicated, I was transported from the ER to a larger hospital with a GI department and where they could run further tests. Trust me, I had rather have stayed in the ER. Weeks later, I found these pictures on my phone and do not remember taking them. I also asked a good friend if she could spare part of her liver if I needed it. She was so sweet to say yes.
So, enjoy these pictures.
.There is so much more I want to share with you! Stay tuned.
