IN THE WARS.


Princess is doing well and thankyou for all of you who have been asking.
The swelling on the foot has gone down to normal and the wound is healing.

I on the other hand am in the wars.
Over the weekend I suffered from toothache from a large molar that has been giving me little niggles for a while. 
I made an emergency appointment today and it will have to come out.
He gave me some antibiotics and asked if I was allergic to them.  As it is literally years since I took any I answered no.
It's 2 o'clock in the morning as I type this post and I am covered in a really itchy rash that is driving me mad.
I'm guessing that it is the antibiotics that have done it and I'm so glad that I have only taken two of the things.
I've done a google on it and apparently it will disappear as quickly as it arrived, lets hope its correct.

What a time to have a rash..when the weather is so hot!

  1. I'm so sorry for your loss of molar and the antibiotic-induced rash. You are lucky it is minor but I'de let the doc know, just the same. I hope all heals quickly and thanks for the update on Princess.

  2. So pleased that Princess is doing well. They are very resilient. Sorry about your tooth and the reaction to the antibiotics. Hope you can get the tooth out quickly and that the reaction subsides.

  4. Oh no! From one medical issue to another. Sorry to hear about your tooth. And the rash. Our bodies change so much over the years. Hard to know what we might be allergic to at any point in time. Hope it's cleared up and the extraction goes smoothly. Take care!

  6. Oh my. Not fun at all. That happened to me once, I told the doctor I wasn't allergic to something because another doctor told me that I couldn't be allergic to pennicilin if I didn't react to something he gave me. So I started saying I wasn't allergic to anything. Wrong I was still allergic to pennicilin

  8. Oh dear, that sounds very uncomfortable. I always answer no when asked about antibiotics, not that the question comes up very often.
