I wish that this post had some kind of theme, but it's completely random.
We have learned that somebody's ticklish!
In other news, I went to the ER twice in two days. On Friday afternoon I noticed that my kneecaps were red and they felt incredibly bruised (for no apparent reason). As the day progressed, the redness and swelling showed up in random blotches on my body: the palms of my hands, my right ear, the back of my knees, my right elbow, etc. By Saturday, I was in pain because the blotches were everywhere and they were very swollen! It was clear that I was having an allergic reaction to something, but I had no idea what. So... off to the Emergency Room we went! I was prescribed an oral steroid and a cream to put on the spots.
(These pictures don't even BEGIN to depict these blotches)
The next morning things seemed to be better, but as I sat through church, they started showing up again and it progressed more quickly! So... back to the Emergency Room we went! I received 2 shots in the backside (OUCH!!!!), and 2 stronger oral steroids. Today I felt much better but the spots are still randomly showing up, then disappearing. I'm about 95% sure that I'm allergic to Gain laundry detergent. I switched to that about 2 weeks ago and I think it just took awhile for it to catch up with me. Now I get to re-wash absolutely everything in my house! The weirdest part of it all is that I'll start breaking out in places that never touch the laundry detergent, like my scalp or my bottom lip. I just hope my prediction is right!
