Spent the day in the ER

DD's hives went from bad to worse and this morning when she woke her ankles, elbows and hands were swollen and blue. And the hives were all swollen and angry-looking and strung together so they were like one big mass in some places. So we went to the doc again, and she could not figure if it was Lyme disease or an allergic reaction to the amoxycillin. So she sent me to the ER (an hour away in good traffic) and we got some more advice. And a new antibiotic, because they believe it is Lyme disease - even had an infectious disease guy consult. AND they also think she is reacting to one of the meds on top of it. So tomorrow we go to an immunologist/allergist who is supposed to be the best around for another consult and we'll take it from there. DD was a real trooper, we got home around 7pm and that's when she finally fell'll continue the updates to this little saga tomorrow. I am beat.

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this. That's just terrible!

I hope the doctors get things figured out quickly and she can start feeling better.

Hang in there -- both of you.
