Antihistamine took care of the hives, however not the intense swelling of the fingertips.
I discontinued all medications yesterday afternoon, placing a call into my Doctor's office this morning.
My Doctor's office did call me back this afternoon. Conclusion: My Doctor is changing the antibiotic medication, thinking this is what was causing all the extra discomfort. However, I am to remain on the Prednisone and continue with plenty of liquids. Maybe by tomorrow, Rob will be able to go down to our Pharmacy for the new antibiotic prescription the good Doctor has ordered for me.
The "good" is I heard from the Specialist's office this morning. I have an appointment with Dr. Mark Newton this Friday at the Owen Sound Hospital's Ambulatory Care Unit. I am anxious to go see about the results from my CT Scan, and hear his "take" on what has been going on with my lungs, as I have yet to hear anybody's "take" on what has been going on in there.
"Getting through it all"..... life does have to go on, so this morning I did make the Black Bean and Feta Salad.
"All done up ready to be refrigerated whilst the Pork Chops continue cooking in preparation for our noontime Dinner. The recipe makes a "substantial" amount, as this is in my largest Pyrex bowl."
I must say, we really did enjoy the salad, and I would think it is a "keeper" to make and serve again. Like any other marinated type salad though, I would think the flavors would be best blended the evening ahead in order to marinade further throughout the salad.
