Pre Superbowl Party

We have have plans to go and hang out with Norm and Deb and their grand kids for a Pre Superbowl Party tonight.  We never watch the Superbowl really, but we love to get together and the Superbowl was on a Sunday this year, so we just decided to get together on the day before and just play games and eat lots of food 🙂

But my headache continues, so I decided to take Vicodin because I know that it has always been good in the past and the Tylenol 3 wasn’t really working.  On the drive over to Norm and Deb’s I was so nauseous.  Apparently Vicodin was not a good choice.  So for the first hour of the party I didn’t fell very well.  Luckily I had Zofran for nausea in my purse.  My headache finally got a bit better, or I just stopped caring about it and we had a great time.

Urgent Care Visit #2

Headaches sure can be debilitating:(. Home today after a 3 day battle with a headache caused from work  stuff. Physically not stress caused. But a headache nonetheless. My brain feels like it is swelling. I am
ready to just be better and healthy!!

Chiropractor or Urgent care?!?! I called our chiropractor and they’re not open so I decided that the unusual nature of headache will land me in urgent care. So much has happened in the last week that I just wanted to make sure this wasn’t from meds, alleIMG_3986rgic reaction and more drugs. No relief by any meds or Dan adjusting me for 4 days. The swelling is all encompassing in my face, head and down my spine. So could be out of alignment could, be anything. Ugh!

So I went to Urgent care and the doctor pretty much just prescribed me Toradol in pill form (which didn’t do anything) and said t
o take Benedryl.  When that didn’t seem to do anything for the headache, I called back into the Urgent Care and they prescribed me Tylenol 3 with Codeine.  The doctor at the Urgent Care also said it might also be helpful to go to the chiropractor, so I found one in town that was open and went straight there.  That didn’t seem to help either. So I’ll just keep taking the Tylenol 3.

Prednisone

Getting ready for the Winter Invitational 2015 in Charlotte. Go Tiger Sharks!!!  Loving being a swim mom! I had fun today helping at the swim meet and Josiah did so great.

So glad both of my boys are loving swimming!!

I got to feel the full effects of Prednisone today and thank goodness for it.  I was running around like a crazy person at the swim meet, the fogginess was completely gone and so is any sign of the migraine.  I felt euphoric, like I was floating on a cloud!

Migraines Suck

Migraines suck! I woke with a migraine, took some meds and went back to sleep. Finally coming out of it now but man was it a doozy. Luckily I had enough sense to take Excedrin when I woke up with it. When I woke up, I thought I could head to work because the migraine had subsided, but I haven’t had one in so long that I completely forgot about the crazy fog/haze that remains for some time.  I think I have taken so many drugs this week with the allergic reaction that my body is just a mess.

Ugh! I did read that the steroid I am on from the allergic reaction is often prescribed for migraines…so I am going to go take it and see if it will lift this haze!

So apparently some of the super fun side effects of Prednisone can explain the crappy couple if days I’ve had. Trouble sleeping, heart burn, blurred vision, nausea, the awful migraine like headache this morning and the foggy feeling for the rest of the day. I am like a textbook of side effects. My family is ready to have me back and able to function again and I am ready to be back. I could use some prayers in general but especially tomorrow morning when I am working at Josiah’s swim meet.
