Work started with an allergy shot patient having an anaphylactic reaction in the office. I'm not sure what happened. She's been getting shots for a couple of years, said she felt well prior to the shot, and correct doses were given. Sometimes it just happens. Poor thing just turned 18 and this was her first shot without a parent present. It took 2 rounds of epi, 50 mg Benadryl IM, 125 mg Solu-Medrol, and an albuterol nebulizer treatment to reverse it. She was covered in hives and had chest and throat tightness. We tend to see this more in the spring when pollen counts are high. Fortunately, she did reverse and we were able to send her home with Dad after a couple of hours. This is the reason we make patients wait in the office for 30 minutes after their shots, even though they complain about it.
Ted-that video was lovely. What a thoughtful gift for your family.
Tweety-loved your beach videos on FB. The sound of waves is so soothing. I'll be in S. Florida next month for a long weekend. I hope it's warm.
Joe-Hope you get to see J before he leaves.
Dianah-I tell fiance about your music and all the playing you do. He is completely jealous. His dream is to be a musician, but he didn't get any talent, LOL. I hope you sleep better tonight.
Stars-So glad you're getting that block. Hope it gives you major relief.
