Wow! Thank you all so much for all the prayers and kind words through your comments. It seems like there are so many people that have experienced allergic reactions in some form, so you know how scary it really is!
I didn't want to keep anyone hanging on how Colt is doing. The Dr. gave him a Prednisone Pack and a couple more types of itching meds. He came home (and stayed home from work, I might add) and took a long nap while Joy and I were at stage rehearsal. When I got home, he called me and showed me that he was broken out again in hives. This time they were more just on the trunk of his body, but he had just taken a hot shower. That really is not a good idea when you're itching. I gave him some Aveeno (Oatmeal Bath) and he took one of those in cool water. That relieved alot of the itching and helped the hives. And by this point, I brought home his meds from the pharmacy. All of those things combined, helped tremendously! I believe he actually got a good night's sleep. We ALL got a good night's sleep. And so far today, all is pretty well. He is still itching with some hives on his wrists and feet, but for the most part is SO much better. He is going into work this evening for a short shift, but taking his meds with him.
I really, really appreciate all the prayers and concern! Thank you so much!
And Carmen C.....I want you to know that I prayed and am praying for your son! Appendicitis had to be a scary thing too! I hope your son gets out of the hospital soon! I'll be thinking of you this evening!
Hugs and blessings to you all!
