My Mom made it through her surgery just fine. She's in a lot of pain now though. She had a block which helped for a while, but now it's effects are gone. Hopefully the pain meds she was given for after the block start to kick in very soon!

I've had an interesting two days. I woke up yesterday and felt like maybe something was off. I was a little itchy but didn't think anything of it. Then I put my contacts in and realized I was covered in red spots. And then I began to realize it was all over me. My eyes were swollen and weepy and I itched so bad. 

The doctor agreed that I have a mixture of eczema and an allergic reaction. Right now we have no idea what is causing it. I have an appointment with a dermatologist to confirm it is an allergic reaction tomorrow. It got worse over night. I'm taking Zyrtec and a little bit of benadryl here and there when it gets bad. I am also spreading anti-itch cream all over me to keep myself from scratching every inch of my body. 

I can not wait for this to be over. 

I am so lucky that it's nothing worse but man oh man being itchy is not fun. I want to jump in a giant pool of hydrocortizone, I know that sounds a little gross but I would welcome it at this point!
