Leavin' 'Nawlins

M had a conference to attend in New Orleans, so I tagged along, and got in a visit with my sister. It had the makings of a great mini-vacation, but the night before we left, I broke out in hives. No problem, I had started on a new medicine a couple days earlier, so I figured it was an allergic reaction and stopped taking the meds. The first day I woke up in New Orleans, I had a cold. So 6 days later, I still have my cold, and I still have hives. I have been popping anti-histamines and cold meds round the clock and am still not better. I will call the doctor first thing Monday and hope for the best.

There's some nasty bugs doing the rounds on both sides of the pond it seems. People at work have been dropping like flies.

Get better soon!

Thanks CK. I just read that viruses, like the common cold can trigger hives. I never knew that.

Oops I did it again

Getting it short in anticipation of warm weather and more jogging, it grows fast and will be long again by next winter.
