Eileen had a doctor’s appointment today. She and the doctor (who is also my doctor) discussed my hives. Dr. Fuentes told Eileen that my hives couldn’t be from a drug reaction if they were persisting the way they are. She also said she couldn’t prescribe more prednisone. Dam. She gave Eileen the name of a Grand Rapids dermatologist she recommends. She thought I could get in sooner to see this doctor instead of waiting until my October appointment with a Holland dermatologist.
Googling reveals that hives lasting longer than six weeks are usually impossible to diagnose. Nice.
I am discouraged. My itching continues. I have already had one shower today. I have a bottle of aloe gel sitting next to my chair. I use it liberally. I have talked to Fuentes office as she instructed Eileen I should do. They are contacting the GR dermatologist who will call me. Bah.
This is getting old.
I met with my violinist today for some playing. That was fun. I’m still working on organizing my books and I enjoy doing that.
Eileen is off meeting with a contractor she is thinking seriously of hiring to do our doors. Tomorrow she goes to Whitehall to help care for her Mom.
I can’t find the sheet music the author of the Stewardship musical wants for this year. The tune is “This Moment in Time” as recorded by Englebert Humperdinck in 1979. This is a pain. But I have began transcribing the stupid thing.
