Back from the doctors

Wow, two posts in one day! I just got back from the doctors though, and thought I should post about it. He made sure that I knew he called in my prescription for my cough medicine, and he took a look at me. It seems I’m still all congested, and have a lot of fluid in my ears again. No shock considering how crappy I’ve been feeling! So he has also put me on an antihistomine/decongestant medication.
The latest diagnosis is that this asthma attack has been triggered by allergies after I told him how badly I reacted to the allergy testing on Friday. He was surprised to hear that the allergist didn’t want to go near me with allergy shots. He said that extreme reaction is very rare and he’s only had an allergist say that in a very small number of cases. He believes that the only reason I didn’t react to dog dannder is because of having my guide dog. Dr. Jacson thinks that my boy Baskin has taken care of immunizing me against dog allergies. 🙂 Which I’m greatful for as I would hate having to consider not having another guide dog after him.
According to the doctor my lungs are still sounding like they are moving air good. So he thinks that the antihistamine should help a lot as well. He also wrote a note for me to get to my professors somehow, to excuse me from classes for what remains of the semester because I’m still supposed to continue resting and relaxing to help me recover. Dr. Jacson was very happy to hear that the allergist gave us information on how to allergy proof the house, and that we are already taking those steps.
Thanks so much to everyone who has been reading my blog so far, and if you haven’t subscribed to follow my blog yet, please do! 😀 If you have any suggestions of topics I should talk about let me know. That includes answering any questions you might have about blindness, accessibility, tech for the blind, and guide dogs. 🙂 I know so far most posts are about my health stuff, but I’m not going to be limiting my blog just to that. 😛 Because that would be boring! Post comments, and likes please. 🙂 Thanks and talk to you all later
