My hands are less Mickey Mouse in size...  
...which is a great thing! The swelling went down and my hands are back to looking pretty normal. I went to see my primary care physician today and told him the long story. He was as perplexed as the doctor in the clinic, but because he hadn't seen how severe it had been, he didn't see the need for a blood test, etc. He checked my breathing, and my glands, and all my other vitals and said that it looked like whatever it was had already left my system. He told me that if I notice anything like difficulty in breathing, or a return of the swelling to call him immediately.

I wanted to thank you all for your supportive messages in my last post! I appreciate it more than you'll know! Big HUGS to all of you!!

BIG boss found out about all of this from the speaker at the seminar that I attended for my reps in Maui and he called me and told me to take tomorrow off too. I told him I felt MUCH better, but he told me that I should take the extra day (tomorrow) more for my sanity than anything else. Which I appreciated. The thing about my BIG boss is that he might yell and say hurtful things sometimes, but deep down inside he's a good person and at times like this, I know why I'm still working there and I go in everyday and give my 100%.

On a totally unrelated note... Adam Lambert on AI... He absolutely KILLED it tonight! :) But I had no doubt in my mind that he wouldn't... The thing is as good as he was tonight, it wasn't half as amazing as his performance in Valley Musical Theatre's Fractured Broadway concert in 2005 (Oooops! It was 2006 - I actually posted photos in my old entry...) when he sang "I Am Changing." Good Lord. That performance gave me goosebumps - seriously... And only he can make me watch a show I absolutely despise!

But enough of that... Thanks again to everyone for your supportive comments - they really must've worked because I feel a great deal better today! HUGS!!!

That's really great! It's awesome that you have a boss that is understanding and wants you at your best. Take that extra day and enjoy it! :)

He's usually pretty intense... but when he shows his human side, he's an extremely caring man. :)

I just now read about your ordeal with your allergic reaction. Sorry I didn't read it sooner. I am glad it wasn't more serious and that you are OK. That's really, really scary!

It was pretty scary - and other things happened during the weekend too that I think all started catching up with me,... It's a good thing my BIG boss let me take some time off for my sanity - I think I really need it.

I am glad you were able to take a day to just decompress. It was wonderful of your boss to insist that you do that. I hope your day has been a nice one for you.

Glad you are feeling better and that the boss gave you an extra day to relax. :)

Thanks so much! I kept telling my boss that I felt MUCH better, but he insisted I not show up. I'm VERY ready to go back to work tomorrow, though!

Thanks so much, Marla!! :) And Adam... I still can't believe he's on AI! It's been about five years since I've seen him onstage (in 10Com with Kevin) but I still remember thinking even back then that he was INCREDIBLY talented (and a very nice guy).
UnderWorldFayunderworldfairy on March 11th, 2009 07:44 pm (UTC)
yeah adam was awesome in wicked when i saw it... as soon as i saw him on idol i recognized him too lol (and thats saying something since im not hugely into the theater)

Awwww! You saw him in WICKED! :) I'd always wanted to see him go on as Fiyero, but whenever he would announce that he was in, I was never in town! :( My friend Bobbie is a HUGE fan of his and I'll never forget how shy and humbled he was when I introduced her to him at the VMT benefit concert as one of his biggest fans. I wish him well!

I'm glad you're better - I didn't see either post until today.

Your reaction reminds me of the day I became sensitive to to penicillin, though it was ingested, of course - swollen, itchy hands, blotchy skin, etc. I took Benadryl and albuterol (my throat had started to feel a little tight and I'm asthmatic so I gave it a whirl), and started to feel better on my way to the doctor's office, but I was scared for a bit there, and I bet you were too.

Very glad it's all cleared up. It does sound likely that it was related to the paper, but it may not have been intentional. That said, if the guy really weirded you out, did you contact the local police with your concern?
Sheri: Sheri Mangashutterbug93 on March 12th, 2009 07:41 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment, Robin! The doctor at the clinic gave me two shots, Benadryl and something else... but it worked pretty quickly - thank goodness. Thankfully there was a clinic next door to the bank!

And I'm not too sure it was the paper and since I left it at the store, I have no proof of anything, but it sure did seem odd that the reaction began about 5-10 minutes after I had been holding on to it. :P

Thanks again for your comment!!

I did read it yesterday - unfortunately my computer decided to stop working when I tried to post a comment but I still would like to tell you that I'm happy to hear that you are feeling better again. It truly made my day when I got to know it. Big hugs to you, Sheri!
