Just when you think things are moving along fine, life throws you a curve ball. At least it did to me over a week ago.
I woke up one morning with a rash, developed a swollen lip and ended up in the emergency room. All due to some amoxicillin that I was prescribed for my root canal. I have taken amoxicillin plenty of times in the past but for whatever reason, I had reached my threshold and developed an allergy. The doc said this is a common thing for women after pregnancy. I feel like a science experiment!
I was put on Benadryl and Prednisone which completely screwed me up. I literally felt like I was taking crazy pills. After blowing through all of the breast milk I had pumped throughout my entire maternity leave and realizing that my mom, husband and bestie, Molly are lifesavers, I finally am feeling back to normal.
Just in time to pack up and take Everett for his first plane ride this Friday as we head to Washington, D.C. for a long weekend full of sightseeing and a dinner at the White House. Yep, you read that right. I will be joining my father-in-law for the National Governors Conference where I’ll have the chance to meet the President and First Lady. So excited!
