Thanks Gretchen! Don't worry about
the link...I am a fellow techno-dummy! I just go to my husband when I need any help with the computer...which is often! I know! My PCP doctor obviously wasn't convinced either because he ordered bloodwork when I saw him for the strep throat. Of course since I was sick, my wbc was 25,000 and I haven't heard about
anything else. He gave my a Penicillin shot (along with two others...steriod and one for nausea). I haven't had a PCN shot for strep since I was a kid but I didn't care because I don't think I could have swallowed the pills anyways. They repeated some bloodwork while I was in the hospital and the wbc had started to come back down. I am pretty sure that my dr. checked my liver enzymes, but I was in so much discomfort I can't be certain. I am definitely going to have a talk to my neurologist when I see him next week. I actually was supposed to see him today for my one year f/u, but I had to push it back since I was too sick to get my MRI done last week. It seems to me that I have been sick too many times in the last 6 months to not see some correlation. Of course I am not sure where that leaves me. Won't all the drug therapies cause the same immune suppression?
Anyways, thanks for talking with me. I am praying for no more illnesses at least for the next month...my family and I are going on vacation the week of 4th of July and I just want to enjoy it! LOL...okay...guess that was a given...wanting to enjoy my vacation that is.
