One hundred thirty

Two weeks and a total of one hundred thirty injections, later, I'm officially done with Allergy Testing! Woo-frickin'-hoo!!

Today was the worst, 42 injections. I was allergic to a bunch today, too. Dogs were most surprising. Roses were most frustrating, I have 10+ bushes at home that the previous owners planted. I was also allergic to bees, wool, crickets, alfalfa, rabbit weed and I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple others.

This whole experience has been enlightening and pretty facinating. Thursday I begin immunotherapy. I start with one shot at the office twice each week, then I think I go weekly and eventually I'll pick up doses bi-weekly. I could be wrong, but that's my current understanding. It'll become clear as I go along.

Friday, I see the ENT doctor to go over my CT Scan. Hopefully, all will look good and I can wrap up all these doctor visits.

In other news, Frank took a spill at work on Friday. He hyperextended his ankle as a result of his fall. He's on crutches, an aircast stirrup and walking boot. Needless to say we had a very quiet weekend, it was filled with rest and quite a bit of channel surfing. He seems to be healing well, hopefully, he'll be on the mend in no time.

Crickets??? They tested you for an allergy to crickets?

Hope Franks gets well soon.

They tested for a bunch of insects. I guess they are a pretty common allergen. I only tested positive for crickets and bees, at least that I recall. Thursday I should get a list of everything I tested positive for.

Thanks for the well wishes.
