    :groan:Good grief.. I wish you could get a reprieve on Something while you go through this process.
    I think you have had every ill effect you can have as you have been fighting this infection!:blackcloud:
    So sorry you are miserable.
    All I can do is sympathize and keep up the prayers for this to be the beginning of the end to your complications.:praying:
    Hang in there friend (not that you have alot of choices)

    Sorry to hear you have yet another problem @Fractured. I take an antihistamine (Actifed) every night without incident. Perhaps you should change from Benadryl? Best wishes. :fingersx:

    Only two days to go. Yippy Skippy. :happydance:
    I must say it's admirable how you take the time to support others
    in the midst of your own trials. Checking in on them, offering encouragement.
    I don't know that I'd be as upbeat as you seem to be. It's inspiring.
    Hope you're having a good weekend so far.

    Good luck on Monday, @Fractured. We here on the Bonesmart forum are with you 100%. Wishing you a great outcome and a hip that serves you for many, many years. I'm impressed that you remembered to give your wife flowers on Thursday in the midst of your own challenges. (I think it was you.) So sweet and loving.
