My face continued to swell and the redness continued to spread. As much as I resisted, I was concerned enough to make a return trip to the ER. This time we went to a different hospital just in case I would need to stay overnight. My mom thought it best to have me and Dan at least in the same hospital:).
For this visit I saw an actual doctor and she prescribed a stronger antibiotic which I am now taking along with the other antibiotic. This doctor was beautiful, I told her I loved her (yes, I really did:)) and she also emphasized the need to watch for any further swelling and spreading, telling me to come back tonight if necessary. She also told me she did not want to "cut my face", so that is enough incentive to keep a close watch and not take any chances if it looks to be getting worse.
So I am now taking two antibiotics, pain meds, anti-nausea meds and ibuprofen and I was finally able to eat something. Feeling the best I have felt in a few days, I think the food helped, and off to the hospital again tomorrow. Seems to be my new residence.
