Ok.. I do have a good explanation for the wonderful title of this post. The other night I had a slight fever, which didn't last very long, and barely met the qualifications of a legit 'fever'. But just to be safe the doctors decided to start me on some antibiotics, one of which was vancomycin. When this lovely drug was in my iv, My head started to feel funny. I felt kind of hot, like heat was emanating off of my bald head, which was now turning pink. I felt hot, but had no temperature. The nurse came in and said I was just having a reaction, and that the color starts at your head and moves down your body. I looked in the mirror and looked like I had gone skiing with my head exposed. It was bright pink and my face was flushed red. Also, like the nurse said it was definitely moving its way down my body. My back was bright red and itchy. So this is where the title ties in, I felt like the girl that ate the blue berry on willy wonka and the chocolate factory. Except I turned red and didn't blow up like a round fruit. And my problem was easily fixed with benadryl, whereas the poor blue berry girl was less fortunate.
Things have been going good, I am feeling great, and just waiting for my counts to come back up. I am eating well, or calorie packing, as they call it up here. Trying to gain back the weight I lost on my 3 weeks of no eating. Fun fun Fun eating is something I don't mind so much, hopefully I can kick it up a notch haha
