I think maybe I have had the worst week ever. It's actually kinda hard to believe it all happened! Just having really bad luck, I guess. Here it goes in order:

Wed AM 3/20  Accident at work - torn tendon in my forearm and mild concussion (ER visit).

Sun PM 3/24  Bad stomach bug - ER visit due to severe dehydration.

Tues AM 3/26  Followed up with GI dr in the morning - Rx'd antibiotics due to suspected enteritis.

Tues PM 3/26  ER visit due to worsening symptoms, increasing fever - CT scan confirmed infection in small intestine.

Wed PM 3/27  ER visit due to allergic (anaphylactic) reaction to antibiotics (sulfa drugs). Given steroids (40mg prednisone twice a day) to treat allergic reaction.

Thurs AM 3/28 Bad reaction to steroids (violent mood swings and heart palpitations).

Fri PM 3/29 Find a lump in my right breast.

Sat AM 3/30 Worsening tummy symptoms. Dr sends me to the lab to do stool sample. (lots of fun with one arm)

Four ER visits in one week!!! I sure hope my luck changes soon. This is all pretty overwhelming. :(

Oh Sherri you poor thing!  I can't believe all that has happened to one person in such a short time.  I'm so sorry to hear what a rough time you are going through and hope good things start coming your way a.s.a.p

What is the status of the lump in your breast?  Has someone had a look at it??    I'm praying that it's nothing bad and just one of those benign lumps that can sometimes appear for no reason xx

Thanks, sweetie. I actually just found the lump last night. So will have to wait until Mon to call my dr and get in for a mammogram. (which I've been blowing off for a year or two now) :( Praying it's benign.

Hope you're feeling well! Can't wait to know the sex!!!! xx

Oh how awful! I hope everything is ok now and now things will be boring!

by Sherri90049, Mar 30, 2013
I wish it was. :( Thanks, though.

Is it close to your AF time? I know a friend who discovered a lump and went to the Dr and her AF was due any day and the Dr said you could get cysts close to AF. Don't know much more about it, sorry!

I hope things get much better fast!!!

Sorry you've been so sick.  Hope you start feeling better soon!

Haven't seen AF in about 9 months, although it does still feel like my body is trying to have cycles. I did just start Fertil-Aid and OvaBoost, so maybe it is something hormonal causing the lump. That would be the best news ever if AF ever decided to show up again. :)

Thanks girls! Coming on here cheers me up and makes me (temporarily) forget how bad I feel! I love that there are so many ladies who have been successful lately! Love you all!!! xo

Sherri, bless your heart! :(  I'm sorry to hear everything going on.  Saying prayers that all these bad things go away, praying things are good with your mammogram and praying you get back to your ol self soon!!  Sending big hugs!!

aww I hope things turn around for you soon . I'll pray for a speedy recovery!! I'm so sorry that is a lot of er visits in a week !!

by Sherri90049, Mar 30, 2013
Thanks ladies! I do appreciate it very much! Hoping the newest antibiotics I started earlier today will start working in the next day or two.

Man Sherri, you have had a lot going on! Wow!!!  I sure hope you start feeling better, and that you find out the lump is nothin!!  I give you tons of kudos for doing your monthly check! I am soooo bad about that :(.  Anyway,  I am thinking about you and hope for nothing but wonderful things to come!!  

by Sherri90049, Mar 31, 2013
Thanks Mel. But truth be told, I don't do monthly checks. The only reason I found it was because my left arm is in a sling so hand is right on my breast basically. So I found it by accident. But I am going to be way better from now on. We all should be. It's so important! In my family, my aunt and grandmother died of breast cancer. :(

by mhv, Mar 31, 2013
I know :(. My birth mom and birth aunt both had breast cancer.  Cued now, but none the less.  Yes, you are right!  We need to be advocate for ourselves.  Let us know what you find out. Ok?

by Helen72, Mar 31, 2013
I am so sorry, that sounds like all bad luck week.  I hope you feel better soon and the lump is nothing serious.

OMG i hope this is one of those stories where all of this meant something and it changed your life or saved your life. I had lump too last month it was a cyst. Then I burnt my forearm from wrist to elbow with boiling water. Allergy tests last week too I am allergic to Cipro. Good luck honey

by Sherri90049, Mar 31, 2013
Thanks so much! Feeling a tiny bit better. We'll see how I feel in the morning. Have to go to work no matter what. Hope everyone had a nice Easter!

Hi Sherri
Gosh it sounds like have had a shocker of a week!!! I am really hoping April is a brighter month for you in every way.. Lumps in the breast can be very scary so I hope its nothing to worry about. Someone told me once that things get worse before they get better.. so you have had your worse and it can only get Better!! x

I have several lumps that are mobile so they are nothing but cysts.  Freaks me out so much so I go for an exam every year though.  Hope things work out for you and you are feeling better soon!

by Ecologic, Apr 01, 2013
I hope your lump is nothing!! Do you go for yearly exams?

by rmmoye, Apr 01, 2013
