So I'm in the hospital. I've been here since yesterday and I'm going to be here for the next 2 or 3 days. I will be fine, but what happened to me was really scary. I've been taking antibiotics for having two ear infections and I had an adverse reaction to the drug seven days in to the course. Purple freckles on my face, arms, legs, spontaneous bleeding causing random bruises, constant nosebleeds, and raised red fragile pockets of blood in my mouth and on my tongue. I look like a character from a horror film. It turns out that I'm allergic to some of the chemicals in that antibiotic. I also found out that my blood type is AB+, one of the more rare blood types. The doctors have taken so much blood from me. Yesterday was traumatizing. They thought at first I had some super rare syndrome and my first doctor brought in all his buddies to show me off. It was terrible.
Anyway what really happened was that the drugs I took for the ear infections caused antibodies that attacked my blood platelets and reduced them to zero. Without platelets I can't clot my blood and all this freaky stuff happens. I'll be in the hospital until I reach about 10,000-50,000 platelets.
I missed my favorite holiday and I had a really cool costume that I wanted to show off in town. I made a pretty awesome Beetlejuice sand-worm costume. But I have one for next year!
Love ya DA
