Diflucan update #2



UGH - here is a short video clip of a recent foot bath...  gross...  and notably thicker and denser than in baths prior to Diflucan treatment.  This video clip is from week 3 of treatment. 


Update on die-off: 


Apparently, according to her doctor, her reactions to Diflucan seem to be mild die-off symptoms.  He renewed her script and we are continuing on for another month! 


Things we've seen:

For a few days she appeared itchy, scratching often behind her right ear but there was nothing there... thankfully that side effect passed quickly and she no longer scratches there.  From what I've been told, yeast die-off feels like bugs under your skin...


Also she vomited 2ce this past Sunday.  When cleaning up after her, I took the mat outside to spray it with the hose. Later I saw remaining frothy yeast-lookin' stuff in our grass UGH..........................  It is coming out of her feet via foot baths (see video clip above) and also exiting via her digestive system.  


We filled and tossed around water balloons yesterday.  When I told her not to throw one but follow me to the front yard, she asked me stiffly, "Where are we going?"   So simple.  So new.  She's NEVER asked me that question before, ever.  Who knows what to attribute it to -- just making a record here. 


This morning, my husband and I found her on the couch, reading a book.  It's been a long time since she's done that on her own. When she was little she used to "stim" by flipping back and forth through a book's pages, but today, she was reading aloud.  WOW.  Again, dunno why, just noting.  


Stay tuned...
