Talked to my doc yesterday- Remicade pre-meds

Well, I got a call from my GI doc yesterday, she is still concerned about the rash I had/have and isn't 100% convinced it doesn't have something to do with the Remicade.

I did tell her the rash is greatly improved, but not quite gone, and this is after I stopped using the steroid cream my Derm gave me - at least most of the time.

So, the plan for Monday (appt time 1230pm) is to get pre-meds of Benadryl and Solumedrol (steroid).....I DID remember to ask if the Benadryl would be pill or IV - and was told IV was possible, so I opted for that.....no waiting for a pill to kick in!

Looking forward to my nap time Monday! lol....
