So as you know on friday I went for allergy testing and some blood work. Today they called me and asked me to come to the office to talk with the doctor about my labs. That is never a good sign. I was pretty curious even though there were really only three options in my future. They are 1. Do nothing. 2. Allergy shots. 3. Gammaglobulin infusions.
I knew the answer could not be 1 since they wanted me to come in and talk to the doctor. Since Friday I've been thinking allergy shots for sure, considering the allergies that came back positive on friday. In case you haven't figured it out Gammaglobulin infusions are in my future. Apparently I have Hypogammaglobulinemia, which he thinks will lead to Common Variable Immunodefiency. Which is very overwhelming at the moment. It does explain a lot, more than I am willing to explain at this second.

The plan is to find out which pharmacy my insurance will pay to whip me up some gammaglobulins and visit my allergy doctor once a month for 30-45 minutes for an infusion. At this point I'm not sure how long I will have to do that. These should be starting in the next few weeks and we'll have to go from there to see if these globulins are working and doing their job.
So, how was your day?
