Just having a diagnosis is a huge relief. And then to have hem say, "should be over this in 48 hours," WOW! Bet you both slept well overnight with all the tension released.
You and your son will continue to be in my prayers.
All things work together for good to them that love God.
I've been defrosted-- Thanks, Sana
What a total nightmare for both you and your son.
I'll be keeping you both in my prayers.
I'm with the medical folks on this one. He's young and in good health overall, and the hospital is no place for someone like that to be. Patients in the hospital these days are so sick and there are resistant bugs all over the place.Originally Posted by caseysmom
I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!
Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

I sure hope you have news that he is feeling better today. I too, am glad that he is home and out of the hospital.
Sorry I saw this so late. What a scary thing!!
I am so glad they can treat it. I hope he is much better by now.
but he isn't feeling any better and hasn't really made any progress. I asked how he's feeling and he said "No better but no worse". I guess once the Prednisone kicks in he'll start feeling better but it hasn't been 24 hours yet. His girlfriend is a nurse and she went w/him to the second dr. today and the dr. told him that it is indeed viral myositis and not chronic because it came on so fast and he had that sinus infection previously. He said that some people take longer than others to get over it. He's upset because he still can't do much. He showered today but he couldn't reach up to wash his hair. And he has gigs this weekend that he's going to have to cancel. Plus he's really bummed out that he might miss the Superbowl party at his friend's house. He said "I'm really not looking forward to sitting here all day by myself." So, all I can do is what I've been doing: first, last and always, pray.
"Time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all." Ecclesiastes 9:11
It sucks to be sick. I hope he can begin to feel better SOON!!!!
I'm glad his girlfriend is a nurse I was worried about him going home alone, maybe she will hang out with him.
don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....
I have been frosted!
Thanks Kfamr for the signature!
More prayers and good wishes and healing energies coming to you and your son, Mary. I'm so glad that they've figured out what is going on and are treating it. Hope he has a quick, complete recovery.
I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).

That's right...myositis, we didn't even think of that. Glad it's only viral, better than if it was caused by immune system. Tell your son to relax and be grateful that he'll get better with hopefully no lasting effects. What a scare you must have had, so glad it's nothing more serious.
Mary, I'm sorry I have not posted until now - that blasted W-U-R-K keeps getting in the way. I have been praying for your son and sending out good vibes. I'm glad that it's something that can be "fixed" and I pray that he will be back to normal as soon as possible.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

Whatever it was that my dad had, it lasted for months, but maybe that is because no one knew what it was, and they live in a small, small, country town in PA. They also wanted to make sure it didn't affect his heart. He was out of commission for about 6 months total. Hope your son heals quicker than my dad.Originally Posted by Medusa

How scary this all must have been for both you and your son. I'm relieved that they know what is going on but I'm sure until things have cleared up and he is back to normal, you're probably going to be anxious. I would be too.
I hope that his girlfriend will spend the next few days with him as she will know if he needs any immediate medical attention. Hope things get better with each day.
I am just now seeing this thread and how relieved I was to get to the diagnosis! This has to have been so very scary! I was just trying to imagine how I would feel not being able to lift my arms above my waist! Bless his heart! I'm surprised he was calm enough to drive to the ER!
I hope that the symptoms will start subsiding soon!
