    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.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    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.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!

    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!!

    He seems in good spirits

    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.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    I'm glad his girlfriend is a nurse I was worried about him going home alone, maybe she will hang out with him.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Hugs,
