Predictions, Pain, Coq Au Vin

This was our first snow this season on Oct. 24, 09.....a beautiful but heavy wet snow. Now we are predicted to get more of the same. Our entire county is under advisement. Quite frankly, I am anxious for it. Can you guess what this is? Here's a hint. I wish like the world that it was around my entire body right now to alleviate the pain I have been under since this morning. In fact, I would gladly lay in that cold snow....butt naked to ease this.
Probably this is a dead give-away. This looks like a hip and leg to me. In fact, it would partly cover one of my hurting limbs.
By now you probably wonder what has happened to cause me such agony. Well, I am having a terrible side effect to a prescribed drug. I broke out in the worse rash that has covered nearly my entire body, including inside my eyes, ears, nose, throat, bottoms of my feet....all over me is covered with rash and welts. After reading and talking with my doctor, it appears that 1-6 in 10,000 people react to this medication in this way....needless to say, I take it no more. The answer to What is it?, it's ICE. That's exactly what I'm doing, icing. It does help along with the Benedryl to alleviate the itch and the Prednizone to stop this in it's tracks.
So, for all that ales you and ME, there is always Chicken Soup. If you click on the rooster, it should enlarge the picture enough to read the recipe at the bottom....I do not know what the recipe title is, perhaps you may know, but reading the recipe, tells me it may be a stew. This stained glass graces my Mom's window. It's time I try some Coq Au Vin.
Blessings Be Yours

Hi Dar, I'm so sorry to hear of your horrible reaction. I hate prescription drugs.. Most of them cause more side effects than they do GOOD. I hope you feel better soon. I know you feel miserable.

Take care!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

HOW TERRIBLE FOR YOU! GET PLENTY OF REST, READ A BOOK, AND DRINKS LOTS OF FLUIDS. THE CHICKEN SOUP WILL HELP ALSO! HOPE YOU HAVE A SPEEDY RECOVERY. JUDY

Nothing like good old chicken soup or stew or a leg of Kentucky Fried Chicken to help you feel better.
