Welcome back Chef, great to hear you are on the rebound! Was the antibiotic Cipro? I'm allergic to that crap, they said it could be fatal to ever take it again, burning rash all over. RAY
Cipro I can take. This was IV Vancomycin. Intense itchiness and skin turns a burgundy/purple color that eventually slufts off...JJ

There are a few things in life that do come with expectations of 100% perfect performance. Pilots landing a passenger plane safely for one. Another, ensuring patients are treated with correct meds. Personally I hope your daughter causes a shake up at that hospital. Meanwhile, keep doing the right things JJ and continue to get better!

That's just about exactly what happens to me if I take Cipro, the itching almost kind of burns it's so intense, not anything I ever plan to experience again. Well you are on the mend Chef, get back some strength and get out of that place. RAY

Seeing you post, Chef JJ, is a big relief. I know you're still in the woods but there are sous-angels prepping the prayers we're sending your way. Get well. You're iconic, and we like having you keep us on the road to great food.

Sure is good to "hear your voice" JJ!!!
I suspect vancomycin is a derivative of erythromycin, which has been around a long time. It's cheap to synthesize, and the patents have long run out, so usually is the first-line of defense against bacterial diseases. I'm no MD, but if your bad reactions in the past have been against erythromycin, you may want to get a lot of these derivatives added to your medical list of stuff to avoid. Not to excuse it, but I can see how mistakes like this can happen. Lot of different folks in the chain of healthcare...usually that's a blessing, but there can be curse-like consequences occasionally as you've found.
Your daughter sounds like a great health advocate for you...Good on her!
Welcome back!

Thanks Bill. I was in pretty bad shape with Pneumonia and Sepsis, then the Cure created a whole new set of issues...JJ

Funny how that old expression "the cure is worse than the disease" can still ring true today.
Glad you're back!

Thanks for the Prayers and kind words. Still feeling crappy. The combo of the pneumonia an the allergic reaction to a KNOWN Antibiotic I cant take, got me good. Makes no sense. All the checks, including verbal confirmation that I am allergic and they gave it to me anyhow. No wonder so many people have simple procedures turn into month long stays or worse...JJ
100% negligence, get an attorney JJ, make them pay your bills.
