This is [livejournal.com profile] plumtreeblossom cross-posting to [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit's LJ, since our f'lists are not the same.

[livejournal.com profile] beowabbit is unwell right now. It began with increasing pain at the base of his skull over the past few days, limiting is mobility and and eventually eliminating his ability to drive or lay down comfortably in any position for long. When pain with swallowing became a thing yesterday morning, it was time to go to MIT Urgent Care to see a doctor.

A seed of fear had been planted in us about menengitis or other spinal/brain stem infection, but he examining doctor at MIT Medical ruled that out for now. It seems to be a serious muscle issue, possibly brought on by a too-tight CPAP mask strap, but we really just don't know how it came about. He has a bad reaction to the muscle relaxant he was prescribed (Cyclobenzaprine). It was as if he had been "roofied." A call to MIT Medical took him off that drug and onto regular Ibuprophen. Itwas a rough night, and I slept downstairs so that he could have the whole bed to find (semi) comfortable positions to lay in.

He's not well enough for visitors, but I know he would love to get messages and comments from friends. We're doing what we can to get him through this.

Oh, dear! I'm so sorry. I hope they can figure out what's going on with the 'Wabbit soon.

If the universe where a just place (and sadly, we all know that it isn't), such a sweet, kind, and generous person as [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit would never suffer from a moment's ill health. I hope this latest bout resolves quickly and completely.

*hugs* to the 'Wabbit (and to [livejournal.com profile] plumtreeblossom for her care and worry).

Oy

I hope by the time this reaches you that you are well enough not to need these good wishes.

Heal well and swiftly, old friend.
