First of all, I'd like to give a big shout-out to my wonderful in-laws who came to stay with us for a couple of days! It was great to have them here...and it was good timing, too.
Why, you ask? Because I had an allergic reaction to something on Friday night and had to make a trip to the ER to get checked out. It was comforting to know that, while I was swelling and itching and looking more like the Elephant Man by the minute, the grandparents were here to keep the kids calm and get them settled down for the night.
As it turns out, they take allergic reactions pretty seriously at the hospital, especially when your face is swelling. My airway remained clear (thank you, Lord), so all that was needed was several IV medications, including high-powered antihistamines and such, and observation to make sure the reaction didn't continue to worsen. I was released at about 2 a.m. with several prescriptions for steroids and antihistamines to be taken for a few days.
Anyway, I seem to be relatively normal again (debatable, to those who know me). It's still a bit of a mystery what I was allergic to, but it's possible that Annie will have to find a new dog shampoo. Before you ask, I did NOT use the shampoo on myself! In fact, I wasn't even the one who bathed the dog, though I did pet the wet dog and clean up the messy bathroom afterward.
Enough about me...what's going on in your life? I'd love to read some comments, and seriously, don't you have something better than my Elephant Man story to share?
P.S. Sorry, no photos of me :).
