In the ER after a mysterious allergic reaction that made her lips twice their normal size.

L has recently been allergy tested, and the results came back 100% negative. Which is ironic, because last night she had a major allergic reaction to who-knows-what, and I ended up at the E.R. until nearly 2:00AM. Her lips swelled, her throat itched, her tongue went numb. Some IV Benadryl and Prednisone did the trick, and they finally sent us home.

Sometime during the night, she returned Angelina Jolie’s lips to their rightful owner. She felt fine this morning. But boy, I was tired.

  1. Did they figure out what she reacted to? And I hope this isn’t too nosy, but where the hell was J???

    Glad to hear she’s fine now.

    • No, we don’t know what she reacted to. She’d just eaten a CPK pizza that she’s eaten a hundred times before. She was also taken amoxycillin, but had been on that for three days already, and has also taken it previously. It’s a mystery.

      As for J, he took her to the ER and I relieved him at 10PM so he could sleep, as he had to get up for work at sparrow fart the next day.
