Lovely...

Well, I got to make a lovely little jaunt to the ER the other night.

I was at work Tuesday morning, packing meds for the girls' home passes & decided to pop a couple of multi-vitamins as I had forgotten mine at home. Ten minutes later, I noticed my arms were bright red & starting to burn. Itching started in & then it started spreading to my hands & up toward my shoulders. Took several Benadryl & waited to see what would happen. I eventually called the ER & then my boss & the Mothership as my throat was starting to constrict. I kinda figured that wasn't good. By the time I got to the ER the redness & burning was gone but my throat was still feeling tight. The doc said I caught it in time with the Benadryl but we have no idea what the reaction was to. Spent the rest of that night & the next one in a Benadryl fog & nursing a rough throat.

Went for my consultation with the sleep specialist yesterday & have free samples of Requip - for Restless Leg Syndrome - and an appointment for a sleep study early next month. Guess we'll see how that goes...

I called Viking Dad to see if he could take Rumsfeld out since we were in Wichita a lot longer than planned. He called me later to say that the dog must be hollow as he had peed & peed. I asked if he was still going & about died of laughter when I heard "No - he's taking a dump the size of my truck!" Hey, he's a big dog, he can't help it. Dad keeps saying I should've gotten a chihuahua. I always reply with "I wanted a dog, not a noisy little rat."

I hope you're felling better! It soulds like a scary experience, glad you didn't blow up like a puffer fish and pop! Feeling better yet?

Thanks. I'm fine - just annoyed that I had to go to the ER at all. And me popping would've been a wee bit messy... Ick.
