..."I need you to take me to Urgent Care?" Yes, that was the line that ended our family dinner last night. We were at Matt's parents for his sister's birthday. As we were all sitting around the dining room table enjoying dessert, his mom walked in from the kitchen and said with a swollen tongue, "John, I need you to take me to Urgent Care?" All three kids and their dad jumped up running around to take her. I sat at the table with Matt's sister's new boyfriend who was meeting the family for the first time and said to him, "Welcome to the family! Our dinners aren't usually this exciting."

So she went to Urgent Care whiling breaking out in hives and they stablized her breathing, then took her via ambulance to the hospital. This all started at 7:30pm and by 10pm she was released from the hospital. The cause? No one knows except they think it was a food allergy. She couldn't pinpoint anything she'd eaten that she hadn't had before so she has to contact an allergist to get a test. Needless to say, it was definately an eventful night and one to remember!
