We're going for a record!

As I've blogged about before, in the 3.5 years we've been married, we've dealt with a lot of medical issues with us and with our immediate families. In fact, in under 3 years, we've either been in ourselves or visited immediate family members in 12 different area hospitals. 12!

Well, make that 13.... Glenn was rushed to the hospital yesterday after a suspected allergic reaction to his chinese food lunch. I'll spare you all the details, but, in short, the inside of his cheek started to swell and then burst...OK, enough said.

Anyway, they don't believe it was an allergic reaction. They think it was either a small ulcer or blood blister that got aggravated and filled up quickly with blood because he's on blood thinners. He still has a huge growth on the inside of his cheek and is seeing an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor today to decide what needs to be done about it.

So, all, hopefully, is OK, but, after all we've been through, well, you can only imagine what I felt when I got that call from Glenn's office telling me he'd been taken to the hospital.....

Glenn joked yesterday that, if Guinness has a record for visiting different hospitals, we could be in the running!

YIKES! Does not sound like fun! Hope he heals quickly, I cannot imagine how uncomfortable it must be to eat. :(

Wow! Hope he does better.

My husband has been in 8 different hospitals just himself...so I might give you a little run for the money on that record. :)

Jason and I have been together for 11 years - I've had 18 hospital visits for him alone! Make that 19 - we had one last week - but now I send him to the ER on his own or with a neighbor.

I hope Glenn is feeling better!

Oh man....hope his cheek clears up quick. What a joke (after it all passes) you could have about chinese food.
