Zack called and is feeling much better. They kept him in the ER for an hour, treating him for an unknown allergy. He is taking two different kinds of meds and is feeling much better. The swelling has gone down but he is still very sore.
He is very sure that it isn't seafood related. He's always been very careful to avoid any kind of seafood, much as he loves crab and shrimp. The weird part is that only the areas exposed to the air were affected, his face, neck, arms and hands. That his tongue swelled as well makes me think it was airborne.
At any rate he's doing much better. The guys at work are teasing him that he's just homesick (awwwwwwwww... I miss you too Zachary!) but I'm pretty sure its something more complicated than that. I'm just relieved that the medicine is helping, even though the cause is still a mystery.
Thanks again folks. As always, you have been a great source of comfort and support when things go a little wacky here in my life. Love you all,
