Renee started getting an itch on Monday night. Thought it was a bug bite, applied appropriate gels.

Tuesday morning it was still there but bearable.

By lunch time it had not only spread, but she claimed it was *MOVING* Did some quick research, called the doctor, figured out worst-case stuff

Got to the doctor, looks like she had a welt that covered about 20% of her skin. Doctor takes one look, and figures it for a food allergy. Gives her anti-histamines, gives her steroids.

Today it’s significantly better. Down to small hot spots.

I don’t think we’ll use that marinade again. Unless it was the tomatoes.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    All of a sudden one day my ex-wife developed a food allergy to sulfites which is fun since they are in everything. So we had to really watch when we bought wine or grape juice or those sorts of things. It would break her out in hives within hours of ingestion. Strangest thing since she was never allergic to them before. Likewise, I was never allergic to chocolate until my early 20’s. Now it’s moved into being mildly allergic to caffeine as well. What a toxic environment we’ve made for ourselves!
