A couple of weeks ago I had some issues with a medication I had been taking for over 10 years. Only a small percentage of people develop this specific condition called angioedema…and I just happened to be one of the lucky ones! It all started when I decided to head outside on a nice day for a quick run. When I returned back to my place my face felt funny and I could tell something was wrong. When I looked into the mirror I was met with this surprise:
AWWWW…go ahead and scream with me, you know you want to. My eyes became swollen and remained that way for a good 48 hours…super awesome! At any rate, they did eventually go down but I am still convinced they are not the same. I think I now have more of a darker under color below my eyes…it could be just in my head. From this lovely event I had to go see an allergist to make sure this happened because of a medication and not anything else. My sweet mom decided to come to Columbus and go see the doctor with me and then make a day of it. The allergist confirmed what we had originally thought…an allergic reaction to a medication that I can no longer take. End of that for now..thankfully!!
After that fun stuff, my mom and I decided to head over to the restaurant were my sister is a waitress: Barleys Smokehouse She has been asking us to get in there and see where she works for awhile now, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity. We acted like proud family members and probably embarrassed her with the amount of pictures we took of little Molly all grown up, ha!
Isn’t she precious!?!?! She did a really great job too, maybe I’m biased but we got our food in a timely manner and it was delicious! I would recommend checking this restaurant out and make sure you ask for Molly!
After lunch we headed to the Lane Ave. Shopping Center and looked around. My mom and I are not shoppers…we don’t really love it, we get annoyed easy when forced to shop for longer than we want to (which is about 5 minutes) Every now and then the shopping bug might hit us and we take advantage and get stuff done, but this particular day my mom was even less thrilled with looking at clothes than her average day. I came across a dress I thought was very cute…well my mom, on the other hand, HATED it. She couldn't stop talking about how awful and ugly it was…she couldn't fathom someone putting yellow and tan together like that…blah, blah, blah :) To end this I made her take a picture with the dress like it was her best friend and then we moved on to the next store. See below, my mom and her favorite dress:
Doesn’t she look so happy to be anywhere near the “ugly” thing? It was actually pretty comical, gotta love her honesty! Either way, it was a fun day and I welcome my mom to Columbus to “shop” with me any day…we always have a great time even if we aren’t the best shoppers in the world!
