Days 5 & 6…Don’t ask!

22 01 2012

Ugh, our resolution went downhill yesterday and today.  Yesterday, due to stress and fatigue.  Today, we had a meeting with Fr. Vince to go over the liturgy for the wedding.  I tried to get Mario to go get pizza sauce (which is one of the reasons why we didn’t do pizza the night before) and he didn’t want to.  So we ended up spending too much money at Ruby Tuesdays for lunch.  We also got the opportunity to look at the materials Fr. Vince gave us and left with the entire liturgy planned.  Yay us!  Later we had plans to go to dinner with Gordon, so that blew our Saturday meal plan.  Then they decided to go for gelato and a movie.  The gelato was delicious, but NOT dairy free.  The movie was good, except for the sample of bacon flavored popcorn that they did not tell us what bacon flavored. 

Post movie: Upon arrival at our house, Mario started complaining that his chest was hurting.  Then he was doubling up on the floor in agony.  He tried laying down with no avail.  Then he ended up vomitting in the bathroom.  I gave him an antacid, but that only helped a little.  Right before I nearly threw him in the car to go to the hospital, I googled two things food allergies and heart attack.  I was pretty sure it was the gelato and chocolate causing his trouble, but I didn’t want to over look a possible heart attack and lose him!  Luckily his symptoms only fit a food allergy and after an allergy pill, he returned to normal within minutes.  Thank God!  Now his diet will be much stricter as it should have been.

FYI:  Here are the links that I used to judge whether Mario had an allergic reaction or possible heart attack.  While I am not a doctor and cannot make any health claims, these sites helped us determine what steps needed to be taken for us.  If you think you are in a real medical emergency, please call 911.
