    Bed bugs at Lombard hotel send woman to hospital:eek:

    Carrie Brown thought it was one mean and hungry spider that was biting her — and biting her and biting her — during her stay at a Lombard hotel.

    She was wrong.

    The insect was a bed bug.
    A letter she received from TownePlace Suites Chicago Lombard, where she began staying Aug. 21, informed her “a bed bug” was found in the room, and confirmed as such by Ecolab, a Minnesota-based company that specializes in cleaning, sanitizing, infection control and food safety.

    Brown’s estimated 50 bed bug bites itched and swelled so much that on Wednesday, she had a friend drive her to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, where she was admitted for treatment of an infection called cellulitis.
