Stung...


EZ E had a run-in with a swarm of yellow jackets this Saturday. 8 of them, to be exact (we found at least eight stings). Unbeknownst to us, they had built a nest inside the slide on his swing set and then freaked out when he tried to use it. EZ E is doing fine now. He loved riding in the ambulance and found the ER quite interesting (it certainly was freakish). He's also convinced that he's going to grow wings, a stinger, and multiple eyes.
We have a family history of severe bee and wasp allergies so I was concerned that he would have an allergic reaction. Luckily he did not. The EMT told us that allergic reactions will often manifest themselves after the second occurrence and that a child being stung multiple times is considered a medical emergency. Here's a link for more information about bee and wasp stings. So, bees and hives are the theme this morning. The image above is from united thread and the images below are from dingbat press...

Glad EZ is ok.

BTW, thanks for having the animal shelter link on your website. My dad has 4 kittens that need a home and I used your link to contact a local shelter. Wish us luck!

this happened to my brother when we were little! we were playing follow the leader on the railroad tie wall outside my grandparents house, and the bees had built a nest inside the wall. I didn't get any stings but I remember seeing them swarm all over him. Not gonna lie I am still petrified of bees & wasps.
Glad your little guy is doing ok!!
