Pesky little things.



So this is a yellow jacket. Last night Ralph was stung multiple times by them. Not really sure how many but enough that he was carried away in an ambulance and taken to the hospital. After he was stung he started to complain that he couldn't see, couldn't breath and was dizzy. We were walking to the car to take him the the ER and before he could get to the car he collapsed. And let me tell you, I do not respond well to these situations. I panic and don't know what to do. Basically act like a blubbering idiot. Thank God for some fast acting neighbors! But all is well after being pumped with benadryl and steroids. We left a few hours later with a prescription for an epipen.

Holy crap girlfriend! I'm so glad that he's okay and that you have fast acting neighbors. I take it he didn't know he was allergic to bee stings.

Hugs!

Susan it probably wouldn't have been so bad if he'd only been stung by one. It was being stung by about 15 that made him so sick. We've got to get in the backyard and find that hive and get rid of it! Oh and yesterday was his birthday. His bd's are always bad luck for some reas on. I told him next year we'll celebrate on the 4th instead. LOL>

OMG Kelly!
I would've freaked out too!
So glad he is ok.
He didn't know he was allergic?
Hope that never happens again!
