I can't believe this!

Another trip to the ER, can you believe it my son got strung by another bee!!!! This time on the ear, it blew up like a balloon. I got Benadryl into him right away but he was feeling a tightness in his chest so off I went to the ER. He is ok, I just can not believe all that's happened this summer.

I need a break today.

sounds like you need to get dear DR. to prescribe you an epi pen to keep handy!!!

Hope he's feeling better now.

Stings can be so scary when you're allergic.

You should be getting an epi pen every summer. If he takes a direct hit or multiple hits you won't have time for anything else. It's a "better safe than sorry" thing.
Our DD got 7 stings before we could cross the yard and get her outta that mess!!

Wow, that's scary. Glad he is ok -- that epi pen sounds like a good idea... And Bon -- 7 stings? That's crazy scary.

OK, I know, a dog can't REALLY compare to a child, but the other day I was walking ours and one started freaking out over her foot. I couldn't find anything wrong but called DH w/ my cell and he was there in an instant to pick us up. She threw up. Got home, she threw up about 5 more times and was listless for a couple hours. We couldn't get a hold of the vet but realized she wasn't going to die so did not take her to emergency. Finally, I found a tiny bee stinger in the top of her foot. I took it out and she perked up. (Timing was coincidence, I'm sure.) Scary stuff.
