Getting Stung By a BEE was not on my agenda today.

I went to my mother’s to pick up something and while we stood in her driveway talking, I felt something sting me.  I looked down and a bee was stinging the top of my hand.  I shook my hand and then had to pull out the stinger.

I rushed home (thank goodness we only live about five minutes from her) and took a histamine shot and 1600 mg. of vitamin C and put ice on my hand.  My throat feels tight and swollen.  I can still take more histamine and have an epi-pen if I absolutely need it although it has been years since I used an epi-pen and don’t even know how I will react to it.  I will keep you updated.
