Yesterday at work I managed to find a Yellow jackets nest with my big feet. I was able to get away after being stung 12 or more times. I had my daughter to take me to ER and spent most of the day there, the Dr asked how much pain I was in and made sure to order someting non-narcotic along with injections of benadryl and decadron and a tetnus shot for safety's sake. All in all I was very lucky and the only problem is knots about the size of softballs where I was stung. Got to be back out there today and will be mote observant for these nasty little jokers. I am grateful that the Dr looked at my records and noted that I am an addict and made special effort to keep the beast at bay with a non-narcotic pain reliever. I am so grateful to all on this forum and only wish I could spend more time with them.
May God truly bless and keep all of you.
