That bug sting I got on Wednesday at approximately 11:26:43 AM but who's tracking? Wish as I did for "just a glancing shot", the thing morphed into an ugly angry itchy hot lumpy thing. Well, I suppose that was all of me in general.
It's a slow process. In fact, I spent Wednesday afternoon volunteering at Meego's band camp while the leg remained pretty operational despite a growing red patch covering my inner thigh. But by Thursday morning, it was well on its way to Manatee Leg
CoinkyDinkly, I had a doctor's appointment Thursday morning for my annual "well woman" checkup. That term always conjures up an image similar to--->
in my brain.
Even though a well woman checkup is not similar to that at all
ANYWAY, since I was there, I figured I'd ask the good doctor about this bee sting business
Not surprisingly, the lumpy thing did the asking for me. The doctor's medical jargon reply:
"What is THAT?!"
So we talked bee stings and my typical reaction. I swear I thought this is something everyone goes through! When others told me they just maybe get a little bump, I just figured they hadn't been stung by a "real" bee. 😕
But based on the fact that the doc has been through med school and all, and that she even went so far as to suggest I start carrying an Epipen, I began to realize that Manatee Leg (neck/chest/hand...) was not a normal reaction.
I think I'm over the worst of it now as it maxed out sometime Thursday into Friday. There's still quite a bit of bee juice in there, but the redness and general discomfort has lessened. I have an appointment next week with an allergist *fingers crossed*
In other news of excess stuff, Wolfgang has temporarily moved in
That's Meego at his computer among most of Wolfgang's crap. Meego has an entire couch now for a "desk chair". It was the most logical place for the couch, so be it.
Wolfgang's lease was up at his apartment, and he's not wanting to sign another lease as the plan is to move out of town in the near future. In the meantime, he has his job here in town, but is looking to expand his employment horizons while filling our house with stuff.
