I have been trying to get back into the swing of things, with my goal being to post a heart a day for a while. Sometimes life gets in the way.
Yesterday I was stung on the hand by a bald faced hornet.
Within half an hour I was breaking out into hives.
Even after taking 2 allergy tabs, the hives continued to spread. And ITCH.
I ended up at the ER, and was told I am allergic to hornets! (ya think???)
They pumped me with all kinds of antihistamines and things. The itching faded, as did the hives. The doctor told me I may have stopped breathing had I not thought to take the two allergy tablets at home before I came in.
For 24 hours I have to take medicine - that's how long the toxins will stay in my system.
Sigh. I only hope I will feel well enough to go outside this afternoon and flip a rock!
