The Sting

I am not trying to compete with Firefly Mom in the injury category, but dagnabbit, I got stung by a yellow jacket. I was taking the compost out Monday evening, same as last time, and got stung in the back of my right leg. After observing the symptoms for the past few days, I'm convinced that it was what got me last time.

First was the throbbing pain. Then came the stiffness. After that, the itching and swelling. Luckily it's not my finger this time, so while my lower right leg is swollen down to the ankles right now, it doesn't hinder me too much (I can do a lot of stuff while limping...haha). Still, I need to get off the computer and go prop my leg up.
