Never a dull moment!!!

Had an excavator come in and do some major landscaping yesterday, pulled out some old bushes and hedge. When he was finished that job, it was off to dig up(making it wider, now the size of a runway, LOL) the driveway to prepare a base for paving in the Spring, it seems never ending his Summer!!
It got much worse, can you believe it!!!!!
Yes, this was a wasp sting and we spent the afternoon in the E.R.
Both sides of her face ballooned like you can't imagine, the staff at Sick kids were amazing and had her hooked up to every monitor possible. The reaction didn't cause any breathing issues but both eyes swelled shut making her very uncomfortable. They gave us medication, we iced the areas and already this morning she looks better.
There are never any dull moments around here, how is your weekend going?

oh poor thing.
Thursday I am driving Ryan to his co-op class Jacob has a huge nosebleed blood all over the van...then that afternoon Caitlyn was stung by a yellow jacket on the leg. Didn't get as bad as a reaction as your sweet monkey. Ants are worse for her.
Hope your seet little one feels better today.

Listen, at the top of your blog, there is a bunch of code that is showing through. Would you like me to try to fix that for you?

Poor little thing....hope she is feeling much better!

Glad to hear her breathing was not affected....I purposely carry around those one shot doses of Benadryl in case someone gets stung and has an allergic reaction!
