Her poor little thumb is all red and swollen. I know it was burning/stinging because she willingly soaked it in a bowl of ice water for 20 minutes.
She had eaten some melon and left a few squares behind. I was peeling apples for dinner and noticed the YJ land in the syrupy juice. He was stuck and dying. I didn't want to touch him myself given my allergy. She came back in and before I realized decided to snack on those last couple bites. I knew instantly when she yelled and Gregg was able to pull the stinger out. We gave her benedryl immediately and watched her carefully (for those that don't know, Alex and I are both fatally allergic). The reaction was completely local but we don't yet know if this was our freebie or if she is in the clear. The next sting, if she has one, will likely tell.
