I went to the emergency room Sunday Night. I've been out of work for the w/e. My first night back is tonight. I rubbed my eyelid when I was refinishing some drawers Friday night. It ended up infected. The infection worked its way through my face and into my neck by Sunday night. The doc wanted to admit me after he gave me some iv antibiotics. I talked him out of it, since the next round of iv antibiotics wouldn't be due until 12a anyway. He let me go home with two ($340) prescriptions and a promise that if there were any change I would come back. The swelling has gone down in my neck, after 24 hours of antibiotics, but there is still swelling in my face and eyelid. My nose is now running like mad. I look like a gargoyle. I have to go into work tonight. It is a good thing that my work is over the phone. I could really frighten someone. Happy birthday to me. See, warned ya. Whine whine.
if it makes you feel any better hubby got in a fight with a whasp. he his it with a broom, came inside it was at the door he hit it agin, came back in.....15 swats later he went outisde and it got him in the 4head. he looked like he had downs for a few weeks
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame I'd even cut my hair and change my name
Oh BD I am so sorry. Happy Birthday anyhow. The runny nose I think maybe one of the ways the water that had you so swollen is leaving your system. Please listen to the doc and go back if it does not continue to improve. It may not be all out of your system, and unless it is gone completely it will wait a few days and come back and bite you. You have a right to whine. I do hope Something really nice happened to you for your birthday.
I would never try and hit a wasp LOL i am scared to death of wasps. If a wasp was coming near me i would be screaming and running around the yard :) Hopefully your nose will heal up, sorry about your infection.
OUCH! She either ran into a fist or a door = ) Hubby was trimming the hedge a few years ago. Gorgeous day,decided to take off his shirt. Yep! cut a wasp nest in two. He only got about 3 or 4 stings but the neighbors were dying. He was running around the backyard with a can of Raid spraying and yelling 'take that you little buggers, take that'! The hedge is long gone, but every year someone brings up that story ; ) Glad your birthday was not a total loss.
At my hubbie's shop we had a hive of bees move into a rack in the work area. It was a slow day, and my husband and one of our employees were using a couple of bb guns to shoot cans off the top of the rack. Grant, the employee, yelled don't shoot the beehive! My hubby did. The swarm chased all of us out into the field behind the shop. We were swatting at each other to get the bees off. A customer pulled up in front of the shop, and Grant and I went up to him to tell him to come back later, as we were currently having a bee problem. He had a bee in his hair, so I swatted him ontop of the head. He left. he didn't come back. I could imagine what it looked like from the street.
Keystone Kops routine? Sorry I really am dating myself. I am not that old, only 65. Its never funny at the time, but Lord later it is. I am so glad you enjoyed it. We have been married almost 47 years raised four kids, various animals etc. Every once in awhile something comes up to remind you and you sit and laugh and laugh. Take care. norma
