This morning my eye was completely swollen shut from my two stings on the face yesterday. I called in sick today and was at the doctor's office at 8am. Always looking for an opportunity, my swollen face became quite a fun way of talking about beekeeping with the staff and patients in the waiting room. The doc gave me a steroid shot, wants me taking benadryl and Xantac several times a day, take two days off work, and use cold compresses on my eye and face. The funny thing is my doctor is very interested in beekeeping and would like to come see my bees sometime.
