Poor Nathan was stung by a bee last night.
It was so bizarre. He was in bed around 9pm and Nate and I were downstairs talking. All of a sudden, we hear this horrendous ear-piercing scream from Nathan. Nate & I ran upstairs, where Nathan met us at his door. He was sobbing that a “bee is stinging” him! And sure enough, that is a hornet sitting on his knee! Nate knocked the bee off and then smashed it.
I picked up Joshua (who of course was also wide awake and crying – the boys share a room) and we all went downstairs. I put an ice pack on Nathan’s knee and gave him some Motrin. There was no stinger in his skin, so it was just a matter of icing it down and keeping the swelling away. Thankfully it barely swelled at all and Nathan is quite fine this morning.
How strange was that?! I have no idea how why it happened. Poor Nathan! I’m just glad he was okay.
