This past weekend mom was outside minding her own business. She was just innocently walking to the mailbox perhaps even whistling. When out of the blue – BAM! Something hit the back of her head. She ran her fingers through her hair, didn’t feel anything and kept going. She didn’t think twice about it while she was running her errands.
But as the day went on, she started getting a headache. There seemed to be a lot of pressure in the back of her head. She reached up to give it a feel and WOW! There was a huge bump back there and her head felt slightly swollen. It also hurt to touch. What in the world happened?
She went and showed it to daddy. He felt it and gave her his best advice, “Call the nurse hotline.” Mom called the nurse hotline and told them what happened. Well, it is that time of the year when all of the bugs come out in nature. They think she possibly got bit by a bee or wasp. She took some benadryl and the swelling has went down some. You can still feel a little bump on the back of her head but the headache is nothing as bad as it was.
So friends with two or four legs if you are out in nature, please be wary of these winged creatures who like to hit it and run.
