Not Again!

I don't know what it is with Sterling! He has some kind of wasp magnet above his eyes. Sterling saw a turtle when he was getting the mail. After bringing the mail home, we went back out to find it. It wasn't there anymore, so he checked in the storm drainage tube. There must have been a wasp nest, because one of them got him right between the eyes.
We have too much experience with this, so as soon as he showed me, I gave him a dose of benadryl. Night time is the worst for swelling, and this is what he looks like this morning.
Poor kid. This reminds me to request an epi-pen from the doctor. What if he got stung in the throat next time??

Oh my goodness, poor Sterling! Does it looks worse than it feels? That looks awfully painful.

Ach nee !!!
Wat een pech heeft hij toch met die wespen !!
En het lijkt me inderdaad wel heel slim om zo'n epi-pen aan te schaffen. Je moet er toch niet aan denken wat er anders zou kunnen gebeuren als hij in zijn keel wordt gestoken.
Heeft hij ook veel pijn, of is het hoofdzakelijk heel vervelend en lastig.
Vertroetel hem maar lekker.
