Not-so Disturbing Photos

A while back, I wrote about getting bit by a "meat bee," and I said that I had taken photos of my hand but lost them.

Well, I found them - and keep in mind that the swollen hand is somewhat less swollen than it had been because I had been given some steroid shots.

In my ass.

It was a fun day.

The swollen hand:

Looks good for Kay's "Ruby tuesday," really.

And for comparison - the other, non-swollen hand for comparison:


Kay said...

Steph said...

Oh good lord quit yer bitching and get back to putting those groceries away.

Hi, I wandered over from Kay's blog to let you know that I was attacked by a feral bee for the first time and I too ended up with a hand that looked better suited to a Cabbage Patch doll. It took months for the swelling and itching to finally disappear. I hope you were the recipient of much sympathy!

Interesting. Looks like you could poke the hand with a pin and stuff would come out. Hope it's better by now.

Ordinaryjanet: Oddly, that's pretty much exactly what I was thinking when it happened. I guess my thought process wasn't as weird as I had assumed.

Myrelish: Welcome, and thanks for the comment. What kind of bee did you get stung by that left you swollen for months?
