What a Day.

Saturday 16th May 2009
I woke up fairly early this morning. Jason had the Men's Breakfast here this morning and Xan and I were going garage saling. Didn't really find much at the garage sales. Xan bought a doll and I got an orange stuffed frog for Seb's collection. I also found a cute little stuffed lamb that I couldn't resist and a couple of scrapbook albums, a 6 by 6 and an 8 by 8. We went to River then because they had ladies boots on sale for $33. Got a high heeled black pair, a new watch and two scarves (black and white).
The rest of the morning and most of the afternoon was pretty quiet. I picked up Mum about 3.30pm and we went to Station Square. I needed to get some veges for dinner and some cardstock to make up this new reward system. Mum came around then. She was supposed to be staying for dinner but that changed. Explain that later. Mum and I went for a walk around the park and then I started getting organised for dinner. I asked Xanthia to take some rubbish down to the recycling bin. While she was down there she was bitten by something. We later found out it was a wasp. I immediately gave her a phenergan because she had a bad reaction last time she was bitten. 1/2 hour later I was ringing 13 Health because her finger(where she was bitten) had swollen and she was starting to get some hives on her stomach. As I was talking to the nurse the hives spread all over her body. The only part they weren't was below her knees. I dropped Mum home and rushed Xan to the hospital. They took her straight through and gave her some more medication and put her in a cool bath. They said that if I hadn't given her the phenergan her throat would have probably swollen. It was a really scary experience. The medicine they gave her worked really fast and we were able to go home 2 hours later. I had to get up in the middle of the night to give her another dose of phenergan and she had to have 3 more doses the next day.
