So, not this past weekend but the previous one, I was minding my own business venturing out to the woods behind the house to retrieve my game camera. Before you get all "omg you shouldn't kill animals" I don't hunt and use the camera just to see what kind of wildlife I can verify is coming through my property.
Anyway, I am making my way towards the trap and I notice a hole in the ground that's cleared out around and see several yellow jackets flying around the hole. I say to myself "cool, a yellow jacket nest... lemme just alter my path to avoid them.." I get my camera, and start heading back up to the house. I make my way around the nest again and then BOOM! fug YOUR LEG MOTHERfugER! A rogue flying hellion is latched on to my knee high white socks (that I put on to help me see any ticks that might want to chomp on me) with his stinger doing all kinds of stabbing into my calf just above my ankle. I've got all kinds of environmental allergies so there was a minor thought that I hoped I didn't get a reaction to the sting. All seemed well. Just a mosquito bite type irritation and some very minor pain for the remainder of the evening.
Fast forward one week, to this past weekend.
Saturday, the wife and I painted the kitchen. I was noticing (and had noticed) that the area around the sting had been pretty itchy all week. Well, that night after being on it a while (and being on it a while at a birthday party that morning) my ankle had started swelling a bit and was red and hot.
Sunday morning, she's blazin'. I can't cure the itch. I figure I've got a pretty bad infection going on, so off to the Urgent Care I go.
The doc starts throwing around the words "staph" and the anagram "MRSA" and the possible need to cut the wound open if it doesn't respond to medication and I'm all like "aww hell naw!"
I'm now on two antibiotics. I got the swelling pretty much under wraps and the heat is out of it. But, she's still itching like a sonofabitch. I still have some fear that the antibiotics won't fully rid me of whatever is going on in there, and that I'll have to go back to the doc for another round or something else.
Needless to say, as soon as I get back at 100% I know a certain yellow jacket civilization that will be wiped from the planet.
