Bit by a Scorpion
bark scorpion)it was more "like a bee sting" and that it would bother her for a few hours and maybe some tylenol would make her feel better. Boy was this guy so wrong! Cecilia twisted and screamed in pain. Nothing would make her happy. Eventually doctors called the poison control center who directed them to prescribe tylenol with codeine for the pain. As time went by she got calmer but with a few bouts of pain in between. By this time Melissa had stayed at hospital while I brought the other two home for their nap. It wasn't 'till Anthony got home that I was able to go back to hospital to get them. For the rest of the day Cecilia was not herself and even into the night she was restless but by the next morning she was back to the happy baby I knew. At least now we know what to do if it happens again. No rushing to the doctor to be diagnosed by a stupid nurse. put ice on the bite, give a nice dose of tylenol (with codeine) if available and lock yourself with them in a room to contain the crying and screaming. I sure hope it never happens again. Oh yeah! Looking for a great pest control person, know anyone?
