This morning seemed quiet enough. L. and I were getting ready to go out and meet friends for a coffee / starbucks snack. We took Jackson out for a bathroom break and on the way back into the house he stepped on a yellow-jacket! Poor guy – he started whining / yelping / crying and not walking on that paw. So I called the vet – can’t really tell about any sort of stinger – Jackson already has a thing about his paws, so I couldnt’ get too close. No apparent swelling, but I did give him half a benadryl (in cheese! yummy). His breathing has been fine, so I don’t think we have an allergy issue. You can tell he can’t get comfortable – he would sit, then get up and move to another spot, lick his paws, lie down and repeat.
He’s better now – using the paw, gently. He’s been mostly sleeping / resting and accepts me picking him up when it’s time to go down stairs.
I’ve been pretty good about splitting my time among some of my more pressing projects – I finished another burp cloth last night. The color was hard to photograph, but it’s the swimming pool colorway – deep / bright blues:
