This was no Barry B Benson.

This was no Barry B. Benson.
And all the others he had with him were nothing like his friend, Adam Layman.
Carter was swarmed by wasps over the weekend. Bites all over his body; too many to count.
Terrifying cries for help got my husband to Carter's side to rescue him.
I was doing an open house so Dan had both kids & the 85lb lab with him.
He frantically got the screaming & trembling Carter along with Lilah (1) & dog into the SUV to search for treatment.
In the end, he has recovered. It was painful & frightening while it lasted-for all of us. Poor Carter.
He managed to pull himself together enough through the pain to muster,
"God should not make those swaps. They're bad"
I agree. I hate swaps. Stupid swaps.

Anyway, it got me thinking about those of you that may have children swarmed by disease, if you will. I think of you feeling helpless to swat away what is attacking your baby. My 6 ft 240lb husband was shaken. Even when we went back to the scene to look for the shoes lost in the battle, it was difficult for him. Just the image of a defenseless child and the uncertainty in trying to help.
My heart goes out to those of you that are still in the battle. Still hanging onto hope & struggling with uncertainty & fear.
