Our first sting.

This is my sweet baby.

This is the scorpion that stung him (it's fairly small, about the size of a half dollar.)

This is the spot of the battle (the outside of his right leg, between calf and shin.)
Luckily, he is doing fine.  He seems to not be having any of the serious, or even not too serious, reactions that can occur from a scorpion sting.

Have I mentioned that I hate scorpions?

Ahhh, that is awful! Is there any way to get rid of them other than rounding them up and killing them off one by one?

opps, I am borrowing Carla's computer and it automatically left my message with her name. The above was from me :)

Ouch! Maybe you can get a scorpion-eating snake. Also I would like to point out that there are no scorpions in Orem, and there are a few houses for sale here. -John

Ugh. Poor guy. Poor mom! Did the spraying help at all?

Lyle said...

Poor little guy. What are you guys going to do?

Poor Henry. I'm glad he hasn't had a serious reaction. Stupid scorpions.

Laura said...

I'm glad there was no mad rush to the hospital. You must have had a panicky few minutes. I'm glad he's feeling better.

Scary! Aren't the smaller ones supposed to be the most poisonous? Hope you're enjoying Arizona otherwise!
