Recently I had some other volunteers over to my house for Jerijery (see other entry). While they were all here we had a mattress on the floor, and also a scorpion. One of the girls woke up at 5 am and thought her hand was asleep, then thought she cut it, then asked for help opening the door because it hurt so bad and was shaking. Kinsey impressed me by how calm she kept. We gave her some benadryl, called the doctors and I found looked for anything that might have been the culprit. I turned up a small brown scorpion with black markings on it’s back. Kinsey was fine. It was kind of like a bee sting, but worse. No problem.
