Bee Stings

Nothing deep here, just a patient who was attacked by what I have to assume were ‘killer’ bees. Patient has a mobility problem prohibiting him from running, or walking briskly for that matter.

And how many stingers are there?


That many (and three basins because three people spent about an hour getting all these out).

The patient did very well, and was discharged from the ED.

Photosensitivity solution

A corneal ulcer is painful, and at least some of the pain comes from iris spasms, which are treated with eye dilating drops (paralyze the iris, it stops spasming). This is good for pain, but makes every light unbearably bright.

So, what does an enterprising self-employed person do, who needs to get some work done?
