Oh! What have the poor scorpions ever done to Jen F? She has taken on these pitiable creatures as if she were Van Helsing and the scorpions were undead monsters.

Our 3-year-old got stung by a scorpion last spring. It was horrible.... we have no idea when the initial sting happened, he just said his foot hurt. Within an hour he was drooling uncontrollably, eyes rolled back in his head, couldn't stop screaming. We took him to the ER where he received a very expensive dose of anti-venom. Half an hour latter, he was fine. My 18 and 16 and 10 year olds have also been stung, but had no dramatic reactions beyond the pain. Just KILL the %^%$# things, Jen. They don't deserve to live!
