Mount Airy, North Carolina
We pulled out of Gretna, Virginia Saturday morning.
The night before on our way home from visiting Garner and Inez Willey my foot started to itch in the exact spot where it had swelled up after the bee sting in Marietta, Ohio. It then started swelling and turning red. Our plans were to visit the Richard Petty Museum but decided to head straight to Mount Airy and a urgent care.
Bill and I decided we'll wait here in Mount Airy for our friends, Ron and Gay Smith, who are coming up this way from Florida. We've stayed here a few times before and it's one of our favorite places to stay.
A flat almost level site was quite a change from the previous RV resort. The level ups worked perfectly. As soon as we plugged in the power and water, we went to the local urgent care. It was almost closing time and we got right in. I was told I have a soft tissue infection from the sting area. Bill and I stopped at the local Walmart and got the two prescriptions filled. I was told to keep my foot elevated.
Bill had a bite on his thigh that kept itching him. We didn't do a thing yesterday but lay around and watch TV. Bill started breaking out in welts and itching. It's strange because it started above his knee and below his waist. The urgent care had already closed at 3 pm. I tried finding another in the area that was open with no luck.
This morning we went back to the urgent care. The doctor told Bill he didn't know what it was but gave him two shots of cortizone and three prescriptions.
My foot was looking real good--was looking good. I went out to get something out of the truck and got stung between the toes in the exact spot as the first sting. What's the chance of that?
There are so many things in this area to see and the only place we've been is the urgent care and pharmacy.
Stay tuned this shall pass and we'll have some interesting things to tell you about.
