Last Sunday, while vacationing with her sister in Door County, my sister-in-law was stung by a bee. She immediately felt ill, told her sister she was dizzy, and collapsed in front of a restaurant. CPR was started immediately, a first responder was walking down the sidewalk and jumped in and assisted. She never regained consciousness. My poor brother has to do the most heart wrenching thing any spouse has to do. Signing a form giving permission for life support to be removed is something I hope no one in this group ever has to do! I've done it, I know the second guessing that you live with afterwards.
To our knowledge, she hadn't had much of a reaction to bee venom. Or, perhaps, had never been stung. She was in perfect health.
Please, if you've ever had even a minor reaction to an insect bite, discuss this with your doctor. I had a bad reaction to fire ants. I dismissed it as a one time thing. I called my doctor. He prescribed an epi-pen. Turns out, I've been extremely lucky.
Our family is devastated by this loss.
