Elishah Thomas has been stung before, so she didn’t give it much thought when a yellow jacket nabbed her on the morning of Aug. 18.
She and her company were picking apricots at her place, about 12 miles outside of Baker City, when a wasp stung her middle finger.
“I’ve never had a problem with stings — even this summer,” she said.
To alleviate her throbbing finger, she dabbed on some Benadryl cream and then returned to picking apricots.
Not long after, she came down with a throbbing headache.
She and took some ibuprofen and went back outside to feed the horses and get her truck for a trip to town.
