Stung by a Bee, 2 Nights at the Hospital

the Children Ward has this sofa that can be turned into a bed, so that the patient's guardian can sleep over.

the hand that got stung (not the one that is bandaged, thats where the intravenous fluid comes in) not as red and bown as yesterday.

The day before yesterday. In the afternoon, Emilie was playing in the backyard.
A bee came and stung her on her hand. We tought nothing much about it. It hurts yes, but we never thought that she could get a bad reaction over it.
In the morning it was still red and angry, we sent her to school as usual. But the teacher called and told us to take her home. We made appointment with our doctor, only get time at 5pm.
The doctor said that she get a bad reaction to it, the red and patch increased in size and the doctor sent her to the hospital. The hospital takes a long time, she had to wait from 6pm until 9pm before she was admitted to the ward.
The drip was set up last night to get the drug and water intravenously, and Alhamdulillah by the morning the red patch has subsided.
Tonight is the second night she is at the hospital, and getting better.

I got stung by a bee more than a couple of times when i was a kid. There were times when I was stung by tebuan, as well as semut selangor. Kerengga, thats nothing, we had a lot of those on the fruit trees.
But bad reaction to a bee sting? I would never think of it before.
Are we human getting weaker? Less immune to these kind of things?
