Knocked down by an itsy bitsy spider

Sunday, June 28, 2020

After getting through Covid-19-so far, I woke up last week with a spider bite on my side.Here it is 4 days later and the bite is infected has ballooned out and is very sore plus running a temp. Called the doctor locally and he prescribed Cephalaxin so there I am. No food for a day and a half and max 2 hours sleep at night. Time for a pity party.
With all the sickness and death in this country, it is a bit embarrassing to be done in by a spider.
If the meds don't clear it up I will see my PC Dr. and let her deal with it. For now I am keeping it coated in Neosporin and bandaged.

Back to the old me, I am looking for wood for next winter but it doesn't look promising as none of the tree companies are working now. If I do find logs, they will be green but I will use them anyway. (have to keep warm and keep the dog happy).
Exercise has not been a priority the last few months but I will get back into it once this infection is gone.

    Sorry the itsy bitsy spider got you. I hope the fever ceases and the Cephalaxin & Neosporin helps.

    We need to start thinking about getting wood delivered. Lots of labor stacking it all then carrying it in from ground level but well worth it.

    Feel better soon!
