My spider bite is healing up way faster than I would have expected. Since the doctor gave me a choice I decided against taking an antibiotic (which make me feel worse than what I'm treating usually). I can't believe how much better it looks. After the research I did when it first happened I'm guessing this is what they call a "dry" bite which means no venom was injected, so I'm thanking my lucky stars lol.
My dad called me this morning to tell me that Aslan's brother Rip got chewed up by a neighbor's dogs. They just about ripped his ear off. He's at the vet right now getting sewn up. Amazingly during it all he's been happy go lucky and calm about the whole ordeal, but it's going to be a huge chunk of money for my parents. I'm so tired of bad stuff happening all the time.
I hadn't mentioned it until now because frankly I'm sick of complaining on my blog. That's not the reason I started it. My husband hurt his back a week ago and it's not getting better so he has to have an MRI on Monday. The doctor suspects a slipped disc. I'm hoping it's something minor. Money is really tight right now because he's on temporary disability from work for now. I don't know how long it will be.
I've been having to take care of all of the animals, doing all the household chores and cooking, working, etc by myself because my husband literally can't do anything. Carrying the basket of eggs from the hen house to the house is about all he can manage before he has to sit back down. So it's been a stressful week. I'm going to spend some time with my friends tonight because I really need a break from everything. Anyway that's an update on what's going on. Sorry it's mostly complaining lol. I feel bad for doing that because I would like my blog to be upbeat and positive. :-/
