It's looking a little bit better. From the nasty photos we've seen online I'm still a little worried. The Boy looked up in his medical journals and databases all the must do medical type things for Brown Recluse spider bites. He's been throwing around fancy medical words and pretty much treating this as a learning experience. As soon as he started feeling well again that is. According to what we've read this sore could take up to 4 weeks to heal.
I totally called it when I handed him 4 Benadryl and a glass of water. I should have been a doctor.
Librarian Doctor! She looks up what ails you!
That has a nice superhero ring to it. Think the major networks would pick it up?
The part could be played by some sexy actress (All superwomen should be played by sexy actresses). Her hair in a bun, glasses on a chain, a stethoscope tucked into her lab coat pocket which hides her sensible jumper. By day she's a mild mannered librarian but when someone is in distress (which she can hear with her ultrasonic hearing because she hasn't screwed it up by working in an environment with a lot of noise. All that shushing is paying off) She pulls out her stethoscope, whips off her glasses and runs to the rescue in her sensible low-heeled shoes.
What does this have to do with his toe. Nothing. As he says; "You've got to make it all about you". Yeah, well it's my blog.
With frequent doses of Benadryl, gargling and rinsing with Hydrogen Peroxide (just don't swallow it) and elevating his foot. He is now feeling so much better. He's been able to eat solid food, can move around without feeling like an arthritis victim, and his head is not threatening to fall off his neck. Of course, he can't put shoes on yet. Or at least that was his excuse for why he didn't take the garbage out.
Thank you all for your concern. Saturday was pretty scary. I kept waking him up like he was a baby that you worry has stopped breathing though they never do but you have to check on them anyway.
