Crawling onward with fall
Hi girls :).
I had a little mishap on the 13th which curbed my following for a few days but I'm slowly regaining enough strength to visit.
I was walking on our country property to collect pinecones for a christmas project, something I've done many times before.
Something bit me but I didn't give it much thought as mosquitos are so prevalant so I carried on with my day. The next morning , I woke up with so much pain in my right leg (where I was bitten) to the point of not being able to move it.
I managed to sit up and look around. Much to my horror, my leg was swollen and bruised from toe to thigh with every vein looking like a roadmap.
Off to the emergency center.
The Drs first remark was snakebite. Absolutly not ,I would have seen that and still been laying out there dead from fright , not the bite. After wasting time looking for a snakebite that I told him did not exist and a million questions it was decided that it must have been a spider.
Multiple shots later I was allowed to go home with very strict instructions (only because I live 5 blocks from the hosp and would be able to come back immediatly if needed)and enough antibiotics to keel over a large elephant.
It took multiple days for the swelling to recede and the muscle pain is still lingering of which I'm told can last for quite some time or even be permanent to some degree *oh friggin lovely*.
Anyways, I'm aggrivated / agitated but recovering. Longterm sitting or standing is impossible so I'm having to gently mix both and go at a slower pace than I'm accustomed to but onward we're going.
I did get the pinecones though... LOL
I'm working on resetting the china cabinet but it's a slow progress.
It's taken me a week but I did finish the fall trees for the front steps. Pics to follow shortly.
