I thought I’d check in with one final update on the spider today. While most Atlantan’s are preparing for a new school year, on this last day of July I finally splashed into summer! I got the a-ok to resume normal operations regarding showers, swimming, baths and exercise post spider bite. I will end up with a pretty big scar but it is on the back of my thigh and I turned down the offer if seeing a plastic surgeon for that. Hey, I have a real battle wound now! (It honestly did look like a gunshot wound for a while.)
We still had a full month of travel and fun, but it was a looooong ten weeks staring at this backyard pool and not being able to swim. I am so grateful for wonderful medical care in Atlanta, support of friends and family, and for ALL of your kind emails and comments over the last two and a half months! What a ride!
Now that we are back in town, I’ll resume normal operations here on the blog too – covering food, decor, books, celebrations, family and Disney, of course.
Cheers to a new month and new beginnings for yours truly!
UPDATE: If you really, really want to read the full schedule of events and see the nasty photos, I have created a hidden page that you can access here. I have reached the end of the internet on MRSA photos and information. I was and primarily am interested in what things to visually look out for. I am ONLY sharing this for reference in the hopes that it can help someone down the road. MRSA can be deadly. CLICK WITH CAUTION
