Big Fat Hairy Spider

The big fat hairy spider
Climbed up on my leg
He sunk his teeth into me
And swelled up my foot and leg

I went to the doctor
Who looked and said "OH MY"
We have to cut it off now
Right below the thigh.

I looked at him in horror
I screamed out loud "OH EEK!!!"
Isn't there something else we could do?
And he smiled and said "Let's see"

He gave me these green pills
They were hard to swallow
I will take them for 7 days.
The doctors orders I will follow.

I think I will be ok
I'll let you know tomorrow.
Right now I have to go lay down.
And green pills I have to swallow.

This is a true story....oh except for that part about having to cut off my leg.
My foot is so swollen that when I push on it with my finger a crater stays there forever. The doctor said it was a good thing I came in because a spider bite is nothing to mess around with.
I would show you a picture.....but I don't want to gross you out.

He also gave me an inhaler because I am coughing like the dickens.
Don't worry I will survive...

I would like to give a shout out to Linda....Thanks for the do you always know when I need a pick em up?
Love ya Barb
