Thanks for the info about Barb, Carol. I hope the drugs are taking the edge off at least. My son had a heart cath, but he is young and healthy, but it must hurt because he was mighty grouchy when he woke up. I'm glad the bite to Nikita was not as bad as it could have been. and I hopethey got her right to the doctor. My boyfriend was a venomous snake handler and the worst things about bites are often the pain and the loss of tissue at the bite site. but that is with totally healthy people. Im not sure that any of us here would do well witha snake bite. It takes a real toll on the liver and kidneys. I'm so glad to hear she is doing so well. It sounded like something I would do, minus the flips. More like I went outside and fell on my face on a snake. That's about my speed. I can't imagine what Barb is going through with this. I'm glad she was well enough to get away for a while and Barb I hope you are having a good time and I'm so glad you are doing better. You too, Carol. Now you both need to stay away from snakes.
