The new Spiderman?

It has been a crazy week and a half!

On the 4th, while at a local swimming pool in Mexico, Joe was bitten by a spider. This is the second time for him! The locals have a particular name for it but we haven't been able to figure it out yet. It is a small white spider whose venom is very painful.

After being bitten on Monday, Joe's foot began to hurt that evening. The pain got worse on Tuesday until by Wednesday, he couldn't walk on it. The last time this happened, we didn't know what was wrong and the bite got infected. This time, Joe immediately elevated the foot, began icing the area and applied an ointment which the doctor prescribed the last time.

Fortunately, no infection this time and the pain was bearable. Finally, today, Joe is able to walk around without crutches for the first time since last Tuesday!

Hope you day is going well!
