I miss doing my weekly weekend updates. I find myself going back through my archives to see what we did "this weekend last year" so my goal is to make a better attempt to do my weekly weekend updates, and also to take more pictures. I've gotten bad about that lately. I'm sure that will change when the sweet babe comes. :-)
Friday night Luke and I stayed home and took it easy. We had plans to go out with friends, but both of us had a crazy week, plus its the end of the month so the cash isn't flowing (if ya know what I mean) so we decided to have a night in.
I cleaned, and Luke grilled steaks, potato's and made some pasta salad. We OF COURSE watched a couple of episodes of Friday Night Lights and had a nice relaxing night together.
Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and headed to the OU game with our good friends Kelsey and Chris. We aren't OU fans (which is rare around here) but our friends our big fans and we like hanging out with them so we joined them for the game.
It was so fun, completely hot, but a lot of fun.
This is where my weekend update gets long because it results in a trip to the ER.
After the game Luke and I headed to the fair because his band was playing a show at 9:00 on Friday night.
As Luke was unloading his car I was walking through the grass to his stage (with sandals on) and I felt a sting right in the middle of my right foot. It hurt so bad, and was so strange because I had sandals on. I was hoping it would go away but it kept stinging and itching. I took my sandal off and I didn't seen anything, like a bite or something but it was itching so bad so I was scratching the fire out of my foot.
That night I went home and went to bed and didn't think about my foot again.
Every Sunday morning Luke leaves to go to the church around 7:00. He always wakes me up to tell my bye, when he woke me up this morning I told him my foot was still bothering me and had been itching all night.
Then I went back to sleep.
I woke up about an hour later and as soon as I put my foot on the ground it felt like I was stepping on a golf ball. It was the oddest feeling. So I looked to see what I was stepping on and then realized it was just my foot. So I looked at the bottom of my foot and saw that it was SOO red and swollen. Not Good.
So naturally I called my mom to get her opinion.
Actually I googled "Spider bite while pregnant" first. Looked at about two sites and decided it would not be in my best interest to keep reading.
Love it when that self control actually works.
My mom thought I should probably go to an urgent care to get it checked out. So I got dressed and drove around town to every Urgent Care. Apparently they all open at noon on Sunday.
NOT HELPFUL IN AN URGENT CARE SITUATION.
So after a couple of calls to my mom and to Luke (who was getting ready to go on stage at church) we all decided it would be best if I went ahead and went to the emergency room. Which is a scary, scary place. I kept my nose and mouth under my shirt for a good majority of the time. So that I wouldn't breathe the same air as all the other sickies. They should have a separate waiting room for those who are healthy but have physical impalement's.
I'm sure I looked ridiculous but there were people puking, hacking up their lungs, and sneezing near me. I don't care how I looked.
Long story short, I sat there for about an hour and a half, finally saw a man who calls himself a Dr, who told me that he doesn't know what bit me but its pretty infected.
I told him I was having pain in the upper part of my leg and could that be from the bite?
He said "probably".
So now I'm on an antibiotic, laying on the couch with my leg elevated praying that this goes away with no trouble.
Everything is so much scarier when your pregnant. Especially when your Dr. looks like Doogie Howser and acts like you are a complete waste of his time.
My foot still itches pretty badly (which I'm guessing is the infection) and hurts to walk. I'm not worried about myself just praying that nothing affects the baby.
Now I'm off to sanitize the clothes I was wearing in the ER. I brought my Harry Potter book with me and I can't decide if i want to spray Lysol on it, or just go buy a new one.
Once I get the ER bills I will probably just spray it with Lysol.
