A Week Later and the Sucking Has Stopped!

Exactly one week ago I had myself a little blogging pitty party about my spider bite and banged up toe. Since ya'll were so kind to let me dump my baggage, I thought it would be nice to follow up and say how great I feel today!

Last Tuesday I saw my wonderful doctor. After he finished scolding me for not having someone look at my arm sooner, he gave me a perscription for an antibiotic and sent me on my way. I'm happy to report that I no longer look like I escaped from the leper colony (no offense intended to any lepers out there). The rash is all gone as is most of the itching. However my skin is peeling like crazy, so now I just look like I'm recovering from a sunburn.

My toe is slowly coming along. If you've ever stubbed a toe before bad enough to bruise it, you know what I mean. But it's much better than last week.

To top it all off, when I was going over part of my WIP yesterday, I discovered that I had two chapters marked "4" which means I have one more chapter than I thought I had. Cool! Even though it didn't change the length of the WIP, or how many chapters I have left to write, it still felt like a little gift, like finding $10 you forgot you had in your jeans pocket.

Praise God for He is good... He was good even when I felt lousy, and He's good now as I bask in an abundance of chapters. I wonder what tomorrow will bring...

Jen...I hope that one week later, your toe's woes are even better. I preordered your book from Amazon. I'm really looking forward to reading it!

You're awesome! Thanks for ordering the book.

Yes, the toe is better, but man it takes forever. Dear hubby was so helpful to point out that I wouldn't have hurt my toe at all if I'd been wearing shoes. Now I ask you, what normal human wears shoes inside their own home?

No kidding! Why aren't all houses designed with a shoe closet right beside the front door? Didn't anyone pay attention to Mr. Rogers? First you take off your jacket and put on your sweater, then you take off your shoes and put on your slippers, then continue on with your day. Of course not all of us take a magical train ride with talking cat puppets, but to each his own :)
