So yesterday I get home from work and Evelina’s foot was swollen pretty bad. On July 4th she got bit by some type of insect leaving my sister’s house following the pool party; or so we thought. Anyway, I bought some Benadryl which she took and went to sleep. Around 6:30 last night I woke her up from her nap on the couch and looked at her foot. It was huge!
I immediately got her up and we headed to the ER. Come to find out Evelina was bitten by some type of snake! Thank goodness all of the blood work revealed it was non-venomous and she will recover quickly. She’ll be on crutches for a couple of weeks and will have to ice and elevate for a week or so. We were at the hospital until early morning so we are dragging today just a bit.
She’s the only person I’ve ever known to have been bitten by a snake.
