Just thought I would share this Aussie home video about a man trying to catch a Huntsman spider inside his home - it is sooooo funnee - it really cracked me up because we used to live in an area where we had these visitors quite often & oh man, they really are FAST & very tricky to catch! A real Aussie experience for Australia Day ...



And, oh yeah - my head is still hurting with a kind of tension headache even 3 days after the accident - is that normal???

Just to be safe Pru you should see a doctor.
A headache for 3 days doesn't sound good :shock:

Off to check your video...

Yes I was just thinking that too Beth - so if I still wake up with the headache tomorrow I will definitely go the docs (no doctors open today due to the holiday & I sure wouldn't fancy sitting in a hospital Casualty waiting area for hours & hours today :x )

Cute vid isn't it - I luv how you can hear the little "camera" girl telling Daddy at the end "you shouldn't play with spiders Daddy" ... :laugh

:omg Pru, that spider is HUGE! Reminds me of a tarantula.

I also think you should see a doctor, Pru, about that headache.

I agree - on the spider and on seeing the doctor if your headache is still around in the morning. Please keep us posted!

Hi again :sfwave:

just thought I would let you know that I did end up going to see an After Hours Doctor yesterday as I was getting pretty worried about how I was feeling - and I am so glad I did as he was able to advise me that my brain seemed fine (!) but said I should have a CT scan in the next few days just to see if any bones in my face were cracked - and that I probably just needed a much stronger pain killer - so he gave me a prescription for Panadeine Forte (it's got Codeine in it) - well, within a matter of 30 minutes I felt sooooo much better - ha ha! I just didn't realize how much pain I was in - and this morning, right now, I can tell my head is feeling better - phew! - but it sure doesn't look better - :o - I try not to look in mirrors, or go out shopping, too much.

Pru, I'm so relieved to read that you went to the dr. and will be getting a CT scan . . . just to make sure. :sfthumbs: Maybe if Mr. Pru kisses the boo-boo, it will feel even better . . . ?

OMG....who would have thought so much action was going on with this thread...I'm just now catching up...you poor thing, Pru!!! I'm glad your brain is ok...are you gonna take your Doctor's advice and get further tests? You'd better...Loved the recipes, etc....but REALLY loved the spider video...that was tooooooooooooo funny. I loved what the little girl said at the end (I won't spoil it for you, Beth...just watch it when you get your sound back...)

That's a sweet thought :loveheart: SusanE ... however ... it looks so nasty I don't think he would know where to kiss anymore! :roll:

Ha ha! I am going to give him yr advice SusanE - for a few more kisses!

And you got it right :mrgreen: ! - his first instrument is guitar then comes double bass then cello then violin.

Looking forward to seeing the results of that CT scan when I see the doc again tomorrow - my head still doesn't feel good inside - which reminds me I need to take one of those pain killers ... :sprint

OK - I finally got the results of those CT scans as I had to go to the hospital yesterday due to more bleeding & yes, apparently there are fractures all on the left side of my face - under the eye & the cheekbone - so now the doc put me on Amoxycillin & referred me to a facial specialist, which thankfully is on Monday.

I don't like gardening any more! :x

OH PRU! I am so sorry to hear that your injury is causing you internal bleeding! I just want to "beam" myself over there and give you a big hug. Please rest and be very careful! My prayers are with you for a quick solution. If you should need to go into the hospital, is there a family member who can give us a report?
