A pregnant woman is still recovering from a brown recluse spider bite that happened over a month ago. Kendall Butler was woken by the bite. She killed the spider and took it to the hospital with her immediately. >> Read more trending news Doctors were able to stop the infection and keep her unborn child safe by using antibiotics. However, she does have a large area of skin on her stomach that died because of the spider’s venom. Doctors said they don’t want to fully treat the wound yet because of the baby. Originally, the plan was to evacuate the wound and then look into skin grafts once the child is born. Now, Butler’s doctors say the wound needs to be evacuated sooner. They will wait until July 10 when the baby is seven weeks from the due date. Experts believe she’ll be strong enough by then to be born early, just in case anything happens during the procedure. A Green Country entomologist said that Oklahoma’s mild winter caused more dangerous insects to come out early. Experts say people should take precautions against insects while outside, but that there isn’t much to be done indoors but have homes sprayed. The Centers for Disease Control says that even though people fear bug spray with DEET is bad for pregnant women, it’s actually recommended with the same precautions as those who are not pregnant or lactating.

Wow. Don’t mess with a pregnant lady or her purse. A woman in North Carolina is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon after chasing a man down with her SUV who she says stole her purse! Witnesses say they saw the man, identified as Robert Raines, rummaging through Christine Braswell’s car in a Walmart parking lot. “When I walked out of Walmart, he had her purse and was pulling all of her stuff out,” Blake Bennett tells WCMH-TV. “Then me and my friend told him to put it down and ‘What are you doing?'” Braswell showed up and the man took off running with her purse. But she wasn’t about to let him get away. “Me being five months pregnant, I chased a little ways then come back, jumped in the car, threw it in gear and come across the curb and ran him over,” said Braswell. Raines suffered minor injuries and is now charged with felony breaking and entering. (VIDEO)
After months of tough talk about illegal immigration on the campaign trail, Donald Trump on Tuesday floated the idea of a major change on that politically explosive issue, as Trump made clear he was open to the idea of allowing some of those in the U.S. illegally to avoid deportation, remain in the country, and gain a legal status.
On Hannity, Trump says there's room for "softening" re: undocumented immigrants in the U.S. who have contributed to society.
In an interview with Sean Hannity that was taped on Tuesday in Texas, Trump moved away from the idea of deporting the millions of immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally, instead saying that only the “bad” ones would be sent out – leaving the door open to a possible path to citizenship or legal status for others.
“There certainly can be a softening, because we’re not looking to hurt people,” Trump said to Hannity.
Trump’s comments were just part of what’s been a several day effort on immigration, starting with a meeting Trump held on Saturday with Hispanic leaders, all of which seem to be taking him more to the center on that issue.
The apparent change from Trump angered conservatives, some of whom have been suspicious about Trump’s big talk on illegal immigration from the start.
“Hey Mexico, we won’t be needing that wall!” tweeted Rick Tyler, the former campaign spokesman for Sen. Ted Cruz. “Trump’s going to make Amnesty Great Again!”
“Donald Trump’s new tone on immigration is AMNESTY,” Tyler said on Twitter.
At a rally in Austin, Texas on Tuesday night, Trump made no mention of any change on immigration, instead taking Hillary Clinton to task repeatedly on the issue.
“Hillary Clinton wants a totally open border,” Trump said to boos at his rally, as he zeroed in on her immigration policy choices repeatedly.
“She wants catch and release,” said Trump, referring to the long standing practice where border patrol agents would detain illegal immigrants, but then soon release them in the United States.
“She is going to give a massive amnesty in her first 100 days,” Trump said – though he pointedly did not go into what his own choices might be on what to do with millions of people who are already in the U.S. illegally.
Trump once again used his Austin rally to repeatedly go out of his way to appeal for the support for black Americans.
“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton,” Trump said as he charged that Clinton “sees communities of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.”
