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)
With some fresh momentum courtesy of the FBI’s extra review of Hillary Clinton’s emails from her time as Secretary of State, Donald Trump has also benefited from some message discipline of his own, as the Republican nominee has so far avoided going off course in the final days of this campaign.
“She is the candidate of yesterday,” Trump said of Clinton at a rally in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. “We are the movement of tomorrow.”
While Clinton has scrambled in recent days to find some way to put Trump on the defensive, Trump has managed to avoid any unforced errors that so bedeviled his campaign this year, as the GOP nominee has kept his focus on Clinton.
“She lied so many times to the FBI,” Trump said of Clinton and her email investigation.
“Hillary is the one who engaged in a corrupt pay for play scheme,” Trump added.
Clinton – appearing with Alicia Machado – and Obama both hammered Trump today for his treatment of women. So far, he has not taken the bait
Since stepping all over the introduction of his “Contract With the American Voter” almost two weeks ago in Pennsylvania – when he made news by vowing to sue the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct – Trump has embraced his teleprompter and has remained on message.
After the FBI’s announcement last Friday that it was taking a look at new emails held by a top Clinton aide, Trump has zeroed in on that matter, Obamacare, illegal immigration, and jobs – and not made news at his rallies with any off-pitch outbursts.
Trump’s campaign unveiled a closing television ad on Tuesday – “Choice” – which tries to boil the campaign down to a simple either-or decision.
As for Clinton, she tried to bait Trump by having the Miss Universe that Trump had once labeled, “Miss Piggy,” join her for an event in Florida, as Clinton tried to turn the campaign back to his statements about women.
“He thinks belittling women makes him a bigger man,” Clinton said at a rally in Florida. “He doesn’t see us as full human beings.”
The Clinton campaign also unveiled their own new ad as well – focusing directly on that issue – Trump’s treatment of women.
President Obama also lent his voice to that effort, as he started four straight days of campaign stops for Clinton.
“This is a lifetime of calling women pigs and dogs and slobs,” Mr. Obama said told a rally in Ohio.
Trump, though, wasn’t responding to Clinton or the President, as better polling numbers rolled in for the GOP nominee again on Tuesday.
“Now we’re one week away – one week – from the change you’ve been waiting for your entire life,” Trump said.
