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)
In a legal setback for the Trump Administration, a federal judge in Washington State issued a temporary restraining order against President Trump’s immigration order, putting the entire program on hold, as the legal fight intensified against the President’s efforts to temporarily keep both refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim nations out of the United States.
The White House vowed to appeal, labeling the ruling “outrageous,” but then quickly issued an updated statement which omitted that word.
“The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people,” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
But round one of the legal fight went to the State of Washington, which led the charge into the courts against the Trump order.
“The state met its burden in demonstrating immediate and irreparable injury,” said Federal Judge James Robart, who was appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush.
“In addition, the States themselves are harmed by virtue of the damage that implementation of the Executive Order has inflicted upon the operations and missions of their public universities and other institutions of higher learning, as well as injury to the States’ operations, tax bases and public funds,” Judge Robart wrote.
The Judge also spelled out a series of orders to insure that federal immigration officials observe his ruling, which many expect to be appealed.
“The Constitution prevailed today,” said Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson.
“No one is above the law, not even the President,” Ferguson said in a statement after the ruling.
The state argued in federal court this week that the immigration order was “separating Washington families, harming thousands of Washington residents, damaging Washington’s economy, hurting Washington-based companies, and undermining Washington’s sovereign interest in remaining a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees.”

There was no immediate reaction from the Trump Administration; the next legal step would be to appeal the ruling, or go to a higher court.
The U.S. Justice Department had argued that only the President has the authority to set immigration policy, and that the state of Washington had no legal standing to get involved in the matter.
In a court filing, government lawyers said it was also clear that Congress had given “broad authority to the President to suspend or impose restrictions on the entry of aliens into the United States.”
The Washington suit and similar legal actions by other states on the Trump immigration order were much like the legal effort launched by Republican states against various orders of the Obama Administration on immigration.
In that case, a single federal judge in south Texas put the Obama plans on hold; that order survived all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
