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.

Raines suffered minor injuries and is now charged with felony breaking and entering. (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump acknowledged on Tuesday morning that he did share intelligence information with top Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting last week, declaring that “I have the absolute right” to inform the Russians about information related to terrorism and the Islamic State.
“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do,” the President tweeted, making his first comments on the latest major story to engulf the Trump White House.
Mr. Trump’s tweets included no attack on the news media, or on the Washington Post which first reported that he had given highly sensitive information from an intelligence ally to the Russians.

“Last night a stream of WH officials were sent out to blast WaPo story as false. This morning, Trump says it’s true,” wrote reporter Greg Miller on Twitter.
BREAKING: Trump tweets that he shared 'facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety' with Russian officials.
In fact, the President in his Tuesday morning tweets did not attack the Washington Post story – and other news organizations which confirmed the basics – which had been labeled as “false” by some White House officials on Monday night.
On Capitol Hill, Democrats blasted the President for his handling of classified information.
“President Trump has long been careless with the truth, but now he appears to have gone further,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).
“President Trump shouldn’t worry about leaks. He is his own leak,” said Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL).
But there were also Republicans who were not pleased.
“Sharing classified info to one of our enemies is a threat to our national security, troops on the ground and relationships with trusted allies,” said Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).
As for leaks, the President added another tweet on that issue – but again did not say the original story was false.
I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community…..
