Yikes! Your spider bite sounds pretty nasty :O
Have you ever taken echinacea tinctures? There are some alcohol-free versions available. Echinacea has been clinically shown to increase immune function by as much as 30%. I’m on it right now for my latest “might be” UTI. I take 1 drop per 2 lbs of body weight, 4x a day (about every 4 hours). I also found some Vit C powder that is free of sweeteners and all major allergens, including corn. The brand is Carlson’s. It *may* have an alternative starch like tapioca or something, but my total daily amount is no more than 1/2-3/4 of a tsp and I’m only taking it while my white blood cell count is high.
Have you taken your temp? We tend to run low-grade temps if we’re fighting even small bacterial infections.
You probably know all this, but I just thought I’d mention it 🙂
And thanks for the encouragement. Although, most of my little feet are more along the lines of THUMP THUMP THUMP BANG instead of pitter patter at this point, we’re *all* excited for some sweet little baby toes, again.
And good job on the from scratch biscuits!
