My poor Sarah was bitten by a rattlesnake today. I'm visiting in California so my husband had to deal with it by himself. I gave him the vet's name and told him to call ahead in case they needed to get the anti-venom from somewhere else. It turns out they had it and he got her there while she was still able to walk okay. My husband came around a corner to see Sarah's nose just two inches away from a diamond back! He yelled and she backed up and he thought she was okay but noticed about 15 minutes later her nose was all swollen. That's when he called me. So anyhow, she's at the animal hospital and has been given anti-venom (which the doctor says she can only have one time in her life - I didn't know that), and they said they'll call us in the morning to tell us how she is. They could not say yet that she would be okay. I sure hope so. I'll let you all know when I know how she'll be.
