Wednesday night (technically Thursday morning) I woke up at 4am to a breeze across my face. It was really weird, but the only way I know to explain it is - a breeze across my face. So I sit up in bed and put my glasses on. As I am looking around I see something flying around in the hallway. Jaxen sleeps with a lamp on, so I could see what looked like a shadow flying around. I thought to myself that it was really weird that a bird was flying around in the middle of the night but I let it be. It was 4am, and I half thought I was just tired, sleep deprived and a little bit crazy. FYI - Nik was out of town.
Thursday, when Nik returned home, I told him that I thought a bird was in our house the previous night. Thankfully he didn’t call me crazy, but did tell me that maybe it was a shadow from a large moth or something. Made sense to me.
That night while Nik was putting Jaxen to bed and I was in the living room, nursing Zane, a bat flew in the room and was flying circles around! I hollered at Nik but he did not hear me so I took a video of it on my phone (partially because I thought it was crazy that a bat was in our house and partially to prove that I was not crazy the night before!). By the time Nik came down stairs, the bat had flown elsewhere and I forgot about it. Until he came back!
Eventually (after freaking out a bit) we trapped the bat in Nik’s office and then he went in
After speaking to the Health Department, it was highly recommended that since the bat was in my room (for who knows how long) that I get a rabies vaccination as soon possible. So Friday was the first dose of the vaccination.
Here is a hospital selfie - trying to hide my fears and be strong!
Which after it was all said and done - was much better than my last hospital visit
where they discovered I had MRSA and had to drain my sore!
And here are 4 of the 5 needles that they had to stick in my body.
Thankfully, I have had no side effects or reactions to the shot.
I still have to go back 3 more times. Yuck.
So that’s my bat story! I’m just adding it to the list of the random and weird things that happen to me.
