This could be the same kind of spider (that's not a spider at all) that Ken saw last week, or a close relative.
The doctor visit went fine. It turns out that the replacement doctor is temporary. She's installing her practice in Romorantin, a town about an hour east of us, next month. So that leaves an opening for a new doctor. Our regular doctor is retiring, but if he feels better he may come back for a while. It's all up in the air.
