Re: Copperhead Bite

Thanks folks! I think prayers are all that can help w/the recovery at this point.

I did read that the antivenom is almost always a synthetic one that's good for copperheads and rattlers. Nasty drug and once used for a snakebite, they will not administer for a second bite later on in life, b/c the complications that can arise are worse than the bite. So if my wife ever gets bitten again, she's toast!

Thanks again guys,

BH

When was the last time you heard somebody say "Go ahead, it's a free country"?
