SPIDERS SET UP HOME IN BOY'S EAR!

I couldn’t believe it when I heard about Jesse Courtney, the little boy from Albany, Oregon who complained about a popping noise in his left ear. It seems that a couple of spiders had set up home in his ear canal! His doctor looked inside the ear and thought he saw something but was as astonished as Jesse when he syringed the ear and two spiders were flushed out, one dead and the other still alive! Jessie’s doctor presented him with the spiders (both now dead) in a glass jar as a souvenir of his experience! It just goes to show you don’t know what you’re carrying around!

Oh, wow...can you imagine! I don't know how my daughters would have reacted if a doctor fished spiders out of their ears...there would have been ear-splitting shrieks, for sure!

It's just too horrible to imagine Marion! I have a phobia of spiders at the best of times!
