Spider bite, three days later


If it looks bad in this photo, think how it looked like before I received medication yesterday morning!

Wow - that looks shocking. Who would have thought such risks exist to a bibliophile? So how did it happen?

Oddly enough, sitting at my computer. I live in a wooded area, so there are all sorts of critter around here. But I've been bitten before, just not as bad as that one.

Believe it or not, I used to be outdoors much more than I ever spent time indoors, but age and injuries from sports playing led me to withdraw into the life of a book reader...alas :P

It didn't look like anything at first until I realized you were not bending your elbow...

That is bad - hope it is improving daily.

Thought I would see this question earlier but have not so...

Can you climb walls yet, shoot webs from your wrist, have a desire for tight-fitting red and blue clothes?

Larry said...

Well, I do have the ability to hyperextend my left elbow at will, but outside of that, no special powers, alas...other than that of having that area itch more than usual :P

Slightly better and no real chance of the skin rotting, but it'll be a while before it clears up, it seems.

Man, that looks painful! Hope it gets better soon!

It was irritating more than painful. For some reason, it itched LESS than if it had been a chigger or mosquito bite. Go figure, huh? :P
