I'm blogging in my underwear

What are you wearing?

I woke up this morning with a small spider bite.

12 hours later, it's swollen to the size of a quarter and itches like a fothermucker.

Am I being a giant sissy, or should I be worried? I'm going to take a benadryl and put some aloe on it.

ADDED: This was the worst of it. A day later, it had mostly dissipated.

& btw, how's the spider bite feeling/looking now?

this morning it's a dull ache, and the lesion itself is really firm.

Maybe baby spiders going to crawl out of it.

But it hasn't gotten bigger, so that must be good.

Check the middle of the spot. If it's soft, that probably means something is digesting your flesh. I'd see a doctor just to be on the safe side. I had a spider bite that required removing a huge chunk (the size of an orange) of my leg.

Scrub uniform-so how did this turn out? I'm delayed commenting, so today I'm doing a "blog-by" and running thru the posts I missed...hope your leg is okay!
