damned spiders

So late this evening he realizes why his elbow has been hurting all day.

Spider bite.

This is nothing new.

It's happened about a half dozen times over the years--crawl spaces.

The first time he had a hot lump like this and a line spreading up the arm.  At Urgent Care, the doctor looked his limbs over minutely, saying nothing.  Finally Jay asked what he was looking for?

"Needle marks."

Sigh.  Not a junkie.  Just a plumber bit by a spider.

Last year the doctor sent him to a specialist about a ganglion cyst.

Spider bite.

Onward to tomorrow.

Love, Val
