brown recluse kiss my a**!

So last night hubby & I spent 2.5 hrs in the ER. Last Sat. morning he was cutting down the ornamental grasses by our pool and when he was done asked me to look at his leg, behind his knee.
I told him it looked like the got some kind of bite- it was pink and about the size of a dime.

Sunday- the "bite" is now the size of when you put your forefinger and thumb together to do an "ok" sign.... hubby is feeling under the weather- maybe he is coming down with something???

Yesterday I get home and the red part is now about double in size and there is pink radiating around it about 4" all around- it looked NASTY! AND he felt like crap- said he felt like he was getting the flu- all achy etc.

I told him to get in the car- we were going to the ER.
He of course said I was over reacting.....

Guess what? They think he was bitten by a brown recluse spider....

he is now on an antibiotic and they did a lyme test on him "just in case". Poor guy!!!!!
