Brown Recluse spider

I need to explain my lack of in-depth posts over the past week.  I had a wonderful start to summertime.  Apparently, about two weeks ago, I was bit by a Brown Recluse spider.

I’ll spare you the details.

It wasn’t pretty at all.  It was enough to land me in the hospital late last week for a little over twenty-four hours on IV antibiotics and treated to a surgeon — well, we’ll stop there.
