Bites

Somehow someplace I got a bug bite.  My foot is not liking it at all.  It is swollen and painful.  The swelling is confined to just one foot/ankle and Far Guy says it looks like he can see a small spot where whatever bit me.  I am elevating it when ever possible and waiting for the swelling to go away. Near as I can figure I was bit on Sunday afternoon when I was working upstairs….most likely a spider.

Gone buggy

I am supposed to bake today and I will, probably just a little slower than normal.

I will live to see another day.  Rest assured if it gets worse my husband will drag me to the Doctor.

I will share this from a friends Facebook page.

Did you ever hear the tale of the Indian chief who found a rattle snake dying from the cold at the top of a mountain? The snake pleaded with the chief to carry him down the mountain so he could get warm and recover and live. The good hearted chief took pity and took the snake down the mountain. There the snake gave him a deadly bite. The chief asked the rattler how he could do such an evil thing. The rattler replied "you knew I was a rattle snake when you picked me up"!

Morale: compassion should not out weigh common sense.

Me being the smarta$$ that I can be most some days left a comment.

Never trust a talking snake.

  1. Indeed, I have made it a fundamental principle of my life never to trust either a talking snake or a singing banker. Hope your foot is better soon.

  5. Someone shared black walnuts in the shell repel spiders. I have not tested the theory but there was a huge article on the internet so it HAS to be true.

    Heal quickly.

  6. I saw that on FB, too - - - it made it here. It is fantastic.
    Bummer on the insect bite. Why do these things have to happen when we are most busy?
    Have you soaked it any? Some insect bites I get, I have to "make" drain so they recede. Of course I cover them with Neosporin and a band-aid at that point. It is the only way some of them will heal.

  7. I like your moral to the snake story better! Hope you get your baking done. In my experience, spider bites last a loooong time. I got one one my thumb near the nail this summer and it took weeks for the swelling to go down. Doctor said, ice it. You could try that.

  10. I sometimes will get a flea bite from the little dog. That is when i know that it is time to treat him. But he didn't have fleas this year. I do say things to snakes and I really don't like when the slither into places in my basement wall.

  13. As far as I remember, I've never had a spider bite. From reading all the comments here, I'm glad! Certainly go and see a doctor if it gets worse.

  19. A spider bite? Did you catch it and take a photo of it before you beatthecrapoutofit like I did? Sorry it's on your foot, but I don't like where my bite is any better. :-/. Take it easy and let Far Guy draupg you to the doc if necessary. Happy Thanksgiving!

  20. That is really too bad about what seems to have been a spider bite. From what others are saying, spiders can inflict quite a jab. I hope the swelling goes down soon and you can get your Thanksgiving prep done.

  21. I hope the bite fades quickly. Sneaky bugs!
    Well, and sneaky snakes, too. That's what did in Eve. LOL! ;)

  22. I'm glad Far Guy is keeping his eye on you. That bite could be serious. I hope not.
    This is the second time this week I have read the rattlesnake story. The first time it was a slam against compassion for refugees from Syria. Just sayin'
