I decided to be intelligent about this….
The weather here has been hot and humid for days. I had some outside work that I wanted to finish, so I was up early and out to the garden as soon as the sun rose on Saturday morning.
The humidity was absolutely stifling!! It wasn’t long before I was longing for the air conditioning of the house, but I persisted in doing what I felt needed to be accomplished that morning.
Before long, the sun was high in the sky, and I was dripping from every pore. Oh, I don’t think I’m going to finish all that I wanted to!!
Back inside, take a quick and cool shower. Aaaaahhhh!! That feels better!! Clean the house, laundry done and now time to sit down and relax a bit.
But, what is this? Something bit me on my ankle while I was outside working!! Itchy, red and starting to swell!!
Just a mosquito bite, I tell myself….
Three days later, my ankle is swollen, red, and not only is my ankle area itchy, but I could not sleep last night due to my entire body itching.
When I got up this morning, there is a hard, hot lump on my ankle and the redness is starting to extend itself up into my calf area….
Now, I’m beginning to wonder…..was this truly just a mosquito bite? Or was I bitten by something else….perhaps a spider?
Suppose I’ll have someone check this out today and hopefully get to the bottom of it!!
See you tomorrow!!
