Ironic Wounds...family Member States Away?
Posted 16 November 2016 - 12:08 PM
Yesterday I noticed a dime sized rash or something on my calf. I am familiar with how bug bites etc look on me- but it's just a red round , not swollen or itchy...thing? so, no biggee.
But talked with my dad last night and he had been bitten by a spider yesterday morning, and it freaks me out that his body is reacting to it pretty badly. and its on his calf. He is woodsy-(nickname joke.."I am just an old hermit up on my mountain hunn!")...it is festering on him-and big .... he's stubborn and blows it off but he is describing something like what fiddleback bites do-(I won't describe that; it's a nasty wound)..
But it occurred to me ~ I haven't had a little practically nothing round rash like this before.....and my dad got a bite in the same spot that is something he needs to address.....huh. sympathy wounds?! we live in separate states. ohhh dad!! stubborn!

Thanks for reading my rather unthrilling post! But geeze thats not fun having a scar from a bite. I have been lucky; I am veryyy allergic to mosquitos..one bite on my thigh or arm-it turns into a 4 inch blister of itching hell! (If I get alot-like camping , I take a children's allegra-it's strong enough for me to not go into weirder allergic reactions)...yah, living in the woods growing up I have had my share of spider bites, lucky no bad ones.
I posted because whether mine is a bite or what (we live in a city-but close to hills, etc- Jack London state park (hiking,etc)....it's just sort of weird my dad and I got bites at the same time ?! He officially lives wayyy in the woods in N.Oregon....Bears and such! But I hope he tends to his bite as it is pretty gross right now : (

I didn't know I had a 'real life dad' till my gram felt me old enough to deal-about age 12 she broke out pics of him & my mom. Mom NEVER spoke of him-as a little one I thought I sort of magically emerged from my moms belly button! LoL....but being somewhat in touch, perhaps he realizes he has a daughter, son in law, and 2 great young adult grandkids-he has pretty much missed & hardly knows. ..... *;*
