Weird  
My right arm seems to be attracting all the trouble lately. I woke up... saturday morning i believe, to find what i'm guessing is a small insect bite on my upper right arm. It seems bigger/more annoying than a flea bite, and i haven't noticed any fleas on my kitty lately, so i'm guessing maybe a spider bite?

In any case it seemed like a normal annoying insect bite for all of saturday. But then for about the last 24 hours my arm decided to swell up a little. Not a lot, but enough to make it look like i'm flexing the bicep on that arm _all_ the time. Which is just kind of weird.

Presumably that will go away pretty soon, otherwise people will start yelling at me to go to the doctor again :) (Actually, it looks like it's already gone down a little bit from the high point last night.)

In other news, the reason why i'm behind on posting is because i spent most of the last four days at AX, so there will hopefully be posts upcoming about that soon.

You know us so well....

Mostly you just want to make sure that there isn't an infection that is spreading/cropping up in other places. Fever => go to doctor/urgent care after hours.

In the mean time, be kind to your immune system. Feed it fruits & veggies and health food and stuff.

Well no fever yet :)

And i'm 99% sure that the upper arm thing is just an insect bite, not some migratory infection bursting out from the inside :)

*cough*No comment on the fruits and veggies thing though*cough*
