We’re not quite sure what happen, but we noticed Alex had a huge bump on his head after church on Sunday. His teacher said she noticed it, but it had gotten bigger. Our best guess is that he got bit in the night and it didn’t start swelling up until we got to church. We noticed that at each bite location there were two marks together. We’re assuming it was a spider…my thought was “that must have been a HUGE spider!) Anyway…here’s some pictures.

His pediatrician said it was just an over-reaction to an insect bite. After some prescription strength antihistamine the swelling started going down. By Wednesday, he was back to normal! Now to figure out where the spider is and where it came from! Gives me the shivers thinking about it…have I mentioned I’m not very fond of creepy crawly things?
