rrbrown is in the ER

Rich (rrbrown) a member and mod here stopped by my shop yesterday to pick up some turning blanks and a small burl I had set aside for him...

Well, he just txt'd me saying he must have been bitten by a spider while there (like my shop is the only place with spiders ) because he's in the ER right now being he's allergic and they make him very sick (never heard of antigens making you sick as opposed to an airway issue.)

So anyways, he's in the ER, but doing fine. So wish him luck and that he doesn't end up in ICU again... and don't give him any free wood

Sorry to hear, hope he gets better soon.

Get Well Soon RR.

So you get him all hospitalized and now I have to take up his moderating duties. Thanks....


Hope he's feeling better, allergic reactions can suck. Get well soon

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Thoughts and prayers!

You know, a wood shop is full of spinning things, blades, power tools....and gets bit by a spider.

All my best wishes for a speedy recovery. Ive heard of folks being allergic to lots of different bug bites. My daughter swells up like a balloon if bitten by an ant. For me its bee strings.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Just killed my 4th black widow in 2 years in my shop.
I try to make it a point to look before I grab, but... we all know how that is.
Get well soon rr, firemedic is making sure there's always work for him.

Socially unacceptable, Politically incorrect!

Sorry to hear the news. But, Rich is tough, and will survive. It's not much of a warning, but I read somewhere that no matter where you are, you are within 8' of a spider.
