Man, Ron I hope you ok!
I had one crawl up my arm while I was changing. It was on the towel that I had wraped myself with and at first I thought it was a fly as I was about to swat it I saw the damned thing going up towards my neck. I don't remember how it ended on the floor flatened but I think I had one of those Matrix moment.

Yeah, he got me high on my left arm just below the shoulder. The pain, which was breathtaking for a while, is slowly subsiding, but much of my arm and the outer half of my hand are numb. It will all pass in a couple days. My dog's been stung a couple of times too, he didn't seem to enjoy it any more than I am.
