Look what happened to my son today *not for the timid*

He got bit by this monstosity !! It was half the size of dollar bill , we were outside playing in the grass when I heard my 20 month old let out a gut wrenching scream and I looked over and saw this huge spider run from his foot. I looked down to two bleeding fang marks and a swelling toe. After I got my composure I grabbed a cup and put it over it just incase it was venomous. I was so scared I couldn't even think to dial phone numbers. I gave him benedryl and called my doc. All is ok now, it turns out to be Wolf spider . DH took a pic of it before he sent him to his grave. I couldnt sleep knowing he was still crawling around. Here is a pic of the villain.
