Mysterious Bruise

The other morning I woke up and immediately discovered that my right arm was very sore. To extend, it hurt a lot. I could feel very distinct pain from my elbow pit to my arm pit. It kind of felt like a sore muscle, after working it harder than usual, but different. As if, perhaps, I had torn a muscle or something. Something felt bruised inside. I complained of it to Aaron, but since he had just done a major workout on his upper body, and ALL of his muscles were sore, he felt little sympathy for me.
The pain has relaxed since then, but today I noticed something else. A huge and ugly bruise! I don't know if you can see it in the picture very well. But it goes from my armpit to my elbow pit, following exactly the line of pain.

So...weird. I did have to do a blood draw the other day, and in this arm. I think it must be related, thought nothing like this has ever happened. I bet it follows the vein.
Impressive, no?

Do you have somewhere that you can have it checked, or at least ask a question? Where did you have the blood draw? They may be a good place to check. It would pay to have it checked. Love, Dad

Oh I am sure it has to do with drawing blood. I have seen that happen to a few people. It is strange though.
