thanks for this story, Sharone, I did some reading up in Wikipedia

The brown recluse bears a potentially deadly hemotoxic venom. Most bites are minor with no necrosis. However, a small number of brown recluse bites do produce severe dermonecrotic lesions.

on the other hand, this spider is

rarely aggressive, and bites from the species are uncommon […] The spider usually bites only when pressed against the skin, such as when tangled within clothes …

so, it’s cool — you were never in any immediate danger :-)
