Yeah, I didn't kill the spider (as far as I know). I have a rule that they have their home (outside) and I have my home (inside). If they are in my house, I kill them.

Here in Southern MN it's time to lay down a light spray in the bedroom or put up with nightly bites. Sheesh, that creeps me out to think those guys can get under the covers, bite and make a getaway without getting squooshed. How do they do that?
I think you have something else biting you at night. Spiders don't eat human flesh nor suck on human blood. They have no reason to bite you and most spiders couldn't bite you even if they wanted to. There are a myriad of bugs that do though. Spiders aren't one of them.
