Pit bite

Mama got bit by a Pit Bull mix yesterday….she is self medicating.  When she came home with a bloody towel, I knew something was wrong.   She immediately started with Epsom salt soaking, Betadine and Neosporin.  She said, “That &**&&*&*&*& dog bit me!”  I though my  ears would fall off…heh heh.   I have determined that while it hurts, she is glad the dog didn’t bite her face.  SInce  the bite marks look gross, Mama thought a gauze wrap would be more civilized.  Everything is clotting up nicely, she says it is weird to be back to basically one hand for the time being.  He …(and here’s the joke….his name is Lucky), selected her left hand to taste.  Boy,  Mama was really hopping mad, mostly at herself.  She had to go next door for our sweet neighbor to open her bottle of wine cause the bottle had a cork.  Her dinner was food that you could cut and eat with one hand….actually, there is a lot you can do with just one hand, like take a bath and most importantly, walk me.  She feels a lot better today, even though we woke up at 3:30 am.  I got my walk first, then Mama took hers.  She came back and said a dog was barking at her  while she was pounding on, and she told him to STUFF IT ! Whoopsie.  I think Bit by a Pit has a real rhyme to it and said so, but Mama kind of gave me a look that shot that one down.  Silver lining….Lucky’s rabies shots are up to date.

    The hell with the food. Get a bigger bottle of wine and you can handle it one handed. Nah, get better. What made that Pitty do that?

      Mama loves all dogs, even when they bite her. She still thinks Pitts can be sweet…they are just extra protective. Somehow, she violated the code. Oh well, she says, lesson learned. She is taking it all on herself. Kismet, you just go right to the heart of the matter. We like that approach. Take no prisoners.

    Hard to like this. Mama needs to go to the dr for a shot. Dog wounds are the worst to get infected said our Mom’s dr when Mom’s hand and Brother’s mouth clouded over a UPS package.

    Kismet, you are my kind o’girl. Lucky was new to this home, and Mama thinks she might have gotten too close to new owner. But who knows for sure. She says their teeth are not as sharp as Scottie teeth….another silver lining…or maybe not.

    SB PLEASE tell mama she MUST go and get an anti-tet shot from the doc or ER. Even if that doggy is up to date with Rabies, she still needs the anti-tet for all the other nasties that are in the dog’s mouth. Mama, hope you are soon better. Thinking of you
