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.
