I had the brilliant idea to try and close her mouth with my bare hand. My right hand. The hand which serves most purposes in my life. Bad idea! She most likely thought it was the stray cat attacking her and she bit me. Hard!
I am on 4000 mg (yes, you read right: four THOUSAND) of antibacterial meds per DAY (making me a bit of a sleepy head) and, to control the pain until the meds actually kick in, 1000 mg of Tylenol every 3 hours. Wanna post much? Meh, not really.
You see on the pics that my right index is quite swollen, but that is nothing! I had the brilliant idea to call my kinesitherapist yesterday morning. She gave my finger a lymphatic drainage and reduced the swelling by at least half. The redness was below my knuckle yesterday morning where today, it just below the wound and, even better, above the knuckle. You can see that there are two points of teeth entry. And two infected sites. I spare you the details. The pain? Ridiculously excruciating considering wound size. And, mostly, considering it was induced by a stay-at-home, scaredy-less-than-7-pound cat.
So I apologize but my posts are delayed because I'd rather sleep right now and typing makes my finger quite painful and makes my heart beat in it :o) TTYS!
