Here are some of her latest aprons......love them!
Last week, one of my dear sweet cats, Buddy, was hospitalized with a complete blockage - he was near death. He survived and came home and on Friday morning, I was trying to pill pop him his meds and he gave me a big, strong bite on the finger....OW!!! I was happy that he was feisty, but OMG, the bite REALLY hurt. By Saturday morning, it was swollen and bright red and had spread to my whole hand (pictures below are on Friday night...by the following morning, my right hand was twice this size). My doc on Saturday morning took one look and told me that this was VERY serious. I guess that cats - all cats - have a specific bacteria in their mouths (Pastuerella). I was given a super strong big dose of antibiotics in a shot in the behind :) and was told to elevate my hand and put on a heating pad all weekend. If it was not better on Sunday, I was to go immediately to the hospital to be admitted because I could lose sensation in my hand or worse! Yikes....this was scary stuff - all because of a cat bite. I am happy to report that I am now on the mend, although I am on strong antibiotics for 10 days and will have to continue to have the area monitored.
And this is my beloved little culprit, Buddy. :)
I will be back more regularly with blogs on my weight loss (more than 50 pounds so far!!), recipes that are super yummy, crafts, giveaways, and of course more beloved cat photos of my four-legged furry children!
