It's Been An Interesting Week...

...and I apologize for not posting.  I was away from my 'puter, and trying to do e-mail with the wrong hand on a Kindle just doesn't work for me.   I couldn't blog, but I did get pictures while I was in Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon for a cat bite on my right hand.  I have been on IV antibiotics for a week, and will be for another week, but will recover.  Day 5 the Doctor started squeezing pus and corruption out of the hand, and he took me into surgery on day 7 to clean it out.  The next day he unwrapped the hand and reached for the gauze packing that he had ram-rodded into my hand.  He said, "This is going to feel funny."  It was more like hilarious, and everyone had a good laugh out of it.  Here are some of my best pics in a slide show.

Holy Crap!

That looks painful.

With that much swelling I think I would embellish the story a bit with a rattlesnake or a kimodo dragon.

Good grief - that was awful! Which cat was it?

Ugly wound there. An angry/surprised cat and a rotating fan are two things not to stick your hands near.

How soon until you can play the violin again?

Wishing you a speedy recovery, David

OUCH! Good thing you got it taken care of when you did, or it could have gotten a lot worse, although it's bad enough as it is.....

It was Big'n, the one that lost an eye. He's not quite as tame as I thought.

Hey, I'm typing!
