An update.

Cats have a venom in their sailiva.

All these years owning cats and I didn't know that.

This morning my hand suddenly started looking terrible, after looking really good all day yesterday and not bad when I first got up this morning. A trip to the nurse practitioner and I got an antibiotic shot in the rump and a prescription for an oral antibiotic. I have to keep my arm elevated to shoulder height today, so I'm typing this one handed. I go back tomorrow to see how I'm doing and maybe get another shot.

Today's word of wisdom:
Don't get bit by your cat. :)

Hey Gollum, get the cat!

Do take good care of yourself, love. I am thinking, hoping and praying for you.

Ouch! I think Bobby needs to go out for his baths from now on. I do hope you feel better soon and don't have to have too many shots for this.

And you thought Ted Nugent was making it all up when he sang "Cat Scratch Fever"? Ouch! Hope you're okay.
