|Curse you, CUSTOM BOXES, why don't you do what I want you to do .__.|
Okay, at the beginning of april Pancho my Rotti bit me. His dew-claw on his front leg was infected, my vet thought it was just the claw so he got antibiotics and I the order to bath the foot in curd soap. Which I did, not knowing how terribly infected it actually was. Panchi growled, winced and then bit. Yeah I know, never ignore a growling dog but I was almost done sooo... I didn't wear a jumper so his teeth hit my skin directly leaving 2 deep holes. No shaking, no tearing he actually just snapped. I had my face directly next to his so he could have severely injured me pretty easily but he didn't, good boy <3
Anyway, as I can't see wounds without being close to fainting I quickly bandaged the whole thing up, trying to "squeeze" the fat that got ripped out back in-which of course didn't work xD I was quite happy that it didn't bleed-now I know this is nothing to be happy about as all the bacteria will stay in the wound :/ The next morning my arm was red from thumb to elbow and it hurt like hell. I went to the doctor who put some stuff on it, gave me antibiotics and that was it. The arm wasn't red or hurting anymore in no time which I found pretty awesome, blessings to whoever invented antibiotics. Everything cool we thought it was just the horrible smell of the wound that drove me crazy. I then decided to go to the hospital and let them take a look at it. Within 5 minutes I was taken care of by a doctor who found this wound of disgust so awesome that he called in his interns o_O I found myself being surrendered by 4 interns, 3 nurses and him, making me feel a little like a monkey in the zoo xD But everybody was ever so sweet <3 They tried to open the wound with a local anesthesia which didn't work at all due to the infection... I felt everything and painful is-not quite the right word here *sob* Soooo they had to operate it and I had to stay in hospital for 3 days-very much to my disgust. In this short time, my dog Alfie was so stressed out that he got 2 epileptic attacks and Panchi was a bag of misery who refused to leave "our" bed at home.
I did get a lot of "good" advice from all kind of people who don't know my boy: put that dog down! Rottweiler are known to bite! You must be crazy to own a dog like that! Yeah, sure, haha. I will kill the dog I love to distraction because he told me that what I am doing is hurting him? No way EVER, it won't happen. On friday after I was allowed to leave hospital again we grabbed Panchi and took him to the clinic too. Only on the x-ray the whole dimension of his infection was visible. The bone had already started to dissolve, the pain must have driven him almost crazy! They had to amputate his thumb, poor darling :< When I bathed his foot, he could have totally flipped, he could have turned into a berserk biting everywhere in his pain. But he didn't!
I went to the clinic again this morning to have the wound checked and tho it looked great on monday, today it was horrible again -__-" My doctor opened it and put some kind of beads in. I just really hope it will look awesome and beautiful tomorrow because if not they'll have to operate again *sigh* So far 2013 has been a really great year...not :/
