So, we got a doggie a couple of nights ago. In my stupidness, I tried to introduce one of the cats to the doggie (we named him Rufus...fyi). So, I'm holding Kira as she's hissing and crying while Ruf kind of stands there curious...anyhow, Kira was having none of it, and went psycho on me and tried to jump out of my hold, biting my finger and clawing my face, not to mention my shirt! Oh well..right? Evidently not. Overnight my finger got huge and it hurt. Before I knew it my whole arm was hurting and aching and sure enough, I see some red streaks starting up it. Ugh! Around 6pm last night I headed to the ER. It was infected. Got a round of IV antibiotics, some Lortabs, bandaged up, and was on my way! Got home around 9pm, relaxed for a bit, took some ibuprophen, and started drinking (I didn't take any of the Lortabs, so I was cool) around 10:30. Went out and rang in the new year with Kara and friends. Yay!! Screw you bacterias!! Happy New Year!!
