Well, as some of you know my bun bun daughter Georgie girl had to have a minor surgery last week and so I have been playing DR. Mom for the past week. That means cleaning the wounds on her side, first we flush with iodine and then we peroxide them, then they get dried and triple antibiotic ointment gets applied. Then it is time for some pain medication, it is in a syringe with NO NEEDLE and I just put it in her mouth and squish it on her gums. The last thing we do is take a piece of an antibiotic pill and I hold her facing me and shove it behind her front teeth, she spits it out about 10 times and then finally takes it.
Well, today I thought I would be different and put her on her back and give the pill to her and before I could get my finger out of her mouth she CLAMPED down on my right index finger like it was a tree branch and WOOPS she almost bit the end of my finger off, she bit right through the middle of my fingernail and HOLY CRICKETS, she turned lose I guess because my blood did not taste that good after all and I hollered like wild indians had me at the stake.
Needless to say we were up and dressed and out the door headed to the ER in a flash.
That is the damage that was done to my poor finger but thankfully all I had to do was get a shot, get it cleaned and the DR put some kind of glue and strips to hold the skin in place, he told me to take everything off in 2 days and cut the nail off and that he would rather not put in 5 or so stitches because of the swelling. He says the end of the finger and nail will just die and finally fall off and that you should not be able to tell a thing.
So my advise to your...........if your bun bun daughter says NO she does not want to take her PILLS today, you just go with the flow and keep your finger in tact.
