Hi all — first, THANK YOU for all your kind, caring comments and emails. It’s so comforting to know that people care so much. I’m really touched. You’re all such good friends — and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
Home care on these dogbite wounds is proving a challenge, but one I’m up to, with a little help from the family. We’re in a sort of limbo right now, waiting for the blood cultures to grow (or not, hopefully) and for continued improvement in the healing process. I’ve no fever any longer, and I’m feeling good. The pain is minimal; don’t even need much in the way of pain meds now. So I think I’m on a good track, here, barring setbacks.
Logan is under county quarantine here at home — the county requires a ten-day quarantine to rule out the tiny possibility of rabies, even though he’s current on his vaccinations. We’re trying to make these days as peaceful and happy as we can for him. In spite of Logan’s longtime strangeness, he’s been a dear friend and a Good Dog throughout his life, trying SO hard to do everything right. I’m determined that we do everything right for him, too. He’s had a good, long run.
I’ll post again with updates as I can, but honestly, one-handed typing is WAY overrated.
Thanks again, friends.
