Remember my post in late June about my first ever dog bite from an overly aggressive Aussie mix? After babying it with hydrogen peroxide, triple antibiotic ointment, and changing the band-aids multiple times a day for 3 weeks, it’s finally healed!!! That was a pain in the butt.
Before and After
Overall, I got off lucky. But I’ll tell you, it’s hard to keep a finger wound clean as a professional pet sitter!
I know it’s whiny to complain about a small finger gash, but I think it was just a straw that broke the camel’s back with me. With my back issues and just generally feeling less energetic, I think the dog not liking me and then having to baby my finger just got me a little depressed.
I’m still feeling a little lazy day to day, but I am back to general contentment. And I’m really loving to play with our new cat! She’s a real sweetie. I think I’m going to start volunteering weekly to help me get out of my own head again. Now to squeeze that in somewhere, LOL.
Do you handle injuries pretty well? Do you age gracefully? I seem to be a whiner…
