You know how they always say "make it a birthday weekend you will never forget"
Yea...that clearly happened this weekend
Sunday was a perfect day. Were talking 72 degrees, small breeze and nothing but sun. Sean has been itching to work on our backyard. We received patio furniture from his mom and we have a large port that we plan to decorate and make it a nice hangout.
Both of our pups were outside enjoying the day and one of our cats had ran outside as well. Long story short, Sean grabbed the cat to bring him back inside, dogs scare the cat, cat bites down on Sean and wouldnt let go. So, Sean comes in with a deep hole in his hand from the cat. I take him to the bathroom, run water over it and then pour some alcohol over it to try and get out as many germs as possible.
We had planned to take him to the doctor the next day but it seemed like his hand was getting worse and worse. So off to the minor med we went.
This was taken like two minutes before he passed out.
Yea, rough night.
The doctor told him that the bite was turning into an infection and that if we see red lines on his forearm the next day, go straight to the ER.
Luckily, I had taken a caregiver leave at work and I planned to go later in the afternoon. But Sean woke up and we noticed two red lines going up through his arm, right under his armpit. Off to the ER we went.
Five hours of waiting, they put him on two IVs and said it was a bad bacterial infection that had gotten into his bloodstream
(between the rocks, dirt and cat mouth...ehh)
They were concerned with how quickly it spread but luckily after the two IVs, we noticed his lines were getting lighter. Yesterday they were completely gone. Praise Jesus!
Today he is back to the doctor for a checkup and hopefully we will hear nothing but good news.
Definitely a crazy but blessed birthday weekend
and yes, I will never forget it :)
