No alarming headlines, and before I continue, rest assured all dogs and humans are well.
Late in the afternoon yesterday, Lou somehow managed to stick a screwdriver in his hand. Because of the blood thinners he is taking, and the fact that we don't need an infection starting, we were once again off to the Emergency Room (it seems to function as the local Urgent Care facility as well). Even though it was fairly busy, he was quickly seen and taken care of. A good cleaning, a tetanus shot, and a couple of stitches, and we were back on the road to home. The nurse told us to come back to the emergency room in 7 days to get the stitches out. I don't think they do that at Seattle Grace.
When I showed him the photos I was posting, he barely looked at them – just said, “remember this when it's your turn …” But, since I really just have atmosphere shots, I think he will be a good sport. The PA who stitched him up said you'd be surprised how many people make him stop so they can take a photo and put it on facebook. At least I didn't do that.
This is three unplanned events – let's hope that is the magic number.
