When your bun bun daughter says NO PILLS mom that is what she means.

Sunday, November 03, 2013

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.

    That looks so bad and painful. I guess the little girl got her point across big time.

    Oh dear....Georgie must be feeling quite contrite (or I hope so). Mama was just trying to take care of him. Naughty girl!

    How ARE you dear Lady Nims????? That looks ever so painful and I'm wiggling in my seat just SEEING it!

    I hope the two of you are recuperating nicely and no more contention over pills to be taken young lady, err bunny.

    Oh, my! You poor dears! Yes, we need to take the cues from our fur-babies. They have all sorts of ways to tell us things, and sometimes we just don't take the cue. I hope that finger heals up quickly.

    That must have really, really hurt! I found the best way to give meds like that is to crush it and mix it in applesauce; put it on a large tablespoon and hold it until they lick it all up. Why would the vet not give you liquid meds anyway? emoticon

    Ow, ow, ow, ow, OW, OW, OWwwwWWWwwwWWWwwwWWWwwwwwww...!! SHEESH, Georgie Girl what the DANG SKIPPY were you thinkin'?!! She must 'a been thinkin' 'bout Frankie n' his flyin' plane n' how he's on his way back home in his contraption - glidin' from island to island in his little remote and how he's gotta STOP & recharge his batteries every so often, but how he'll never give up till he gets back to her and the last thing she wanted (disturbing those thoughts) was her mama chokin' n' gaggin' her with YUCKY tasting medicine.

    Oh, my WORD, Nimmie, that looks sooo PAINFUL!! Naughty Georgie, NAUGHTY BUNNYKINS!!
