I decided that I was going to give him a bath and then put him on a diet. He's never had a bath before, so I wasn't expecting it to go well. That was an understatement. The second I put him in the tub, he started making these noises like I was stabbing him to death. And about ten seconds later, he bit my hand so hard that I felt his fang puncture DEEP into me and he just held it there. After a few seconds I got my hand free, and I was shocked. He's never bitten anyone before, let alone ME. And the puncture wound was really deep. It didn't look bad from the surface, but I saw how deep his tooth went into my skin.
|It looks like a small scratch, but it was really deep!|
I immediately flushed it out with peroxide. Shortly after, the pain set in, and it hurt so bad that I sobbed. I know that cat bites can be bad and almost always get infected, so I decided to go to Urgent Care. This was at 3:00, and Jerry had to leave for work at 4:45, which I hoped would be plenty of time. I sat in the waiting room until almost 4:00, and then I just had to leave without seeing the doctor. I didn't have my cell with me, so I couldn't call Jerry. When I got home, my hand was hurting so badly that Jerry told me to go back and he would just use a vacation day today.
I went back to Urgent Care, and they gave me a tetanus shot and antibiotics. My left arm is throbbing from the shot, and my right hand is in horrible pain from the bite. My hand is REALLY swollen now, too. Oh! I asked the medical assistant if she could tell me what my highest recorded weight was, and it was 254. I've always thought my highest was 253. I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but my "dream" goal can now be 127 (to be half my size) instead of 126 :)
Anyways, I actually got to go on a bike ride sans kids today! I rode 7.3 miles, and WOW--what a workout! I always thought biking seemed so much easier than running, but that was tough. I was hoping to do 10 miles, but my thighs were killing me (in an awesome workout kind of way).
I rode on some roads that didn't have shoulders, and that was terrifying. I'll never do that again! I kept praying I wouldn't get smoked by a car.
|Across the lake is the peninsula I like to run on|
|This road didn't have shoulders, but I didn't encounter any cars, either.|
|This road was TERRIFYING. Tons of cars, no shoulders, and a shitty road.|
We just went to a graduation party next door, and they have slices of cake the size of my head. I'm dead serious! You all know my love affair with buttercream frosting... well I split a piece of cake with Noah, even though I was SO tempted to eat a whole piece. They had some of the food catered by one of my all-time favorite restaurants. Jerry and I used to eat it all the time when we were fat. I hadn't eat it in 2 years. Today I took a small scoop of their mostaccioli and savored every bite. Very satisfying! Again, tempted to eat more, but I didn't.
What is the most tempting food that you come across at parties? Mine is definitely cake! Especially with lots of frosting.
