Cookie and I, out of habit, tried to pull away CJ by grabbing his nape. He usually lets go of Cookie once I grab him and Cookie would just walk away. But that time, Cookie didn't walk away and instead kept on taunting his dad. So CJ reacted and bit my leg (instead of Cookie) which was between the two of them. I have a puncture wound on my right leg, behind the knee so we rushed to the ER at UST to get treatment.
Being my first time at the ER, I was pretty calm. Even as I made the call to Myke to tell him the news, I was still making jokes and was being sarcastic. He he.
I got back this morning since I was feeling better. The swelling was mostly gone except on the bitten area. I had my clearance but was advised for a follow-up consultation with the surgeon.
SLICE IT UP
The surgeon took a look at my leg and told me that there's pus in my wound. The sorrounding area of the bite was swollen but it was hard to the touch. He told me it's because of the pus and that he would have to incise it to drain it out. He forewarned me that it's gonna be painful since he can't use anesthesia as it wouldn't have any effect. I was scared. I've never been on an operating table EVER. I didn't have anyone with me and I felt like crying but I gathered my courage.
Well, it was painful but not to the extent that I'd be screaming inside the OR. I just laid there muttering "Ouch!", "Hooo, ang sakit", "Ssshh...." (I never got to finish the word. I don't want to cuss in front of the good doc :P). The actual skin incising didn't hurt as much (I felt the blade) as when the doctor was applying the antiseptic on the raw wound. Yeeouch! But, I still manage to get up and walk out of the OR without shedding a tear. I feel like such a bad a**. Ha ha!
I still have to go back tomorrow to see if the operation worked. I just want my wounds to heal quickly so I wouldn't have to wear a bandage when we have our e-session. Right now, I'm gonna get Myke to buy me some spaghetti since I've been craving for some. Ha ha!
