So For Today:
Yep the day started off great. We had breakfast together. I messed with the computer some then went down to see the cats and talk to them some.
I noticed some trash bagged to go out. So out the door to the trash can. WHOOPS, today is the day to roll out the trash. So I started to the road..
Ahead of me I saw a ‘waving’ neighbor’ walking her Pit Bull. The bull is about 85 lbs and pulls the lady around. As she got close and started to speak when the danged dog lunged for my throat pulling lady but only caught my chin and the edge of my throat. I pushed him away; then he latched onto my wrist. He turned loose to reach for a better hold thank goodness the lady had her footing and dragged him back a few inches just as those jaws snapped.
I was in shock. All that lasted less than 10-15 seconds probably. I looked down at my wrist and said, “OH SHIT!”
I grabbed some paper towels coming thru the basement, and they were soaked by the time Sherry saw me.
Anyway, the blood had stopped and Sherry was getting ready to take me to the hospital. I went next door to Tell neighbor Richard about the dog, because he walks that way often.
I was settling down a little on the short ride. I felt the small cuts on my chin and throat and it hit me how close I came to actually dying. If that dog had got my throat I would have been gone. On my throat the cut where the teeth brushed appeared to be done with a razor blade. That is some sharp teeth.
After 6 hours in Emergency, and a visit from Animal Control, I left with only a suture in my chin and one on each end of the 1¼” jagged cut. They did not sew it up ‘because it needed to drain, it was DEEP.’ The other 4 punctures were left alone.
The only time it really HURT was when the nurse cleaned it. That was a BIG OUCH! LOL
Funny thing isn’t it, A few seconds just walking to put the trash out, can CHANGE your day. But in the end I am alive and feeling good.
PS: Even a dog on a leash can be dangerous……
