Bacteria, Bravery & Bingo
What I managed to get was that they grew a very naughty bacteria from my swab. It was quite a shock to the lab/vet people how badly behaved it is. Apparently it is resistant to all but one of the medicines they could give me, including ear drops etc. Luckily, the one that works is the one I’m already on and don’t mind taking. So I have to take more medicine for a few more wheeks and then they hope I will be all better!
I have to be really brave at the moment because Mummy has to clear the icky pus out of my ear. It really hurts and I make a lot of upset noises, which in turn upsets Mummy. I know she is only trying to help me but it does hurt. I actually bit her knee a couple of times today while she was doing it. One bite has left a bruise and Mummy told me off.
Do you have any tips for how to be brave? Mummy tries to distract me with veggies but as the veggies aren’t actually hurting me I prefer to attack something that will cry out the same way I do. Mean but true.
Have you ever had to be brave when you are in pain? How did you cope?
ps. I have decided that I wouldn’t like to keep my bacteria as a pet. Ill leave growing and caring for it to the lab/vet peoples.
