    I only saw an attractive lady with a wonderful smile in the photograph. I did not notice a PW loader.

    Pat,

    You are too kind! She is my youngest daughter and a lovely young lady who is a nurse by profession.

    That smile could melt you enough to lose your shoot-off against her!

    Nice going, Jack.

    For those unfamiliar with the saga of my new cat, here is the story and pics.

    Nice little cat. Persian red.
    mia_2008_030356.jpg
    She was a cattery cat of 3 years and prob had 4 or so litters. We had her spayed and attempted to give her pain meds. I corralled her so that my wife could give her an oral injection of pain meds. She fought me and I fought back. The she issued the coup de grace and sunk her long eye teeth int my R index knuckle. I let go. (Gee Jack, that's brainy). That was at 8:30 at nite on Saturday about the 25th of Sept. By Sunday AM it was obvious that I was seriously infected and needed medical attention. I did that and the doc gave me the most likely antibiotic. By Monday the hand was pomegranate size and color. Tuesday AM I go to my regular doc and he takes a look at it and says "you need a hand surgeon and today". I had one of those for my left index repair of a couple of years ago and got in to see him at 1PM. At 5 PM I was in prep and the cleanup of the infection was done at about 7.
    mia_2008_030397.jpg
    I awoke in a private hospital room. Strange room. When someone would come in they put on a fresh throw away gown and gloves. Couple wore masks. They slid food to a table and left. I was in isolation. By the 3rd day the doctor came in and said he had good news. It was a rare virulent bacteria, but they had a antibiotic and I could stop with the IVs and go home an take oral meds.
    The meds worked as I could feel the pressure subside and see the red racing stripes go away.

    Came back to see the doc about a week alter and he saw that the surgery to close the wound did not work. the sutures pulled thru the punky flesh. He sewed me up again and had me come back in 5 days. The sutures had again pulled thru. Now I had a open would with tendons exposed.

    mia_2008_0303100.jpg
    Tendons get their nourishment from live flesh surrounding them. If exposed they get elastic and useless. He wanted to do a skin graft And I looked at the inflamed open wound and told him let's wait a few days till the inflammation goes down. He was skeptical. I went home and used tape to close up the hole in my hand. A week later just a small hole was present and a small area of tendon exposed. I went for a second opinion to my regular doc and he said get the skin graft. The next morning I was in prep again and got the skin graft.
    mia_2008_0303101.jpg
    That was about 2 weeks ago. Yesterday they took the stitches out.
    mia_2008_0303102.jpg


    The hand has constant pain. Adn very sensitive. But it is what it is and will heal in its own time. I can type again (well if yo call it that)and can wield a knife in the kitchen. Adn my energy level has returned.

    I can set and release a trigger, but the recoil will be too much to bear. I did shoot the weekend before the skin graft and got used to the pain. I shot with my good friends the Demullings at the MplsGC club jackpot shoot. Missed the pie shoot.

    So there we are. Nearing the end of this saga. But the pain will be around for some time. Hands take a LONG time to heal. Be prepared for that if you ever have hand surgery. My left index rebuild took all of 18 months before I could forget that it was a pain. I have no idea how long this will take. But I will shoot come spring, creeks not a-risin...

    If you have never noticed... I live on a creek And it is a-risin now. Up about 8' over normal

    I must concur with Pat's comments about the winning photo.

    The cat story.... well I have heard a lot of less than positive outcomes on cat stories from several of my veterinarian friends.... but this one is one of the more expensive sounding ones.

    Shrek. My guess (have not seen a bill yet) is that it will be 20 grand. Two full operating room deals and one on site at the docs office.

    Jim. I had a lab. Strangely it wanted to retrieve my neighbors one year old. I was lucky to have a big voice and call him off just 15' from the toddler. That would have been bad. That was a trial dog washout. He had the vision and the concepts of blind retrieves but once he found the bird, he sauntered back. Nice dog after that. Hips put him down.

    MIA,
    I really am speechless about your cat bite. I really hope your hand
    heals up and everything turn out right. Please, do not mess with your
    cattery cat any more.

    P.S. I have no advise to give you, I just feel sorry for your hand.

    Hope to see you on the Trap Line.

    Later,

    Birddog
