I was very upset yesterday and cried all day and couldn't talk about this but today is another day. Saturday night, my oldest daughter was at a friend's home. They have a Rottweiler and it was very friendly. My daughter was petting it all evening. She went to leave but went back in the house to say good-bye to the dog. She bent down to hug it and it bit her badly in the face!
She was bleeding profusely so they called the paramedics and she was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The dog nicked an artery but they stopped the bleeding.
Then they sent her to another hospital because the other hospital had a plastic surgeon on call. He spent 2 1/2 hours stitching her face and she needed 200 stitches. She was released with morphine pills and is resting today.
She was blessed because if the dog bit deeper, she could have bled to death. It could have ripped her lips or nose off or blinded her in one eye. So, I'm very thankful today.
I firmly believe in prayer so, if you are a praying person, please pray that these wounds heal with no complications and no scarring. I've seen that happen before. The plastic surgeon felt confident that she would heal nicely but I've seen a picture of her and it looks bad right now. But, then again, she is swollen.
I thank all of you in advance.
