Both are festering in my sweet little Nonikins.
First, the abscess...
I will spare you the most gruesome, puss-filled, gaping hole details. Suffice it to say that my little sweetems has an abscess the size of a ping-pong ball very near where the sun doesn't shine, or shouldn't shine anyway. Her poor tush has seen more than its fair share of daylight over the weekend, and more than a fair share of people have returned the favor to the tush. Antibiotics, pain reliever, sits-baths, warm compresses, and a great deal of attention were prescribed and I can report that they are working.
Secondly, the attitude...
I promise you I am trying to temper my reaction to the fist clenching, keening of "AAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIII-DAN!!!!", feet stomping, wailing "No one listens to me" like you own the cleaner aisle of Walmart, and the dreaded back talk with the knowledge that there is a gnarly, rankling pathogen wedged betwixt her cheeks.
Really I am trying to be patient.
I can't help but wonder though if they make an antibiotic for attitude?
