Becky, our Vet, called last night to check up on him. She called in a round of antibiotics, as she says that the secondary infection is what we need to watch out for. When I gave him his aspirin and Benadryl this morning, I could feel a huge lump under his chin. Apparently, like humans, doggies have a lot of lymph nodes in their neck area. I don't know if you can see the swelling in the pic below, but in person, it almost appears as if he has goiter!
He really is a beautiful boy, and I hope this bite won't leave scars, but if it does and that is the least of our problems, then I am most thankful.
Yesterday afternoon, when I knew that Barker was out of the woods, so to speak, I finished up these three "cell cells":
I like them all very much and am pleased at how easily they are now coming together. I use mine constantly and find it a great help in locating my cell rather than when it used to be in my purse....especially when someone calls and I am on the road (I know that that is a no-no, but sometimes it is almost a must!).
It is cool and overcast here today....but still no rain. We are really into a drought mode in northeast GA. I did get some nice pics of my pool patio garden, which is quite lovely in the spring.
Here's a bit of Baptisia and my favorite foxgloves. My good friend Joan gave me some lovely peach foxgloves a few years ago, and I think they have cross pollinated with my purple ones to make the pretty mix in the front.
Peonies to come:
and just a few more foxgloves:
I had to get down on the ground on my tummy to take these last couple of shots, and don't you think I wasn't giving a lot of thought to that old Copperhead!!!
