Grandma an' Charmee's bite update

Mom an' Grandad went to the hospital right after Mom arrived back in Sandy Eggo ... Mom was worried 'bout Grandma 'cuz Grandma had to stay in the hospital for FOUR days an' had surgery on her thumb to suck out the poison from Charmee's bitey. Grandma has a bunch of black stitches on her thumb an' her entire hand is wrapped in gauze.

It turns out that Grandma takes on most of the responsibility for the bitey 'cuz she'd been makin' laps for Charmee an' then gettin' up to do stuff. She'd done that a bunch of times an' Charmee had been tryin' to get his beauty sleep, but couldn't. He was fed up an' told her so by bitin' her HARD on the thumb. Grandma was apologetic to Charmee an' her forgave her for bein' wiggly. Essentially, he'd been trying to tell her to stay put.

So Grandma is recuperatin' at home an' Charmee's been catchin' up on his sleep. Things are gettin' back to normal (Mom goes back to school tomorrow). Grandma gets her stitches out in a couple of days. Sigh.

We hope Grandma's thumb heals quickly. Glad she and Charmee aren't enemies.

Four days? For a bite? Wow, that's some bite! We're glad your grandma is doing well now.

BTW, just as a comment on Canada's health care: Our mom's cousin had a mastectomy last fall (her second one) and she was sent home *that day*. (It was to remove the second, non-cancerous breast, as a precaution.) So there's absolutely no way that anyone would be kept in any hospital in Canada for 4 days for a bite, unless there were other life and death health issues.
