107 is nothing to be cavalier about.
That's a very serious situation, good luck.

Definitely Not good! At 107, I'd be inclined to proceed directly to the ER of the hospital where the surgery was done.

After having to take the phone from Steph and yell at the nurse to tell her I am not an idiot and I know what a fever feels like, they called in a prescription for a UTI (common after this surgery she said). Temp went down to 102 so they want me to monitor and they will call back in a couple of hours. 

 

Steph finally got to go to work. I hated to have her late on her second day.

 

And eventhough I am laid up, work continues in teh yard. Ben cam by to get my little trailer and a huge compressor tank that has been in my way for about 8 years, but I couldn't bring myself to toss. And Tim is bringing that tiny little tractor ( I forget the name of it) for Heath.

I would have but getting in and out of the Blazer is hell on me. I am too tall to slide in and I can't bend enough to fold up. I have to sit on the rocker panel, get my head in side, then lift the rest of me into the seat. I wish the suburban was ruining.

Around one I fell asleep. Heath was laying in the bed with me. I woke up to him screaming. Gunner had bit his face. There wasn't much I could do so I called MawMaw Wander - neighbor- and asked her to come over. I did manage to get Gunner on the chain He will not be coming back in. Wanda took Heath to her house to clean him up and check him over. She said he wanted to run off and get the toys rather than be doctored on. Kid is tough.

 

After Wanda left Heath crawled under the bed with Carmel. I could hear her stub of a tail beating on the box spring. I don't know what happened with Gunner, but it didn't make him afraid of dogs.

After getting a better look at Heath's face I think Gunner is exonerated. Guners teeth are too long and too close together to match. It looks more like he got his head caught in something and forced it out.We cant find amything that matches

I think he got his head caught up in our box spring.The marks are all perfectly spaced. Gunners canine teeth are so long that if he had them in something deep enough to leave marks from the shorter ones, the person would be cut to the bone. I never realized how long those teeth were. Almost a full inch. I couldn't get him to sit still long enough for a picture.'

 

the rest of today I haven't done much. Steph left me kind of jammed up with stuff on the bed, and obstacles to get around. Between Heath and I we have gotten them taken care of. She didn't let either dog out long enough. One peed and the other pooped in the house. I did my best cleaning it up. She will have to finish it when she gets home. 

 

I feel a tiny bit better. I did finally poop. Laxative is working. Perhaps a bit too well, By the time I got my carcass hoisted to an upright position I didn't completely make it to the toilet.
