The last several months have been emotionally charged for us and I really needed some rest and relaxation, so when our new neighbor invited us to a Christmas pageant that she was in, we happily accepted.
I was looking forward to a night out when nothing was expected of me but to sit and enjoy. At the appropriate time I changed into a bright green shirt and added sparkly earrings and felt fairly festive. Then we decided that since we'd be out for a couple hours, we'd better let the dogs out before we left.
Of course, nothing has been running smoothly lately and when Sebastian came back inside, his incision was bleeding. It's been bothering him for several day, probably itchy, and he must have rubbed it on either the bricks or the fence. Don't you love when they decide to handle matters themselves?
I got the bleeding stopped with pressure without getting blood all over my green shirt. The stitches were all still there and it didn't look like he'd done much damage. I put a little antibiotic ointment on the stitches and then it was time to leave.
I tried to concentrate on the show and the music, but I kept wondering what Sebastian was doing to himself and if he was leaving a trail of blood throughout the house. Finally, about 40 minutes into the show I asked Rob what he thought and he had been having the same thoughts. We quietly left and hurried home to find the pack greeting us at the door. The incision had bled a little but had stopped on it's own and I didn't see any blood on the carpet so things are good.
