Not my best morning...  
Skate likes to sleep on my pillow. Today he was particularly snuggly and relaxed with me, with his paws on either side of my head.

And then he had a dream.

When his paws started twitching too much, I jerked a little. This caused him to panic.

So, I'm wearing sunglasses to class today and am hoping to God my eyelid stops bleeding soon. Bleeding in class is such bad etiquette. At one point he actually had a claw snagged UNDER my eyelid 0_0

SO not going to LASFS tomorrow.

if worse comes to worse do the old tissue on the wound trick. Martin will know how from shaving.

I had this happen once but my kitty was sleeping beside me.

The main problem is because I know how filthy his little litter clogs are, so there's neosporin all over it making it harder to clot. My English teacher, bless her heart, let me leave early, probably because I was so obviously miserable. I felt like a naked troll in a beauty contest.

God bless her, my teacher let me leave early because I was being Obviously Miserable.

Goodness that's frightening! Good thing the claws didn't go deeper than the lids... but wow, what a rude awakening!

Yeah, when I felt his claw get stuck UNDER my eyelid and then found blood on my hand when I pulled it away, I was pretty freaked. I was actually pretty lucky it was only my eyelid. With the germs on his little litter covered claws, I could have lost an eye if he scratched it.

Super lucky you don't have any allergies. I know that my skin puffs up a bit if I'm scratched by a cat. Was your eye completely swollen? Has it gotten better?
Frittersfritters on July 26th, 2007 06:54 am (UTC)
I am actually allergic to cats, it got all swollen and pink. That's one of the reasons I was so upset at school at today.

Ouch! I hope it heals up with no long-term ill effects.

Last week's lasfs un-meeting was the one to have missed.
Frittersfritters on July 25th, 2007 07:40 pm (UTC)
I was planning on going last week, so since I missed it I was SERIOUSLY planning on going tomorrow until this came up. I realize it's just a scratch, but I'm just uncomfortable with being in public now.

Darn. Haven't seen you in a coon's age, and you're going to miss my Menace reading. Well, Joe Zeff is going to read it, but I wrote it. (But you never go in and do the meeting, do you? Never mind.)
Frittersfritters on July 25th, 2007 07:41 pm (UTC)
I do a couple of times a year, depending on mood. I'm there mainly to socialize, though, and it's rude to do that over the meeting.
hackmeister: Cartoon froghackmeister on July 25th, 2007 07:53 pm (UTC)
Too bad you can't come for whatever reason. Take care of your I.

Last week's "meeting" was contentless, with member participation eschewed, and I don't have much hope for better in the future. You'll probably find me in the meeting room for the Menace, and then out in the courtyard afterwards, or maybe the Library.

Will pray for quick and painless healing.

Thankies, sweets.

Eeeeep. That sounds aweful. The part I usually hate the most is that panicky feeling right afterwards.

I'm sure you'll do fine. Neosporin is the best thing.
Robyn Goodfellow: thingyrobyngoodfellow on July 25th, 2007 10:03 pm (UTC)
Grrr. Stupid me.

And feel better soon.
Frittersfritters on July 25th, 2007 10:46 pm (UTC)
I hope so. The last time I tried to put a second dose on, the whole scab came off and it started hurting and bleeding all over again... (TMI?) I want to put lots on because an infection in that area can be really bad and I don't want it to scar, but I'm concerned if I put any more on it will keep it from healing... Confused...
Robyn Goodfellow: pokedrobyngoodfellow on July 25th, 2007 11:49 pm (UTC)
I don't know about anyone else, but no, NTMI. I've had people gross themselves out, trying to gross me out while I was eating.

I'm going to guess that it's bleeding again because of where it is. You move your eyelids more often than you think. I'd say to blot your eyelid with a clean, dry (or very lightly damp) washcloth until it stops bleeding, then put some more antibiotic cream on it.

And blood washes out best in cold water... duh, you probably already knew that.
postrophe on July 26th, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
There's an antiinfectant eye-drop thingy you can get (and I have a still-good dropper bottle of it left over from my own eye-related event...)
Frittersfritters on July 26th, 2007 06:55 am (UTC)
I'm uncomfortable with using other people's antibiotics, but it's really sweet of you to offer.
Tanya: Tweety Staranyagotr on July 25th, 2007 11:11 pm (UTC)
Oh man! I remember those days with my cats. I'm sorry to hear about that.
krystalemerges on July 26th, 2007 01:03 am (UTC)
ewww...feel better and all the requisite murmerrings, I hope it heals quickly and that was very nice of the teacher to let you leave early...
Frittersfritters on July 26th, 2007 03:08 am (UTC)
It was great of her, and pretty much right when I assumed I was there for the duratiob...
perlee_grace on July 28th, 2007 08:23 pm (UTC)
Yikes! You might want to see a doctor, just in case. :-\
Frittersfritters on July 28th, 2007 08:31 pm (UTC)
I started to get a little sick, actually, from the crud that got put into my system, but I'm better today so I think I probably won't need one ^_^
