Hey, Semper. How is your DW doing re:dog bite? Hope there is no problem. I've been thinking about her and wish her well. Sandy
Hi Ms. Sandy. Better half is doing MUCH, MUCH better. Thank you. The human body is an amazing thing in how it can recoup and recover. She saw a specialist on 2/18 (exactly a month after the incident) to see if surgery would be needed. The consensus was to wait 4 months to see if the extra tissue gets resolved on its own. I hope it does.
Thanks for asking. Mighty nice of you. :-)
Thanks for the update. I'm glad your wife is doing better. I often think of what happened to her when I bend down to snuggle with my dogs.
A niece was bitten badly on the face by a dog when she was a child. Now that she is grown you would never see it unless you were looking for it and knew where it was to begin with. Of course a growing child is less likely to have a scar if it is properly cared for. Good doctors are so important in all such cases.
If there is a visible scar, it can be covered by some very good cosmetics designed for that purpose. I have found good results for my own scars, received over a lifetime, with the new poly scar creams, gels and patches. Most recently with the scar from carpal tunnel surgery, even I couldn't tell where the incision was made and it was 3.5 inches long.
I'm glad she is doing so well and has had good treatment. Sandy
