Again, thank you on behalf of Pucci...and thank you on behalf of me. The little rascal is forever plastered by my side.

My shot continues to help - not 100% by the end of the day if I've moved around a lot, but certainly better than before.

Pat - I'm so happy you are improving. Although I don't have a pool at the house, I would love to do aqua therapy again but can't with this wound. I'm not doing ANYTHING that would jeopardize the wound!!!

Like TexasSue, I almost had a panic attack when I read the title of this thread. Not that being bitten by a scorpion isn't something to worry about, but I was fearing the worst before I opened the thread. Taz and I send our prayers that Pucci will recoverly quickly! But with such a loving mama.....Pucci is sure to recover quickly and lap up all the attention. Where was he when he had the run-in with the scorpion?

Nita - this happened in the dining room. A friend alerted me to seeing a "bug" - it was the scorpion near my foot - and I saw poor Pucci holding up his paw, immediately putting 2 and 2 together. I killed the *%(@ scorpion, scooped up Pucci, grabbed my cell phone and called the Veterinary hospital to alert them, and off we flew. Thank God, Pucci was saved.

At this time of year.....scorpions is one thing I always look out for. Don't go into a dark room without turning the light on first! I'm so glad Pucci survived his encounter and hopefully next time (well, hopefully there won't be a next time) he will still clear of them!

It was near your foot? Oh gees, scary for both of you! Glad you are both ok. Does that mean there is a scorpion nest or something near you, or are they just all over the place in AZ?

This episode has brought back memories of a night not too long ago, when I heard an unfamiliar growl and a snap from another room, and out walks Kiefer with a rat in his mouth! Thankful Kiefer was the one doing the biting.

Yes, it was easily within crushing distance of my foot - but I was more concerned with poor Pucci holding up his paw. I knew what had happened. I made short work of that scorpion with my foot.

I think I'll pass on asking what Kiefer ultimately did with that rat.............

Sorry to hear that Pucci got bitten by a scorpion and is now recovering.

Hoping that your wound is getting better as well.

Prayers for you both.

Thank you, Yonnie. Thank God, Pucci appears to be no worse for wear. As for me, the leg wound is so deep - it will take a long time to heal.

How is your recuperation? Obviously - and happily - you were well enough to travel!
