Thread Starter 
You were all correct in what you were sayuing in respect of getting my thumb which Vicki bit yesterday morning checked and as usual, I bow to all your better wisdom. That includes the nurse and everyone.
The strightening thing was taken off this evening and I have had a injection into the thumb as it has gone sceptic.
If anyone gets bit by a cat - do as you all say and get it checked. I have a week of antibiotics to take now.

Gonna first have a scotch (large) and hopefully goto sleep.

Thanks for the advice

I know you've had a rough day to end all rough days. I hate to tell you this, but you might want check the label on your antibiotics or check w/your pharmacist before heading for the scotch bottle. Some antibiotics shouldn't be taken with alchohol-it reduces their effectiveness.
Please take care of yourself...I hope you can get some good rest.

Kev, there are some antibotics that can make you deathly sick if you take alcohol with them! The one that comes to mind is Flagyl. You should have gotten a info sheet along with your meds, please take a look at that.

Glad to see that you went to the Doc for that thumb! Take care...hope that hand is feeling better soon!
