I got back from my meeting and her nose was a mass of blood. :sad: It's worse again--the top split open and drained and the bumps along her lips and on her chin are draining now, too. I suppose that's good-- that it's getting rid of the infection--but it's scary.

This is how she looks now since I cleaned her up some with a compress.

Tomorrow I'm going to call the vet and see what they'd recommend for pain meds. Much as I hate to abuse her poor tummy with something above and beyond the antibiotic, this has got to really hurt! She doesn't seem to be whiny or pacing or showing discomfort, but don't you think that must be painful? :sad:
