Episode 51: The Shocking Consequences Of A Cat Bite


What Happens When You Get A Cat Bite?

It’s Not As Simple As A Tetanus And A Couple Of Stitches

Soooo, I was bleeding a bit (okay, a lot), my hands were throbbing, I knew I probably needed stitches in my left hand and my right hand was throbbing, but I thought that a few stitches and a tetanus shot would do the job.

Three days, 8 lots of IV antibiotics and a 90-minute surgery later…

Join me as my brother, Alan questions my sanity (he doesn’t like cats to start with) and finds out exactly what happened and why.

Changing the dialogue around menopause and midlife.

As a Podcaster I create a safe space and community for the stuff of Midlife. I provide more than a hub of information I am changing the dialogue around menopause and midlife for women with fun, love and laughter.

After (hopefully, successfully!) raising four kids, being married for 30 years, going from regular month-to-month pay cheque jobs to creating a multi-million dollar property development business (and a number of other businesses with varying degrees of success and failure), to going broke and starting again…

…there’s a heap of experiences and life lessons just waiting to be shared.

Life is about learning from our mistakes and the heartaches we might encounter, but it’s also about having fun and making sure we’re surrounded by laughter…

Which is what you’ll find here in the podcasts & blogs: the highs and lows, successes and failures, sprinkled with fun, love and laughter, because it makes life just so much brighter.

This is all about sharing those things rather than keeping them to ourselves, listening to “ordinary” women’s stories and relating to them, finding common ground and inspiration.
