    Dog bite

    I just saw this. So sorry about the bite. Was the dog tested for rabies? Did you call animal control? I suppose the hospital would report a dog bite. In this area, there are police/sheriff/animal control logs & dog bites seem to happen more than you would think, especially from pit bulls.

    The MD could have explained a little more. Regular clinics rarely give IV antibiotics. A hospital has the lab facilities to run a culture and do a quick gram stain that will show what the probable bacteria is, as well as give the antibiotic. The culture takes about 3 days but the gram stain results can allow them to put you on a broad spectrum antibiotic (covers a lot of types of bacteria). When the culture comes back, they can give you a more appropriate antibiotic if needed.

    The Dr. may have been blunt because many people ignore infections & they can become cellulitis then blood poisoning (septic shock).

    I hope you're doing fine by now.

    Dog bite

    Ouch! I'm sorry this happened to you Startingover! What a shock it must have been to be attacked like that. It's good that the IV drip helped though. Hopefully the neighbor does something so that the dog can't attack anyone again.

    wires for doorbell

    Are you sure the wires are for your door bell?, as these wires are similar to telecom wires used for the old style telephones. there should only be a live, neutral and earth wire for a doorbell, with a live return to the ringer from the push to make switch and the neutral and earth connected to the the ringer.

    Leaky Basment repair

    Also now turns out there is a problem with the sewer line. They need to break open my basement floor and run a new line under the footing.

    Basement Lights misbehaving...

    A bad circuit breaker or a loose connection somewhere on the circuit are possible culprits. You need to open up all of the affected outlets and switches and check for loose or burned connections. Start with the outlets close to the electrical panel.
