Myrna Sustains a Nose Bleed While On Plavix

You know it's Friday the 13th when Myrna, our HCM cat, which is on Plavix, a blood thinner-gets bopped in the nose with Da Bird-which has happened before-and sustains a nose bleed which won't stop. Cold compress, wiping her nose, holding her, and cleaning up the continuous splattering of blood whenever she sneezes-which I assume occured as the blood tried to dry up in the nose but it irritated the nose, causing her to sneeze, causing the nose to bleed again and blood to splatter EVERYWHERE on walls, windows, doors, floors, etc.-doesn't work so off to the vet you go where of course it doesn't bleed. But at least there's evidence of blood on her and her nose is swollen where she was hit. Got meds in case it bleeds again. Big SIGH-but small vet bill PTL!!  And Myrna ate well after, slept well after, and seems to be much better this eve. The pic is of her at the vet. The red is the blood on her nose.
