I was on the way to work this morning, at 0450, about 4 miles after I got on the expressway, I-10, I felt a slight thump on my left forearm with a slight stinging sensation .
Got to work and when I got into a lighted area, I found 4 bats impaled on my mesh jacket .
A coworker was a former registered nurse and strongly recommended that I go to the ER at the local hospital .
I scraped the bats off of my mesh jacket and put them in a plastic bag .
Went to the ER, I had a few punctures and scratches in the impact area .
I was given a couple of injections and prescribed oral medication .
Awaiting tests on the bats to see if they had rabies .
