Remember the movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"? and how the dad cured everything from exema and pimples to broken bones all with a couple squirts from a bottle of Windex.  Well this true story has that beat.

A 43-year-old man is expected to make a fully recovery after initially treating a gunshot wound to the head for five days with an antibiotic ointment.

Alaska State Troopers say the gun went off as James Doppler was handling it last weekend. Troopers say his girlfriend urged him to go the hospital but he refused, believing at the time he didn't need outside help to heal the wound.

However, in the following days, he began experiencing symptoms associated with a gunshot wound to the head.  (wow, antibiotic ointment didn't work? ..go figure)

His girlfriend finally forced him to seek treatment Thursday at the hospital in Homer Alaska, where he is recovering.
