#1 here. Tommy and I came home yesterday afternoon to find a message from Dr .C saying that the lab results had come back. It was good news! There is no sign of anything nasty. The lab confirmed that it had originally been some kind of impact that had eventually led to intense fibrosis with a very deep tissue bacterial infection. He may need to go on a longer course of antibiotics to make sure that it's all gone but he is now officially on the mend! She did say also that all his licking did NOT help. Hear that, Mr. Tommy?!
The boy himself is in great form. I have mostly managed to keep the cone off him the last couple of days, and just have had him wear a T-Shirt. When the grass outdoors is very wet, I take him out with no shirt. Here are a few photos:
Yesterday, the weather was really lovely and we had lunch in town with a friend, siting in an outdoor café. Tommy really enjoyed it!
Thank you all, once again, for all the support during this rather lengthy episode!
