Bandage change 9/29

Everything went well with today's bandage change.  Sweetheart has officially gained two thirds of her body weight since 8/13.  She weighed in at just over 51 pounds today.

This was taken 8/13. Dr. Kolar believed the bone had been
exposed for at least 7 days due to how dry it was.

The same wound taken 9/29 and in Dr. Kolars word's about the progress
Sweetie has made in 6 weeks (Amazing.)
I believe that Dr. Kolar had his doubts about how her leg would heal and
is shocked at how well it has healed in 6 weeks. 

This is the inside of her leg around 3 weeks ago.

The inside of her leg taken 9/29 it still has a way to go but it
looks so much better.

Dr. Kolar has said that Sweetheart is now healthy enough that we should be able to have her spayed in 2-3 weeks.  I really think that she has surprised the staff at Prague Veterinary Clinic with her recovery.  It's so nice to see the smiles on their face's when I bring her in.  They are truly awesome people!  I will keep it short since jess isn't around and I can't seem to think of anything else to say.



  1. Les, this is absolutely awesome!!! I am amazed at the change just since last week. Thanks so much for the updated and comparison pictures.

    Hey, if you need any help with Sweetie or the hounds, just give us a call. We're happy to help out in any way possible ... and we'd take her back in a heartbeat!

    We're praying for Jessica, all the family members, Deb, and you too.


  2. Oh wow! What an amazing recovery! I didn't realize she wasn't spayed yet. Poor baby! Thank goodness she didn't end up expecting puppies on top of everything else. I'll have my fingers crossed for her to make it through that with no problems!


    It's because of loving people like you that Sweetie is healing so fast and so well. Congratulations on giving her the life she so richly deserves!

  4. This is fabby news. Forgot just how bad that leg was.

  5. Wow! I too had forgotten how bad the original wound was. That is amazing how it has healed!

  6. i think we ALL are amazed at her recovery! What a trooper. It was great to see the "Before" and "Now" Photos. really puts all of her healing into perspective!

  7. HOLY MOLY....amazing seems like such a small word when you look at how far she has come....a miracle for sure. The family who adopt her are going to be very lucky indeed. Rhonda, do you have your application in yet ;)
