So I just saw Sweetheart's leg for myself this afternoon. Les wasn't lying to me when he said the progress from last week to this week was simply amazing. To go from open, dry bone and necrotic tissue to a small scab is a miracle (there's that word again). Dr. Kolar said if it wasn't for her other open spots on her leg (which are shrinking rapidly) that bandage could come off. As it is, I doubt that bandage will be needed to terribly longer. Again, SOOO very thankful for this little girl's ability to heal, if only we could bottle her healing power we would live forever. :)
Les said Sweetheart was being a good girl for him today. Played some with her chew toy Jackie and was lying in her crate sleeping nicely today. The weather is Oklahoma has cooled off fairly nicely so now she is able to stay outside for a longer period of time. They all love the cool breeze while lying in the fluffy grass.
I am excited to get her spay done but I am kinda wishing it wasn't coming so soon because I want to be selfish and foster her for longer. :) Plus I hate that we have to put her through surgery and pain when she is feeling so good. However, I know the spay is absolutely necessary and it is the best thing for her.
As always, thanks to everyone for keeping up with our little Sweetheart saga. She is truly loved by everyone in Oklahoma and around the world and for that I am so very grateful!
Les hopes to get some pics and maybe a video for your enjoyment tomorrow sometime. As it is I talk to him a few times each day and get all the updates. Course, greyhounds sleep more than they are awake so those updates aren't always the most fascinating. :)
Hope everyone is doing well!
