The video above was taken a couple days ago and is a compilation of all of my girls playing. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Today Les and I took Sweetheart into Dr. Kolar's for another bandage change. The entire leg is healed except one spot. This spot it taking longer to heal but it is bright pink and is bleeding well when he removes the bandage. Dr. Kolar didn't see any infection when he cleaned the leg and he feels all is going fine. He put on a fresh Silverlon bandage and this Silverlon is a smaller size since she has just the one spot left to heal. Dr. Kolar didn't wrap with gauze, vet wrap and tape as high up on her leg as he has had to before. I am glad that she has a little more of her leg exposed to air and I am sure she is too.
We weighed her and she weighs 53.4 pounds! When we brought her into Dr. Kolar's August 13th, she weighed 31.4 pounds. Our little Sweetheart has now gained a whopping 22 pounds in two months. Astounding, stupendous, amazing, awesome and a miracle. I could go on and on but needless to say, her recovery has been remarkable. I never ever would have thought that two months into her recovery she would be this far along. I am so happy each day she plays, runs and eats well. She is a complete joy and her personality is really starting to shine.
The photos below are of her leg during today's bandage change. After her vet visit today, Les and I stopped by my parent's house so they could see her. Some of the pics were taken of her walking around their yard being cute.
I hope everyone continues to enjoy her blog and updates.
