Morning update 11/17

De ja vu for me as I am stalking Dr. Kolar's office like I did when we first rescued her.  :)

I just got off the phone with Dr. Kolar.  He said he kept Sweetheart's leg unwrapped yesterday and she only licked it every now and then and she wasn't obsessing about it, whew!  He said the leg is looking better today.  He feels the only areas infected are where she has the open wound.  He said the swelling of her entire leg and paw was from her bandage being wrapped too tight last week.  Dr. Kolar said the swelling has gone done quite drastically and the infection in the open wound is looking better, whew again!

He said he will make a decision about the spay tomorrow morning (he will be gone tomorrow afternoon) but he thinks he will put it off until next week.  I would be relieved if he did put it off until next week.  I asked him if he wanted me to bring her home this week if he puts off the spay until next week and he told me he will decide that tomorrow as well.

I may go tonight to see her, I haven't decided.  I miss having her and her little smelly leg.  :)  If I don't go see her tonight and she has to stay at the vet's until next week, I will definitely go tomorrow evening.

Just wanted to keep everyone updated!  Hope you all have a good Wednesday.


  1. So glad things are looking up.

  2. Good news! I know how much you miss her. I surely missed my Dixie while she was at the vet for those 4 days. Now I really miss her, since she is gone to the bridge.

  3. I have been computer-less since Friday - and just read the blog - Holy cow! I bet your heart was in your throat before you got word today from Dr Kolar... So glad to hear she is doing better!! That's our Little Trooper!

  4. hahah her little smelly leg! you are going to be thinking of her as 'little smelly leg' for the rest of her time with you arent you! ;)

  5. Aww! I hope she does get to come home if her spay won't be until next week. What a relief that it's nothing too bad!

  6. Whew..that's good news! Hope she heals fast :)
