And the bandage is gone!

Posted by teri in Uncategorized    

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, after an interminable time, the bandage was removed Monday morning! And it’s been long enough that the fur they shaved initially is more or less back. Hooray! After the vet, I dropped her off at home and headed to work. When I got home that evening, I checked her elbow and there were pink spots, places where that newly-healed fragile skin was being rubbed raw. Freak out! But then I figured out that it was probably (hopefully) just the (highly textured) area rugs that were the culprit. I found what soft blankets I could (that weren’t in use because there are extra people around the house that for some reason think they’re entitled to blankets just because they’re humans) and covered the offending rugs, at least in the places she spends the most time. Seems to have worked – I checked her elbow again last night and it was still pink but no worse and maybe even better than Monday. A little hard to get a good look, she is awfully wiggly.

And however inconvenient I find the extra humans around the house, she’s enjoying the company. When I get the pictures out of my phone, the reason will be clear.

Hugs all, happy hump day!


  1. What great news! And she must be loving a house full of people – lots of excitement! Even if they do sleep on her blankets.

  2. HIP HIP HOOOOORAAAAY!!! No more pesky bandage!! Glad you figured out the cause of the pink skin. I’m sure it’s very tender right now. You’re a very good Mom!

    I love tjat she’s enjoying all the humans who came to see HER!! After all, she is a ROCK STAR!!

    This does call for a scoop of ice cream…or two! 🙂

    Love to all!
