Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful suggestions to help Phantom and for all your good wishes. Sorry, no lab report yet, but I wanted to let you know that he is much more comfortable today. No more itchies. It took until mid-day Sunday for the Benadryl to really do its job.
Some of you suggested Rescue Remedy for his stress and the D.A.P. diffusers. I had already used the Rescue Remedy but it only gives him a very short bit of relief. I have used the diffusers in the past but haven't found them to make a big difference. I have used Bag Balm in the past for myself but used the last of it this winter. If he hadn't improved some yesterday, I was going to get some more. He seems a lot more relaxed and content today. His incision area looks wonderful. Now just one more week until the stitches and staples come out and he can go shirtless!!!
I am filing all of your ideas in case I ever need them again. You are all great!!! Keep those vibes coming for a good report and I want it TODAY!!!
