Mom didn't want to disturb me too much so this is the best shot she could get of my incision - it is a bit blurry. But you get the idea - it is nasty. It is about five inches long and most of the side and lower part of my face have been shaved - all for the sake of good margins.
Yes, I am home and happy about that. But this collar sucks even if it sort of makes me look like a pirate.
Here I am in my crate showing you my "better" side - I expect to stay in here for the day. It took me a while to figure out how to fit this headgear in the opening.
If you are squeamish about incisions, you may not want to look at the next photo.
I have two medicines that the Momster thinks I am going to take - but I plan on giving her a good run for the treats. I have four more days of Rimadyl for pain and seven days worth of Simplicef to prevent infection. I must admit that I am not very good about taking my meds but I will try to cooperate.
Lab report is not expected for 7-10 days and headgear has to stay on until the stitches come out in 14 days. It will be a long wait for all of us.
Thanks to all of you for all your comments, prayers, good thoughts, and crossed paws. Lots of love to you from me and my pack.
