Just An Update Today

Today's post is short. You know how that life thing again can get in the way of blogging. But I did want to share an update on Brisco.

We went back to the vet on Thursday morning and he had the tube removed from his jaw. The vet said everything is looking good and the holes where the tube was will heal quickly. If he doesn't have any problems with the stitches, we go back the Monday after Thanksgiving and they are removed. If he beginning having any problems are it's not healing well, we go back the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

So far so good. The holes already look like they are closing off and he's not tried to scratch it like he was with the tube in it. In fact, he's pretty much back to his rowdy self and have even slept with that side of his face down (something he couldn't do with the infection or tube).

I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for all the well wishes and positive thoughts everyone has expressed for Brisco. I know the world is full of troubles and a hurt dog is a minor player, but to us he is family. Thanks for understanding that and being a part of his healing process.

Tomorrow reviews for Sunday Salon. Hope everyone has a wonderful and fun Saturday. Thanks again. Y'all are the best!

  12. Teresa, I'll be sure to pass your hug along. You does enjoy attention.

    VR, you are so right. It is one more thing to be most thankful for.

    Clarissa, I know what you mean. I guess it's because they can't tell us where they hurt or how they're feeling.

    Joanne, he is a big part of our lives. Hope you and your family have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.

    Harvee, thanks. His recovery will make the holidays brighter.
