Grey in the hospital


Recommended Posts

Just an update :

Ollie had his first checkup and bandage change.  Here's today's pics!  The cone of shame which he manages to chew has to be replaced weekly.. $35 for one.. 🙄

That last pic:   "someone is gonna pay when I get out of dis".

 

Ollie, I can't wait to see pics when you are all better and kicking some tail with that leg of yours.

Well...I thought I would update....mostly as a teaching tool and a lesson to many of us.  Ollie has been back to the hospital for an X-ray the end of November, they said he is healing very slowly, so 4 more weeks....well he went back last week for another X-ray...they said 3 more weeks.  

The reason for the slow healing?  He got a bit spoiled when the injury happened, kind of stopped eating, so my son gave him his favorites..pistachios..well that’s all he wanted to eat for the past month of so...he’s not getting the proper nutrients in his Harrison pellets, thus slowing down the healing process the hospital said...so there’s a lesson in this for all of us.

Ollie said still,has his cast on, it’s really not healing ...they took the 3 pins out, and when they took the third pin out, a bunch of puss came out. They said he has a bone infection, but they don’t know exactly what kind. He is back in a cast, is on antibiotics every 12 hours for a month. He goes back in 2 weeks ,but it’s not looking good. They are afraid he might lose his leg..😔. Very sad situation...we are praying for the best.

That makes me so sad to hear. Have they switched him over to a different antibiotic in case the current infectious organisms are resistant to it?
