Just a quick update to say that Lucy is doing ok today. She is already going a bit stir crazy in her stall and is trying to eat the wood in there, so I am thinking of ways to keep her brain occupied while she is inside all week.
Her wraps still look good enough to leave on, so I didn't change them. The vet said to leave them be as long as they stay up and don't look too gross, because changing them too often makes it hard for the wounds to form a scab and heal properly, and also exposes her more to infection. She is putting weight on all four legs evenly and is moving around her stall with ease.
The wound on her stifle looks very sore and it is oozing serum, but it looks clean and like it is already starting to form a scab around the edges. This is excellent news. I am thankful that it is cold enough for her to wear a blanket, because I think the blanket is protecting it a lot from the bedding in her stall.
I really appreciate all the sweet comments of support that you guys left on yesterday's post.
