I got the best news ever at the vet today! They removed his metal sutures over the weekend and everything seems to be totally healed! The air pocket fixed itself and everything seems great! And here's the best news - HE'S RELEASED FROM DOCTOR'S CARE!! I was so happy to see her write those words on his chart :)
I think I've mentioned several times how fabulous my vet is - well today when I picked Buster up, he was dressed in a little moose outfit/coat that she bought him over the weekend! Isn't that awesome? She is truly the best vet ever. I about made her cry when I was thanking her for everything and telling how grateful I was to have had such a wonder doc to take care of my baby! She actually did tear up a little.
When I picked him up this afternoon they said he had done great over the weekend but had started whining/crying this afternoon and the only way they could get him to stop was to hold him. Apparently he was really missing his momma ;) Poor little guy - I bet he's so puzzled by what all has been going on and how often he's been at the vet's lately.
I'm so happy that it's finally healed! It's hard to believe that he had stitches/staples/sutures for almost 4 weeks! It's amazing how well he's done with all this.
