|Check out my Monsters Inc bandage :)|
After looking at the wound though our surgeon has decided to wait on the antibiotics as the splint to keep his toes together is working and the actual wound is healing by itself and there is just a small portion open now. It is still oozing a little but not very much and the surgeon is hoping he can fight off this Pseudomonas by himself.
Part of the big problem we have with his healing - apart from the infections is due to Mr Reilly's splayed arthritic toes - being spread out so much puts a lot more pressure on the wound than he would have with a normal paw. As a result he will need to wear a splint for a few more weeks and then to a pressure bandage to keep his toes together until the scar tissue is strong enough to hold.
Today we are all watching the weather as Tropical Storm Colin is heading straight towards us - they say we can expect 6-8 inches of rain and winds gusting above 50 mph with possible tornadoes. We have had a bit of rain and a water spout was spotted on Jax Beach this morning but the worse of it is expected later tonight and tomorrow. Please keep your paws crossed for us :)
