Watching little Hercules heal himself, and turn what was a monstrous swollen ugly-looking blob a the end of his back leg into what looks more and more like a NORMAL, beautiful hind foot daily is a true wonder. the toes are becoming evident as separate entities now...wish I'd taken photos...the 'befores' and the 'afters' are so amazing. The big scab on his foot came off on the way to Dr. Mandy, and it was then evident that the foot was VIABLE!! Putting vitamin e oil on now, for the skin, as well as the arnica gel and gave him another dose of arnica montana 30c orally yesterday. Mother has moved him from the elevated cage right behind me, where this shot was taken, into the linen closet in the bathroom...I was about to put the cage on the ground. When he starts really walking, there is a danger of falling. I may move them back to the living room, mostly for my own convenience, but for now they're happy, safe, and warm. He will go back to his lovely caretaker Carleen in a week or so...but she'll have to keep mother Diana on raw organic food! :-)...
Mocha: another miracle. Made an appointment to get the fluid in his stomach drained this week, but it turned into a mere re-check, as the fluid resorbed (did you know that word? I didn't; means 're-absorb'...) and continues to do so! That freed up $250.00 for the ultrasound, which I'll schedule for next week! Hope my pledge cmes through!! Always more need than money...Graham and Lola have mouth issues...Lola had surgery to removed necrosed ('nother new work as of a few years ago) tissue in her mouth. Necrose is a verb! Necrotic is the work I knew: dead. So he's fine, thin, sleeping in the sun now, going in and out, sleeping with me at night, biding his time. I wonder if his condition will just resolve, as the fluid did? Truly an unknown situation at this point.
Working backward...Bina spent more time here yesterday...getting used to the idea that Connie is gone, and that this will have to do. She will be having the big tumor on her head surgically removed (would have happened already save for the needs of Mocha) as she rubs off the Neoplasene salve which has killed all the other tumors elsewhere on her body. Here's photo of Bina with a pink patch where a tumor had been, after the tumor died and fell off. Newplasene: Check it out!
Have an adoption appt. today for lovely Ms. Gris...who has been living with Mark and Sherry up the hill...not happy to be here, but Mark will be back to make her comfortable for the interview. Wish her well...she needs her own home!
ON another happy note: Luigi got adopted! Folks I know...makes it REAL easy!
Love to all!
