Dex is hanging in there and doing alright. Today is my first day without him bandaged up and we're giving it a go. Last night I took off the wrapping and cleaned the wound, letting it stay out in the open the rest of the evening. Today, I decided to give the entire day a try because it's looking much better and ultimately I didn't have the time, nor strength to wrestle him to get it done.
We're both ready to have daddy home tomorrow night!
