Legs For Days.

I was really fortunate that the weather was so shitty last week, because the cold rain only seemed to help with Archie's cellulitis. Woo. By Wednesday of last week, the only heat was in the fugly sore on the front of his leg. After that, his leg started revealing more of its normal definition and by the weekend, I would say that all swelling had subsided.


I told the vet that I planned to stop buting and hosing on Friday of last week and he gave me his blessing. I also verified that I should leave the fugly part open and dry, which he was pretty adamant about. So now we just handwalk.  A lot.  He should finish his antibiotics either today or tomorrow.  And then I just continue waiting.

"I am becoming a horrible shit."
