Thank you for all your comments and support, I have really appreciated it .
Rodney was supposed to get his staples out today, but the vet said itwould be best if he left them in for another week. The side that wasopen last week is still fairly open at the moment.Thevetsaid the areaisdryand looksto be healing (it was seeping fluid last week) sohe didn'tneed to put any more staples on it.
Thanks Angieluv! Rodney had his final check upat the vet yesterday and everything is looking good. He is completelyrecovered and can finally play outside again. He hasn't been in thebackyard for about amonth, and I know he will be binkyinglike crazy when I let him out today.
