i have not been blogging as much as i wanted to. We did not do much over Spring break and most of the last 2 weeks has been taken up with caring for Lexi.
2 weeks ago, Lexi’s tail got caught in the door to the garden and we had to take her into emergency surgery. The vet has to take off 1.5cm of her tail to close the wound. Unfortunately, that was not the end of it. Her wound did not heal well; it got infected and the skin around the surgery site died. So Lexi had to have a second surgery to cut the infection off. The vet had to take another few centimeters. i estimate she has lost just under a third of her tail. Poor dear!
She’s on a higher dose of antibiotics, we have a cream with honey in it and another visit to the vet in 2 days. We hope this time it heals well.
