My house guest is back
Yes, Honey is back in the house.
She was doing great following her surgery two weeks ago. She was eating and drinking and I never saw her nibbling on her stitches.
I took her back to the vet yesterday afternoon to get her stitches out and was devastated when the vet came back to talk to me without Honey in her arms. Turns out that she busted through not only her external stitches but a few internal ones too. She does eat like a goat and can really pack her crop so I can't say I was totally surprised.
The vet had to put her to sleep one more time and put a few more stitches back into her crop and outside up her wound to seal it shut once again. Oh, Honey Bear.
I've got her in the house today and I'll keep her in for a few days to monitor what she eats and keep her clean. After that, all bets are off. She is really much happier outside with her sisters. And I hate to deprive her of that.
So here's hoping that these stitches hold this time.
