If you'll remember, my concern has been about the wound cracking back open due to swelling. Unfortunately, this worry is based on experience. We've made it nearly this far several times only to have the wound crack open once the pressure of the bandage has been removed.
Knock on wood here, but it seems as though we might finally be out of the woods and free sailing. I hope. The next hurdle will be to skip the Vet Wrap layer without any swelling. I won't try that until next week. I'll keep you posted.
