Can you keep the good thoughts for him? I always get nervous, as he is put under to change it. I will get another pic to show the change since last Saturday. He looks great and has not messed with the bandage at all, thankfully! He will be upset with me the morning, as he cannot have his morning mealies, but he will get them when we get home! I will post when we get home, appt. is at 11:45. Thanks!

Thank you. It is closed up even more! They clean it up, so it looks a little more 'wet' but it is doing really well. He didn't even crab when he woke up, either! I put him in his hospital cage and the little bogger went straight in his wheel and start going!! lol Course, he was walking and a little crooked at that! lol vet says he is healing up really well. Oh and she said he must be getting used to it, it is harder to keep him 'under' at the very lowest dose....she said she just has to work faster now! lol And he actually bit Nikki his favorite (not) tech today! (Not hard. She said 'he was made I looked away from him for a moment'...lol) He came home, ate, had his meds and is happily sleeping right now! He is getting a little irritated under his right front leg, but I will start putting the animax on it tonight when he is awake. Most likely from rubbing. All in all, another good update! Again, a graphic pic.
Fur on his chest......what a beautiful thing! lol Thank you! His bald spot on his head is filling in now, too. I cannot imagine him without it! lol But glad he was neutered, turned out to be the least of our worries! The vet said she is very happy, as it could have gone the other way. He is doing his part, by not messing with the bandage and for that I am so very thankful! If we can get that fur grown in, we SHOULD be good to go!!! Thank you all for helping me through this. It is so scary and it helps so much to have people who understand.
Awww....yeah...what a cute little furry astronaut! I really think that wheel, as well as his loving mommy, is helping him keep his mind off the bandage and the healing taking place that may bug him. You guys are doing great!

Thanks guys! He has been running in his wheel all morning! I love to hear that wheel going because it does keep him occupied and I think it is helping the blood flow in that area and therefore making the healing happen even faster (sounds good, anyway! lol) I will get some pics of him today with his new bandage on. They made it even smaller because he is doing so good!
I cant wait to see the little guy all dressed up in his new bandage! Im so happy things are going well! Im sure hearing that wheel helps you rest even more! Im sure when it stops you are up in a flash, too!
We are all so thankful you are so good with keeping us updated! We really wanna keep track how BOTH of you are doing and Im sure it helps to be able to to have such a huge support system!

Thanks, Micah! How are your two new babies doing? Have your feet hit the ground yet? lol It has been hard knowing he doesn't understand, but he has been such a good boy. I just gave him his morning (chopped up) mealies, and as always he nuzzled my hand when I put the dish in his pouch (I do that in the morning so he doesn't have to 'get out of bed' lol) We were very close before this happened but this whole experience has brought our relationship to a higher level. I am glad he is adjusting to everything and hopefully soon he will be out of the 'shirt' and back with Gidget (she is so depressed without him, that is almost more heartbreaking for me. She is so lost without him. She has never been a cuddler, but is now. That tells me how lonely she is.) I think I will let them have another play date tonight in the tent. But it only lasts a very short time, as she gets so overexcited, she ends up hurting him rubbing herself on his head!
Awwww... That totally just made me cry... Poor Gidget! Im sure this has brought you two a lot closer, too, though! That poor sweet baby girl! Give her lots of love from me.
My girls are doing wonderful! They are both so sweet and loving and are settling in better than I ever imagined! Everyone was right! Melinda has some SWEET babies! Dutchess, the most vocal one didnt make a peep this morning when I took out the pouch to love on them! Dita, of course, just crawled right up to say hello and Dutchess started to groom me! LOL They couldnt be any more perfect if they tried! Its amazing how much I love these girls!

Awwww, thats great! Yes, they certainly grab hold of our hearts tight, don't they!!
Yes, Gidget and I have bonded more over all this with Timmy. It breaks my heart because when I let her visit, in three seconds, his head is soaked from her licking it and rubbing on it! And she gets carried away and he screeches, so I have to pull her off of him (and she holds on with all she has!) It breaks my heart, but I have to do it. Hopefully as he heals more, they can get more time and she will calm down, but she has always been this way with him, she is very dominant, but loves him with all her heart. I will get some pics of her today too. She is a little (figuratively speaking) sweetie! lol
I just laughed out loud! I couldn't believe how just waking from the anesthesia, he immediately wanted to run on it (albeit, he was running sideways and bouncing off the walls, but he did it! lol) He loves his wheel and I am so happy he can run in it, as I know it has made his recovery (this one) easier on him. He is getting 'itchy' now as he heals, too, so he seems to run even harder when he is itchy! lol He is a determined little guy and I know he is doing his best to get through this. Just hope and pray when the bandages are finally off he LEAVES HIS CHEST ALONE!!!!
