This is a rare post without photos. I used the best one I got today on the banner and it seemed a little redundant to use it again here. Anyway, Louise seems to be doing better - we do have to cover her paw when we go out for walks, but keep it uncovered (nekkid!) when she's just running about the house. We have a topical cream to put on the sores that had formed from bandaging, and everything seems to be healing nicely.
It's a full time job to prevent her from licking at it though. We didn't get a lot of sleep last night.
She is asleep on my lap as I write this which is kind of nice. The paw licking isn't really a big problem, we just have to keep a closer eye on what she is up to. She's not trying to chew at her paw or anything like that. Another day or so and the sores should be healed over and it will no longer be an issue - Louise will be free to lick her paws to wash her face once again.
I might post again later if I happen to get some more interesting shots of her. But for now, I'm going to let her sleep a while.
