Robin a four eyed possum is healed

 Robin a four eyed possum is healed

The other day when I had Robin out I noticed that I could not see any remnant of her previous surgery and mean nasty chest infection. Her hair has covered any scar and shes as perky as a possum! It was touch and go there for awhile while she was being nursed back to health and I am simply amazed at the end result.

Below I am posting two photo moments. One is taken today which is all clean and wonderful looking and the second set is one I have never posted before. It is of her open puss filled stinky chest wound. It was really bad for awhile which is why I am amazed that it has healed so well now. We had to leave it open to allow the drugs to heal the infection before closing it up. It got really nasty and scary for a bit but I followed the vets directions, gave her baths, gave her meds and worked with her until we could sew it up.

Kudos to Robin for being a trooper! She's of a healthy disposition and weight now and eating well.
