Well here it is 9 days after her surgery, a few additional visits to the vet, some more injections and oral antibiotics, scheduled forced feedings, ... and today Robin ate something on her own for the first time! I have noticed that she has been getting stronger and more antsy while tube feeding and today we manged to get a few syringe feedings into her when she had enough. I decided to try a quarter of hard boiled egg and SHE ATE IT! HOORAY!
I dont yet know if this means that she will eat more on her own, time will tell.
Her open chest is no longer pussing nor does it smell so I believe that the infection is under control. So perhaps Tuesday we can close her up and let her finally heal correctly.
