Ties That Bind
Reyna’s stitches are out! John came over yesterday evening to mow the front yard for me, and while he was here he fixed a problem with my computer and kept Reyna calm while I removed the stitches (he’s a man of many skills). Reyna was very good for most of the procedure. The two stitches near the bottom (where there had been some oozing) were a bit painful because they were stuck. But we made it through it, and her incision already looks so much better. What little redness and irritation there was yesterday is gone now, and Reyna’s only made a few half-hearted attempts at licking it. She’ll still be wearing a cone to bed for a few more nights, just to make sure its completely healed.
