Sam's site has continued to improve over the last two days. We will be stopping his antibiotic this weekend and will continue to watch his site closely. Thankfully, we caught this infection really early and it never made it to his blood stream so right now it appears that we were able to save his site.
In other news, we have a new addition to our family. Buddy came to live with us on Thursday. He is a 4 month old Black Lab/German Shepard mix. He currently enjoys licking the children and peeing on the carpet.
Buddy is very mellow and a perfect match for Ryan and Sam. He is going to be a big boy so he will be able to tolerate years of "attention" from the kids.
