Thank you to all
Aoife's splint was removed as well as her bandage. The rotation flap remains intact with some superficial scabbing at the point of attachment of the flap. The scabs were removed. All sutures were removed. A dressing and soft padded bandage over the elbow was placed. The remaining sutures from the skin flap were removed. The recipient site has had a moderately sized region of devitalized flap tissue that has declared itself fully. The dead portion of the flap was lifted away today which revealed a better healthy granulation tissue beneath. The previously noted deep defect within the frontal sinus has shown progress of filling and is improved since before the skin flap procedure. The doctor had hoped for more flap survival however, he is hopeful that the wound healing can be accomplished with the current treatment. A final closure maybe needed for that deep portion in the future.
Please if at all possible make sure she has a vet that is a Specialist. This is a very delicate surgery. I agree with the post about Seattle Vet Specialist in Kirkland. Just a thought. That is if she could even be transferred in her condition. You could call them and talk to them about that. I have hear really good things about this vet. One thing I have never heard of is a vet asking for funds upfront. We are all in love with you little girl.
Please please, don’t use Pilchuck. If you have to wait until tomorrow, call around and find another vet. I don’t know of any other vets that extort funds in advance like Pilchuck. The vet I would recommend: Animal Hospital at Murphy’s Corner, 1700 132nd St SE G, Mill Creek, WA 98012. Their phone number: (425) 316-8387. They are VERY reasonably priced as well as top-notch. Tell ’em Claire sent you. Good luck with Aoife…
Thank you for the latest update, I am so happy, glad and thrilled to hear of her progress, I keep thinking of her each day and praying she is going to be healed fast and have a great life. Please keep us all with the latest news on this precious beautiful girl! God Bless
