I looked for masking tape, but only found duct tape. I'm using it only temporarily and will get some masking tape next time I get a ride to town.

Anyway, I went out there this morning and she seems okay. Still eating and drinking and not being quite as restless as last night. She's acting like she doesn't know she's hurt. Well, she's never been very smart...

Once it cools down, I'm going to change the bandage (not removing the wing splint, of course.) I'm a little scared at what I might find, but I know it need to keep it clean and but some more antibiotic on it.

I did sneak a little peak at the wound. Pretty nasty, but not as bad as I first thought. It's starting to scab up, which I think is a good sign.
