*grumble grumble, says bad words to Reed* Since I can't chew him properly here, give his rotten butt a chewing from me. Sending prayers that you both catch a break and he gets healed up.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Well, the vet left awhile ago.
We cleaned up the sheath where the stitches cut and she took a good look at it.
We're doing massages to increase blood flow, hopefully get rid of some of the edema, topical anti-inflammatorys to reduce swelling...
It's still a waiting game, I guess, to see whether he responds to breeding or not but..
While he will be okay health wise, it's starting to look like his breeding career is officially over.
I'm not even sure what I'm feeling right now..

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Even if he loses this breeding season, maybe he will be in good shape by next year. I'm glad he at least is going to live. I am so sorry that he is having such a hard time.

Oh, it wouldn't just be this season. Permanently, I mean.

So is it final? Is he through? That would be such a sad thing.
