Hey Chanda, think I must have been having a blind few days!  In spite of popping in here every morning for a quick read through, not only did I miss that you had had a Birthday - belated Best Wishes from me - I also missed the news about poor Bliss, bless her.  Hope the little sweet girl holds everything 'together' until it heals properly.  ;pray  Note to myself 'must pay more attention when reading through the threads!'

Thank you.  Not a problem, easy to miss.   I've missed a few, I'll read one or two, and not notice there is another new one to go.   
It's looking better and better everyday.  Just 3 more days til I can take out the few stitches that stayed in and we'll see just how well it's healed.

I would definitely not go as often if I lived farther from town!  What I call town just has a grocery store a feed supply and a few little stores but that's all I need so :)

The closest  "town" I live to, which is our address/zip code, is only 19 miles away, but it only has a post office and a CoOp (gas station with service and a few parts).

Finally had time this afternoon and trimmed Bliss's hooves; she did pretty good.  She hasn't learned to tie, yet, so I had to follow her around the stall to trim her, but it wasn't too bad.
Tomorrow, I'll be driving Mom to her doctor's appointment, so I will be going to TSC to stock up on hay pellets while I'm there (150 miles trip for me, so gotta stock up while I'm there).

My mom lives in the closest town, it's 37 miles, about 800 people and has a small grocery store, small hardware store, a couple other little stores and two gas stations.

Whew, long day.  Made it to town and back for the appointment.  Mom has another appointment in a month.
Picked up  14 bags of hay pellets today; if you drive that far, you stock up.   ;)   Oh, and I get to unload from the pick-up and stack in the feed room tomorrow morning (need to unload at least one bag before feeding, so I can open one).

Stitches out this morning.  I'm pretty sure the vet put in 9 stitches or close to it, only 3 lasted til today for removal, and two had a tiny bit of discharge when I pulled them out.  Put ointment on after removing the stitches, will continue to put ointment on for a few more days while it heals some more.
Picture of before removing the stitches and after.

After slipping those stitches, I really didn't think it would look so good, so fast.  Very happy.  Now if she'll just keep her nose out of trouble.

It looks really good! 

As to the stitches - sometimes it sucks to have minis.  Your vet probably could have used smaller suture - maybe didn't have it?  That looked huge on her.  I'm so glad that she is healing well for you.

RAH, rah, Bliss! 

cheers... and Tally Ho

I thought the suture looked really big.  And, since I was at the clinic, you'd think she would have had access to smaller suture, since she's a mixed clinic and does cats, dogs and livestock.  It's moot now, the stitches are removed and she's healed quite well, despite most of them coming out on their own.   ???

 Wow she looks great! I'm glad all is going well with her. Might have a bit of a scar but I thought it would look much worse <3 poor girl!
