March 21, 2018: Today was Binkley Buttons one week follow up appointment at Blue Pearl Vet Specialist in Nashville and things are going wonderfully well – Bandages were removed and x-rays reviewed with surgeon, Dr. Au. He shared that they actually used bone from a donor for our little guy, due to the infection and bone deterioration that had already set in. The red circle in the x-ray picture shows where the donors bone fragments were used. The x-ray also shows the extent of the external fixator that was put in place. Amazing !
So as per Doctors order, 8 weeks of crate rest, continued medications 3 times daily, daily cleaning to ensure no external infection and lots of love. Scheduled follow up appt in 2 weeks.
Again, none of this would be possible without the support of all of you! Please keep little Binkley Buttons in your thoughts while he continues to heal. We will keep you updated on his progress.
