Two weeks ago, Gus stepped on a Hawthorn tree branch in the backyard, and this thorn broke off inside his left foot. Eric took him to the emergency room, but x-rays didn't show anything inside. So they put a bandaid on it and sent him home. Well, he hobbled around for two weeks while his foot turned red and swollen and full of pus. Obviously something was still wrong. So we went BACK to the doctor for antibiotics. And then last night, a 1-inch thorn freakishly shot out of his infected wound.
Amazing how the body heals itself. Gus is finally on the mend and walking with both feet again. Thank goodness. (I can't imagine how bad that must have hurt.)
