Better

Fonzi is looking pretty good, considering. His swelling has gone down a good bit. The hock is still grossly swollen, with pitting edema and heat. The necrosis is about the size of a silver dollar, really ugly looking. He is using the leg again, albeit very gingerly. He sees the vet tomorrow for debridement and evaluation. We have to decide if we need to take more extensive action for the wound, or let it heal on its’ own. His appetite remains good, as does his outlook on life.
