A rotten, pulsating, cesspool of disease?


Check out this picture of Gwen's leg from a few weeks ago:

See that black line that's running down the middle of the wound there? I think that might have been the culprit in Gwen's last infection.

Check out how the wound looks now after taking Wolfie's advice and putting polysporin on it:
See where it's raw looking in the middle there? That's right where the black line was. I put polysporin on it the night I saw it was infected. The next day when I went to put more on that black bit sloughed off, under it her leg was raw and bloody. Obviously that black bit was an ominous sign that I wasn't paying close enough attention to. Hindsight is 20/20 they always say.

Anyway, I'm paying attention to it now, so hopefully her leg can get busy healing again!


  1. I think it looks a lot better! Wiping/soaking with salt water cleans and takes the swelling down and good old Polysporin has a chance to get in and work at the bad parts. Glad that it seems to be working for Gwen. I bet you in a couple of weeks you will be amazed at her recovery. You will have to post more pictures!

  2. Thanks so much for your comments, Wolfie! I'll definitely be posting updated pictures.
