Free at last! (from the cast...)

Rufus in his red cast, tagged with love 
Rufus got his cast off today for his follow-up x-rays, and Dr. Salloom says the x-rays look great and that Rufus' leg is healing well. We are waiting for Rufie's surgeon, Dr. Everett, to review the x-rays as well, and give Rufie a clean bill of health. Hopefully we'll hear something around the middle of next week.

A detail shot of Rufie's last cast...

Rufus is still battling the inevitable cast infections, but he's on antibiotics and out of the cast, so we're hoping those naughty spots heal faster.

I asked Dr. Salloom if she would be able to spot an infection in the bone on the x-ray, and she said this is very good news indeed! That's been our biggest worry, that the cast infections would wander toward the bone and metal, and cause more problems for this giant puppy. We are thankful that Rufus is healing well, and we are very grateful for all of the love and concern you've shared with us.
