Subject: RE: BS: GOOD news
Delighted to report more GOOD news from The Lincolnshire Backwoods - over the weekend, Baxter the BT has been taking his ‘normal’ food (but a low-fat version) very happily, and we have been able to discontinue the feeding of liquid food through the tube in his neck. Still on five feeds per day, but life is much simpler now he’s eating his regular grub.

He’s begun to want to play, although it has to be kept at a fairly ‘quiet’ level - no running, jumping, tugging, etc. so that the risk to his internal stitches is kept to a minimum.

We have an appointment with his local Vet this afternoon, and a call with the surgeon who carried out his surgery this morning, hopefully to discuss the removal of the neck-tube and his external stitches.

Feeling very relieved and much happier than we were at this time last week. Although there’s still the spectre of those biopsy results hanging over us, we’re staying positive and looking forward with optimism.
