Because I promised... Rochelle update!

You all should see me running around like a chicken with my head cut off over here.  But I promised a Rochelle update days ago, so here we go --

She went to the vet on Monday and had her laser treatment.  Vet was amazed at her progress, said that he thought the necrotic tissue would eventually fall off on its own, so we can just leave it alone for now.  She still has one more laser therapy treatment (today) and the vet thinks she will not need any additional therapy.

Her fur is starting to grow back on her leg, and the open-wound parts are very small now. The necrotic tissue is still there, but the vet said that could take awhile to fall off.  You can see the necrotic tissue as the black on the bottom of her foot on the 2nd pic.  She is still taking her antibiotics and will be for some additional time until she heals up fully.

Thank you to everyone who has donated or sent happy healing thoughts this way to help her get this far!
