Just a short post to let all two of you know (my estimation of two being fairly generous, I dare say) that Kissy Shrimp has made it through his grueling twenty-minute surgery and is currently resting.
There were a few complications that may result in permanent scarring, but shrimp being a rather dirty lot, don’t bother themselves much with vanity, so I don’t see a lawsuit being filed anytime soon. Plus we did cover all his medical bills and we keep a roof over his head.
Warning for those of you who are faint of heart I suggest you stop reading. Below is a before and after shot of Kissy Shrimp’s gaping wound. Neither one is pretty.
Once I had closed up the majority of the large wound, I noted a smaller one at his anterior. I continued the original suture line up to incorporate both areas of concern.
Thank you to everyone who sent cards, flowers, and kind words. I will make sure Kissy Shrimp sends you each a claw written note in the mail.
