He was brighter yesterday, rising up to greet me each time I came in and in the afternoon he let me trim more of the dead skin off his body. The skin left now is like big hard sharp tectonic plates glued with super glue to the next level of epidermis, when I am able to trim through a strait that stretches two together the relief for the poor fellow is immense. He literally sighs. As the skin dried up it shrunk of course, pulling down and across into his body. This process needs escalating somehow as the skin under the dead skin is turning yellow and pocky from lack of air. But what I have exposed is cleaning up. We will see what the Vet says today.
I have new emollients and sprays recommended by the show pig people. Especially designed for pig skin – I hope these help. But this is a very expensive process, so thank you so much for all your help in that department.
I stroke his belly with one hand and trim the flapping skin with the other, millimeter by millimeter with my little bandage scissors. It is painstaking.
Weather – It POURED down yesterday. Still no hope of getting into the hay field. More of the very cool temps today.
