Looks like he may be going on prednisone to bring the swelling down. Fingers crossed that he doesn't have any weird side effects from the pred. He also split the scab open again and the wound is a bit bigger. *sigh*

blabsforbullies wrote:Is this a common thing? Is the swelling generalized? Have they used pred for this with other patients?
I couldn't agree more
Marinepits wrote:I'm afraid the swelling is probably my fault. When we got home yesterday, he went straight to the dog bed in the sun spot and slept there for a couple of hours. He probably shouldn't have been exposed to the sun, but it just didn't occur to me that the sun could be a bad thing. The swelling got pretty bad yesterday evening but had gone down somewhat this morning.
