Update on Tommy

On Saturday Tommy was injured while he got away from John and followed a wounded buck. Today he had a surgery to repair his abdominal wall. His injuries proved to be more substantial than our vet initially had thought, and today Dr. Montario had to stitch through 5 layers of muscles. On the top of it, as it turned out, Tommy had a sharp plant piece stuck in his right eye, very far, almost behind his eye ball. Only when Tommy was sedated and his eyes thoroughly examined the problem was discovered. 

Tommy's recovery will take several weeks, and for the next two weeks he will be confined to a crate. We'll give him a lot of TLC, but I am sure he'd rather be tracking than staying in the house by a warm stove.
