In spite of the earlier reassurances given by veterinarians and nurses from various clinics over the past week, Bronzy's swelling on the belly has been getting worse and worse.
I've been told time and time again that she is merely healing slowly and differently. In fact, just two days ago, it was explained that because Bronzy was active and still jumping around, fluid was building up and causing the swelling, but that it wasn't a serious affliction.
But something is clearly not right.
So she was brought back to the clinic today. The vet in attendance thinks that one of two things could have happened. The internal stitching could have ruptured and the swelling is a result of her intestines spilling out or that there is an abscess growing underneath.
Bronzy will remain in the clinic over night. We will only know the exact cause of the swelling tomorrow after a second operation.
