One Day Giveaway & Bailey Update

It's been awhile since offering a "One Day".    There are 3 charm packs of "Civil War Anthem" by Barbara Brackman & Terry Clothier Thompson. 



Here is a Small Quilt I made from a charm pack of the same fabrics a few months back (with some added lighter fabrics):




Update on Bailey's vet visit yesterday:  Picture of the area that has been stitched  3 times with no luck.  This is where the bigger tumor was extracted. You can literally put your big finger in the gaping hole.


Vet removed the torn sutures from around the area, cleaned and sterilized the area with Chlorhexadine - and made it a "cleaner" looking area.


What has to be done at home:  Daily cleaning with Chlorhexadine liquid (available without prescription at any pharmacy).  I literally pore the Chlorhexadine right in the cavity, even using a Qtip in and around the wound. Then actually rub the area with sterile gauze to "upset", or "rough up",  the area into wanting to grow new cells to form a new skin covering.  This procedure is called "Granulation" healing.  It's what they do quite often when healing troublesome areas.  It is not uncommon, infact our son in nursing school,  learned about this healing technique his first semester.  He knew exactly what the vet was talking about.   Keeping the wound covered is essential after daily cleaning.  Bailey still cannot do our long walks until she's completely healed which can take up to 8 weeks.  Bailey will get all the other sutures removed next Monday.

As many know, "One Day" simply means I offer a giveaway for "One Day" only, 24 hours.  To be eligible, simply leave a comment and I'll have DGS, who is spending the night, pick a number from the comments tomorrow morning.  

Happy Tuesday.

Hugs

bo said...

Ohh I love these. Would love to have them. Hope bailey is feeling better. Poor baby..hope the wound will heal..are they gonna have to re sew it..if you sewed it it would sty sewed.

Nancy Sue said...

Your small quilt is so sweet, but not as sweet as Bailey. What a champ to deal with the wound. Wish our pets could talk to us, or at least know how to count so when we do granulation, we can say, hey, let's count to 20, and they know how long "20" is :) Get better soon Bailey!!!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh my, poor Bailey. I hope he heals quickly. Love your little wall hanging. Is that a Schnibbles pattern?

I hope Bailey heals quickly. It's so hard when our pets are not feeling well. Love your quilt. Thanks for a chance to win the beautiful charm packs.

Mary said...

Poor, poor Bailey. I hope he starts healing soon. Thanks for a chance at a wonderful giveaway. I love your little quilt.

Judith Blinkenberg said...

Wow, I hope she is better soon. You are doing the correct thing. I made visits to a man every other day who had a golf ball size hole in his heel. I cleaned the same way and stuffed it with gauze soaked in a solution and that heel healed great. Wonderful job miss vet nurse!

barbara woods said...

love those thanks for the chance

tpott said...

I'm so sorry Cindy, I don't know where I was to have missed your last post. Bailey looks so sad, I hope they got it all. I have a 12 yr old collie rescue, that has many tumors, mostly fatty. I guess we don't really know. I had a bunch tested, but even our vet says there are so many, with her age (we think she's 12) it would be too much stress on her to operate. Right now she's happy and comfortable and we're thrilled to have her for as long as can. I'm sending prayers and hugs. Please keep us posted as best you can. ;-> Toni Anne

Kindred Quilts said...

I sure hope Bailey will be allowed those long walks soon... how sad he must be without his daily routine. Love charm packs... these are very pretty!

Quilt Hollow said...

Bailey is certainly a lucky pooch with your loving family to care for her. Can I win the small quilt? Hee!!! You know....my colors and all!!! I never did get any of this line of fabric and sure would like some...put me in coach I want to play! Oh wait...wrong line to use for wanting to win fabric!

Sherryl said...

Oh dear. Poor Bailey! That does not look pleasant. ... oh and thanks for the chance to win that gorgeous fabric! I'm a sucker for anything Civil War-ish.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Oh my gosh! Poor Bailey! I hope the healing process will hurry up. ;-) You definitely are doing all you can and I'm sure it is helping. ((hugs)) And what a fun giveaway! I love CW! Thank you for the chance, you are such a sweetheart.

karin said...

Oh, poor Bailey!!!! After cleaning the wound it certainly does look better. I hope that doesn't hurt Bailey!
thanks for the giveaway amidst your stressful time. I love those charms.

KT said...

Diana said...

Hope Bailey is better soon. Love the fabrics.

Kathy MacKie said...

So sorry for Bailey, ouch. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kate said...

Oh, poor Bailey! The vet has talked about a feeding tube for the cat, but caring for an open hole is a little terrifying to me.

This Dog's Mom said...

My heart goes out to you and your poor puppy. I'm glad the Bailey has such a good nurse! I really like your wallhanging! The fabric is lovely!

Darlene D said...

Pick me, pick me! Great give away! Hope Bailey is better soon!

carla said...

Debbie said...

Clever use of the charms, Sindy. Hope Bailey feels better today.

Joyful Quilter said...

My three are sending Bailey kitty paw hugs. And big people hugs to you. I know how hard and stressful it is to nurse a sick (and very loved pet). Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

Susan Entwistle said...

Hope Bailey is up and back to the long walks soon. Paco and Tucker send sloppy wet kisses her way. (And thanks to you for the giveaway).

Kaaren said...

Bailey could't be in better hands with respect to his healing. You're the best Mom and caregiver, Cindy.

Give him a BIG doggie hug for me.

QuiltSue said...

Poor Bailey, I hope she gets well soon. This must be so worrying for you and your DH but I hope the visit to the vet yesterday put your mind at rest a bit.

Monica said...

Poor pup...it must be terrible for her to have that done every day. I hope she gets better really soon.

Yvette said...

Has anyone ever fainted while reading a blog? I think I just did. LOL! Poor Bailey! It reminded me of a bed sore I saw once on a patient and that is basically how it was cleaned and it healed nicely.

Sue Bennett said...

Poor bailey. Thanks for the chance to win. Love that collection..

suebennett1975@gmail.com

Shelley said...

poorBailey, I know exactly how he feels..I had an area after a surgery that would not heal over or take sutures either. It took a long time but the body is amazing in it's ability to heal given proper time and treatment. Love the charm packs...they need to come to my house as I need some inspiration lol!

Candace said...

Sounds like although it isn't the most pleasant form of healing, that Bailey is coming along nicely. Surely having such great doggie parents makes a huge difference! I already have some of that luscious fabric, Cindy, so leave my name out of the drawing!
Cheers!

Linda said...

HELLO! GOOD HEALING TO BAILEY!
HAPPY STITCHING TO YOU,NURSE!
THANKS FOR SHARING!
