Back Home 3/12/14

Forrest was in Baltimore for several days for appointments, and we wanted to put people's fears at ease. The wound breakdown in Forrest's scalp appears to be improving. The Doctors feel comfortable that it can be treated at home. We are keeping the wound open and although the daily cleaning isn't very pleasant for Forrest, it's helping it to heal. We were able to visit the National Aquarium in Baltimore and see their impressive new Blacktip Reef exhibit. Toliver was especially intrigued by the puffins and jellyfish.

Thanks for the well-wishes, we are glad to be back home rather than staying at Johns Hopkins.

Love,
Austin, Forrest, Kent & Rae

  6. Hi Forrest, I was just looking at the picture of the Dr working on your head & clicked it up larger. I noticed then how Toliver has his head on your knee watching every move the surgeon is making! He gonna make SURE that Dr. does only what he is supposed to! He really looks like a wonderful dog. I'm so glad you have him now to accompany you through this journey.
    Love,

  7. Hi Forrest, Sharon here...I've seen this blog and been meaning to reply. Baltimore Aquarium is the best!!! My youngest grandson and I spent 6 hours one day until they kicked us out. We were watching sharks, Black Tip reef exhibit and lots of the smaller tanks. We were there on Australia day and got to listen to many stories of the animals and Bryce even got to play the Didgeridoo.
    Hope all is going well. I talked to Cara last week and she told me about your sleep-over buddy...sounds like your two are doing well!!! Keep causing trouble!!! It keeps everyone awake!!! Sharon
