Diary Update of Siu Bak Bak
Siu bak bak was quite depressed after spending so many weeks in the hospital. Even though his condition was improving, his appetite was not the best. After discussing with his caretakers, we sent him home to see if being at home would lift his spirits. That was one of the best decision we have made!
Siu bak bak was back to his loving self once he got home. His appetite improved over time.
Siu bak bak is now visiting us every 2–3 days for wound cleaning and bandaging. All thanks to Siu bak bak’s gentle personality and tolerance, wound management is quite a breeze. His wound is contracting and healing very well. Hopefully, he would not have to undergo another surgery.

One day after treatment, Siu Bak Bak’s temperature was low. We cleaned his wound with barely any resistance from him. Treatment was administered and we tried to keep him as warm and comfortable as we could. It was fortunate that he ate some of the soft canned food we fed him with.
The good Samaritans, who brought him in to seek treatment, visited in the afternoon and spent some quality time with him.

Siu Bak Bak improved amazingly once his temperature went up! He has been ravenous and was getting up to look for more food. His blood test result has also improved. However, the huge wound on his right hip region may have to be surgically cleaned up further. Hopefully, he would not lose his tail.

Siu Bak Bak will be undergoing another surgery today to remove more of the dead tissue around his wound. He was looking bright and alert this morning, perhaps waiting eagerly for his breakfast. Sadly, we have to deny him of his meal because he had to be fasted for surgery.

Daily wound cleaning were mandatory to reduce infection and encourage new skin cells to form. Siu Bak Bak had to be hand fed daily to keep his weight consistent. His appetite has been poor and the lack of exercise has led to the loss of muscle mass.

Siu Bak Bak had another wound debridement today, this time with just local anaesthesia. Siu Bak Bak tolerated it well and did not make a huge fuss at all. Siu Bak Bak may require another 1—2 surgeries to reconstruct the skin around his anus and thighs.
Thursday, June 16 to Present Day
Siu Bak Bak continues to tolerate his daily wound cleaning patiently. The route to recovery will be long but it is heartening to see his progression from day 1 till now.
