I'm on campus today, but David called to say that Raven is very stiff. She was quite lame this morning until she got going, and then she seemed more comfortable. Kerstin was emphatic that Raven should remain stable or continue to improve, and that anything otherwise would probably indicate damage done to the underlying bone. I did palpate the joint quite assertively last night, and there is no suggestion of continued infection -- it is smooth and dry, with just a little nub of tissue around the wound itself. My fear is that my not-so-tender ministrations aggravated a bone chip that is responsible for her continued pain. Hopefully Kerstin will be able to get some x-rays tomorrow.
