EMERGENCY: Severe burn


Recommended Posts

This morning I'm seeing healing. There's a thin layer of new flesh on top of his ribs that wasn't quite there last night before bed. I can't seem to get a good photo of it. I'm just glad it is there, because this means Hell is one step closer to being over.

I have tears of joy right now.

He's feeling well enough to greet me when I come into the room! He zoomed over as soon as he saw me and was actually doing his best to do a 'feed me' dance. :heart I missed my spunky baby. He's getting back to his old self despite the injury.

Edit: my only concern is that he's been 'coughing' today.

i missed this because you 'edited' and i didn't receive a notification. so if you could just add extra information as a new post, that would work better :)

now, how do you mean 'coughing' is he continuing to do this? if so, could you get it on video so that we can see it? does it occur only during/after feeding time or is it constant?

It happens after he swims. It's a quick motion, almost exactly like when he spits food out. I haven't seen it today, though. I'll try to get a video if I see it again.

:) yep, and i expect that little fluffy bit, i consider to be dead to also fall off,. from there, like a plant, when all the dead bits are gone, focus will come to where it's required for rebuild.

hun, i am wishing the two of you a speedy recovery.. from the every piece of my heart :heart

it looks more like a jerking reaction than a caugh. either way, i really don't know what this is. so we'll just have to monitor it. ie, i don't know what it is, so i don't know if it requires any treatment if at all.

if anyone has suggestions as to what this caughing is, please feel welcome to post :)

thank you Chelsea, for providing an example of it :)

i would soon like to see a video of him reacting to your presence as well as his reaction to feeding.

To me, it looks like his mouth is open like he is gasping or something. that's just my :twocemts

He is looking so much better! You are doing a great job! :hug

It seems like the extra long mouth stretch causes the bottom of the gill to open quite a bit. Possibly this reaction is for flushing the gills of debris.
