That's a bit dramatic bit I guess it works I stay clear from ciggs all together lol

I can't stand cigarette smoke.  I did get the bleeding to stop and Big Boy is doing really well!  He does pick up the effected foot still as if it is bothering him (not bleeding), so I am guessing it is still sore.
