Um, well, um ... I actually didn't know I was supposed to be changing his dressing. I actually didn't even think of it. So, naturally, I HAVE NO IDEA!

So, um, I told the doctor no, it was not leaking or oozing. Well, if I can't see it, it ain't happening.
Maybe the cat can do it. She's pretty flexible.
