Sandoa doing well

Sandoa is progressing well, the biggest danger was infection from the two lacerations around her groin - when bonobos ar etethered for a long time, the rope cuts into them, rubs into the raw would and festers - it can be very dangerous.

But after much disinfecting, the wounds are healing nicely. She has a big apetite - always a good sign (remember our little Lomela) and more than anything loves sugar cane, pineapples and oranges.

the next step is to see how the results come back from the lab. hopefully she doens't have anything serious.
