Chester is doing much better. Thank you everyone for your concern and comments. He's going to have stitches for a while though, and without intervention he would probably tear them out with his teeth not knowing any better. All you gotta do is put something in between his mouth and his stitches. However, the "buckethead" thing he was wearing before was wreaking havoc on our house; he didn't seem to realize that he was suddenly quite a bit wider - and he didn't seem to care, so he's been scraping and banging and annoying, so Shannon came up with this much milder alternative. And it's hilarious because he doesn't seem to even be aware he's wearing a bag on his head!
