UPDATE. CLYDE IS STILL ALIVE
He molted again. And he actually moved himself. Turned himself around under coconut shell. He seems to want to be left alone for the time being he's pulled back in his shell doesn't want the attention. I check on him every few days. I put him in his water bowls but he dosen't come out I let some spill in his shell so he can have some for later.
What a will to live. I think his feeding claw is working now. That big claw is still there but he's shedding some every time he molts it is what it is.
He may not be doing it right but he is alive. That's what matters.

Update

Update. Clyde is doing well. His last molt weeks ago , he was able to start digging again. He's still quarantined from the rest. But he molted again last night. My husband and I leave for Michigan today, I figured let me put him under his coconut cave while we are away, BUT 2 days ago lol we leave today and come home next Monday night so I'm hoping he eats his legs slow and I'll free him when we get back. I had him out and about with no coconut cave for a bit moving around So I hope he's content I have a friend and family watching over them and other pets so it should be fine.
He's doing very well and I hope he can rejoin the big tank soon it will be a while more though I feel the 2 legs left originally are still being worked on he never dropped them his big claw still needs to heal. Each time some sheds so one day he will just have a new one. I'm happy his feeding claw is back.

Glad he is still doing well! It gives me hope for one of mine that I’m *nursing* who has been suffering from PPS most likely...he is very slowly making progress so I’m hoping not too much damage has been done and he continues to gain enough strength to molt soon. Hope your guy continues to heal and do well!

Clyde did not survive his last molt. He was completely healed. Such a shame after all his Been through. I don't know what went wrong but I know this time of year is hard for them. After everything he went through what a way for him to go.
He will be greatly missed. Image

I'm so sorry! You two fought so hard. These guys molt on stored energy, and when there's been a major health issue that messes with their stores, it can catch up to them later on.
