Feeling Better

I went for my follow-up check at the V-E-T this morning. Still no report from the pathology lab. Dr. C said they were doing a re-test and we should have the results tomorrow.

But the staples are out and that stupid collar is gone.

The wound is yucky and oozy because some of the
skin is dead. There is no infection though.

Dr. C said the dead stuff will slough off over time and new healthy skin is already growing back. At least I'm allowed to clean it as much as I want.

I haven't been able to take a proper bath with that thing
on my neck, so if you'll excuse me, I've got a lot of work to do.

I'm betting it feels funny back there with no fur, but it will grow back soon.

Sorry to disturb you during your bath. I'll come back later.

It must feel so good to have the staples out and the e-collar off. They sure did shave a lot of your furs!

I see you have your badge of courage. Wear it proudly!

PS Mom says, if Rascal bothers his incision, cut the cuff part off a man's white sport sock and pull it over his body. That will keep him from getting at it and allow it to heal. That worked well when her cat Shadow had 2 abdominal surgeries.

It is good to see you with the collar off, Rascal! I'm sure you can't wait until your lovely furs grow back. I'm still purring that the test results come back ok.

Rascal I am glad that you can clean up as much as you want. I hope that it is a good thing that the lab is retesting.

ps. remind your mom to give you a hairball treat or two to keep the return to grooming from negatively impacting her textile work!

Boy, Rascal I bet it feels really good without that collar. I bet your on pins and needles waiting for your blood work. But I bet it will be a good report. Enjoy your bath.

Maggie and the four doxies all send best wishes to Rascal! At least now he can take a proper bath for Pete's sake!

We're glad Rascal's doing better and out of the collar. That would drive any cat or dog crazy.
