Finally Friday

Okay, Mom!  I guess you can show everyone my hurtie on beside my nose.  We tried to get a picture that was clearer, but one of my eyes keeps having the laser effect!  If you biggify my picture, you can see my ouchie!  I don't think it looks too bad and yucky, but if you have a queasy tummy, you may not want to look too close.  As you can see, I am definitely talking back to my mom.


We got the results back from the biopsy yesterday.  The vet said it was a Mast Cell Tumor, but it was benign.  I have to go back to her next week to get the two stitches out and I have to be sedated again.  Mom asked why the sedation to remove the stitches and she said that the stitches were so close to the eye and that the scissors were very sharp and one sudden move from me could cause them to go into my beautiful eyes.  Mom said, "okay, sedation it is!"

The Internet is a dangerous thing because mom has googled "Mast Cell Tumor" and she sure is glad that the vet said mine was benign.

Thanks again for your purrs for both of us!

Oh my that is such good news. I know your Mom is happy. Your hurty doesn't look bad at all. We would have never known. They probably won't have to sedate you a lot to take the stitches out. Praline you are prettier than ever.
You and your family have a wonderful Easter with all that good news.
