Well, we just got home from our long summer vacation in our AIRSTREAM last week… only to be greeted by Hurricane Dorian at our doorstep. We rushed about and prepared our house for the expected high winds and safely made it through. We were very fortunate to have only suffered only minor yard damage and have spend the last few days cleaning up and putting everything back OUTSIDE that we had to bring INSIDE during the storm. But everyone is safe, the house is safe and all is good…
Now, let’s talk about ME for a second!!! A few weeks ago while on our trip, Mummy noticed a tiny growth on my front left paw. It actually looks like a swollen part of a dew-claw, but I had those removed as a puppy… and I don’t have this same swelling on my RIGHT paw. So my parents rushed me to a vet in the little town where we happened to be staying to find out WHAT THE HECK it was. He did a needle aspirate to make sure it wasn’t some sort of infected blob or gross thing of that nature… and he said he thought it was a little cyst and it needed to be surgically removed. WHAT?!?!?! While the doctor seemed very nice and certainly qualified, Mummy didn’t know anything about him and wasn’t comfortable having him put me to sleep. He said it was something that could surely wait until we got back home… to have done by MY OWN DOCTOR, so we decided to do just that. But, the day my appointment was scheduled, the hurricane was upon us and all of the businesses on our little island were shutting down so it had to be rescheduled. Fast forward to today… new appointment… doctor looks at it… not sure WHAT IT IS but he also says it DEFINITELY needs to come off and surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. OMGOSH. I had plans for tomorrow. I mean honestly, do my parents think that I am just sitting around with nothing to do every day???? I was going to organize my toys by shape and color, and clean up around my little plush house that Tulip and Katie keep sneaking into… maybe print up a KEEP OUT sign. I have things to do!!! Now I will be in pain for several days and have to postpone all of my plans. -SIGH-
Mummy is Fuh-REEKING out, so please keep her in your prayers.
