Farfel is HOME -- and Anthony Weiner has been removed :)

Fafrel has come through his surgery very well !!!!   :)  I think the worst part for him was the way the Vet Tech dressed his wound -- he/she wrapped up his "junk," "privates," etc. I mentioned it to the Doc -- and he immediately tried to move the dressing off Farfel's "family jewels"!!!  Farfel started screaming -- seriously, what man wouldn't?????  I even said that to the Doc -- he kind of had to agree with me, even though I think he was a bit embarrassed. Well, they adjusted his dressing and Farfel seemed much better, although he was walking sideways -- maybe he will start a trend :)

The BIG tumor, aka "Anthony Weiner,"  most likely was cancerous. The Doc said he is pretty sure he got it all. I hope he did.  So, just like the real Anthony Weiner, Farfel's "Anthony Weiner" has been removed. YAY!!

Farfel also had two other lumps removed -- one was a snipey looking cyst who  we briefly named "Ann Coulter." The other lump was a big fatty lipoma -- who we briefly named, "Glenn Beck." YAY -- they are gone as well  :)

It was and is very sad for me to see Farfel in any kind of pain or distress. He is fine though -- I gave him some super-duper pain meds, and he seems to be enjoying them , as well as the pieces of chicken I have given him :)

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and comments. All very much appreciated :)  I know you all know just how much Farfel means to me  :)  As a matter of fact, when I called the  animal hospital for a status report, I said,; this is Patti, Farfel's Mom, how is he doing/  :)   I can't refer to him as a dog, or even a pet -- he's my boy  :)

So...the next lumps to be removed (actually replaced) will be mine  :)  That will be Wednesday, and I AM looking forward to it -- gotta get these hard-headed bald guys off my chest  :)  Then... soon Star will be home :)  I really miss the sweet little girl.

Thanks again!!

Patti, and Farfel (who is totally groovin' right now)

Miss Fergi -- smooches to you :)

Lucia -- yes -- that's the Garden Center -- Constantine's Nursery and Garden Center. John and Athena Constantine were my Aunt and Uncle -- they are now deceased, and my very handsome cousin Johnny is the boss. It's a great place. I spent many great times there and even worked in the .... Geranium room when I was 14. ..  :)

  5. Ciao, caro Farfel,

    Whew! I am glad to hear that Anthony Weiner is gone, along with Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck, and very glad to hear you made it through surgery well (private-parts' mishap excluded, of course... ). I will be keeping my paws crossed (which sort of makes me walk sideways, too!) that -- post 'groove meds' of course -- you'll soon be back to your smiling self!

    Tanti baci!

    PS: La mia ragazza says she thinks your momma's handsome cugino once waited on her at the garden center when she went in to look for basil plants. I, Lucia, wish Farfel had been there, too!

  6. OMD..we have missed whats been happening. So so relieved to read Farfel is home safe and on the road to recovery.

  8. We really love all of your comments, nose pokes (our favorite) .. Airezen .... and all of your very nice thoughts :)

    Farfel is doing fantastic -- although he does have a very large incision -- and his beautiful haircut has a big shaved path, but other than that -- he is doing very well :) I had my "exchange" yesterday -- and.... KUDOS to my Doctor -- I have a very wonderful, perfect looking, soft, pair of fake boobies!!!! I feel pretty good -- even went to my ex-father-in-laws funeral today... but am wiped out now!!! It is really nice to no longer have those hard-headed bald men on my chest --- :)

    Thank you everybody!!!! You're all wonderful friends!!!!

    Patti and Farfel.... and hopefully sooooon Star --- I miss her... Farfel does too...I think, but now he is basking in the attention of being an "only dog!"
