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.
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. .. :)
