Tommy Thursday

Tommy: Yep, it's me again I bet that you're all getting really tired of me and my woes. Believe me, I am too, and when we went back to dr. C's this morning, I filed a complaint!

Yesterday afternoon, #1 had finally managed to pinpoint the location of my paw problem, narrowing it down to up from my little toe. There was quite a bit of swelling and she wondered if it might be broken or perhaps there was some kind of foreign body that had dug its way in there. So, off we went back to Dr. C's this morning and it was x-ray time! As #1 Assistant, #1 donned the lead apron and held me still as Dr. C maneuvered me into the correct position. The lovely pictures showed (1) that I have very elegant and perfectly healthy digits with nary a break in them but that (2) there are two nasty looking "bits" in there that Dr. C suspects may be blackthorn or something equally unsavoury. She decided that I had suffered enough and would have operated on me right away to remove them had I not indulged in a sumptuous breakfast of chicken breast. So, I am booked in for noon tomorrow. More paw crossing and rumbly purrs, if you don't mind. Hopefully, that will finally solve the problem.

In the interim, I did go out to dinner with #1 last night, and spent some quality time chomping down on sticks:

And I got an excellent new ball from Nip and Bones in the post! Highly chewable!!!

And Genji has been providing lots of moral support!


  1. Oh, poor baby! Purrs and prayers for a very lovely surgical result and quick healing. We know #1 will spoil your properly during your recovery, too!

  2. Oh POOR Tommy!!!

    Paws khrossed the nasty is finally extrikhated!

    PeeEssWoo: Be sure to play it fur more of evfurrything!

  3. Tommy, we are not fed up with hearing about you: but we are FED UP that you have a poorly paw. We really hope the Nasty Bits can come out pdq. Paws crossed for tomorrow.

  4. Sounds like a bad news/good news scenario. Now Dr C can hopefully make you all better. Is blackthorn the same sort of thorny thing that you had in other places that she removed? Maybe while you are under she should check very carefully in case there are more bits near your private parts.

    Purrs to you all!

  5. Oh Tommy, I hope this hearlds the end of this for you and I like Simba's idea of examining you thoroughly to see if there are any more anywhere on your sweet self. xoxoxox

  6. Tommy we never tire of seeing your handsome self but are sorry you are having woes. We are sending healing purrs that they get the blackthorn or whatever out and you feels all better.

  7. No chicken breast for breakfast tomorrow then Tommy - it would be a shame to waste it so purrhaps you'd like to send it to us! Maybe you should have little boots made for when you go out in the fields.

  9. Oh gosh, poor Tommy! We like the updates, not the content, of course. However, we do like to know he you are doing!
