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!
