Tama-Chan: Yes, today is normally my day to blog, but I know that many of you will want to know how things went for our Tommy at the vet's yesterday, so I wanted to give you an update. It turns out that Tommy does indeed have an abscess. He is now on antibiotics for at least one week and we are crossing our paws that this will clear things up completeley. If it doesn't, then Dr. C will have to go in there and get it out. There is a follow-up appointment booked for next Tuesday morning. #1 is concerned because she is abandoning us and going off to Canada on Thursday of next week and she would really like Tommy to be all better by then. So, we could use some help in the purrs and crossed paws category.
Here he is at Dr. C's office, with Genji in the carrier (Genji is perfect and utterly fabulous according to Dr. C and he did well after his shots):
Dr. C was adamant that Tommy must NOT lick his wound, so he will be wearing the dreaded collar at night. To give him relief when he is within eyesight of #1 during the day, she is bandaging up his midriff, like so:
We will of course all be supervising him too!
I am also still supervising #1's work (oops that looks more like blogging and FB...):
And generally looking regal:
But I do manage to find a moment here and there to relax...
