Friday Funny with Phantom




Very funny, Mom - NOT!!!!





Since I don't hear much of anything these days, SHE thought an extra set of ears might help - sheesh!!!


Are you wondering about my tail situation?





Latest bandage is green, and under that green is some blue - at least no pink!!!






Yes, I am still enduring the bandage.  I have to have it changed every three days.  My nice vet Dr. B. says that big nasty tumor IS shrinking but much more slowly than he anticipated.  I had another cryofreezing this week.  Another bandage change tomorrow.  It isn't so bad because I get lots of attention while Dr. B. works on me.  Usually three vet techs help out, one holding me, one prepping the bandages for Dr. B., and one (or sometimes even three) more serving as my cheerleader(s).  When it is all done, I get some very tasty cookies that look a lot like Oreos.





Time to rest up for another car trip tomorrow.  Mom was delighted to see me putting at least half of my body on the soft carpet instead of just the hard floor.





Oh wait, do you have some of those Halo beef treats in your human paws?  My nap can wait for a few more minutes.


Woos - Phantom - who is NOT a rabbit!!!

Kim thank you for your comment on Stella's eye issue. We are seeing the glaucoma doc. next month in May..it is 2 hours away so not to far, OP is about 5 hours for us. I think she will do fine also, she can hardly see anymore so it will not be to bad of an adjustment for her, hopefully, and I know the other vet was telling me yesterday about the pain she must be in. It was hard for me to hear that.

Awwwwwwwwwww Phantom, Buddy you do have a rough way to go. We can't believe that SHE would force you to wear those Bunny Ears... on one end while needing the bandage on the OTHER.
BUTT we ARE happy to hear that the Evil thingy IS Shrinking...

Oh, your poor tail! We hope it gets better soon!

The Army of Four said...

Hi handsome! You're looking good, Phantom! Well... except for maybe the ears -- though you DO look awfully cute. I could have Maggie "take care of" those for you - wouldn't take but a split second!
Let me know!
Cammie!

I've been keeping Phantom in my nightly prayers. Glad to hear that the tumor is shrinking, even if it is going down slower than anticipated.

We thought your bunny ears were sort of cute, but are glad they were on YOU and not us.

We thinks the bandage could be very fashionable, we are sorry your tumors are shrinking so slowly but are thankful that they are shrinking. Healing purrs and lots of love to you Phantom.

Mark Muller said...

with that giant ears you can hear all secrets... even that about the place where the easter bunny hides our treats...
I'm glad the big tumor starts to shrink, it's great that you are such a brave and good boy, Phantom.
POTP to you... may it chase away all tumors ...
