Recovering……

harmon's lip 001harmon's lip 002

Harmon is home and seems to be resting comfortably. He isn’t too interested in eating or drinking much and I’m sure I wouldn’t be if I had that stitched up chin either. He loves it when I lay next to him and scratch his head, under his floppy protective collar and around the underside of his chin. And he’s been OK about taking his medications although they probably don’t taste so good.

We have been so appreciative of the prayers and thoughtful purrs from the Cat community. I am overwhelmed and so thankful for your kind thoughts and words. They have really helped me in the past day. The pathology report could take a week to come back and I’m still fairly anxious about that but am trying to stay focused and make our kitty guy comfortable. I really had to force myself to go to bed last night instead of laying on the floor next to him staring at his face and trying to will healing into him. He seems a lot more comfortable and at ease today.

You can see the other mass in his chin, about 1:00 in the photo above, dark red and slightly lumpy. I am praying the antibiotics will clear that up and that he won’t require another surgery. Please keep the purrs and warm thoughts coming, and again, thank you so much for your kindness and good wishes.

    We are glad that Harmon is home and did well in surgery. He is very cute in his blue collar. We are purraying and woofing for a good biopsy report. Vincent & Riley both had the C word and Mommy knows how worried you are. That said, even though the evil C got Riley, it did not get Vincent and he was around for 3 1/2 more years. We are hoping that all goes well for Harmon. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Woooooooooooooffffff Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Woooooooooooooffffff Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Woooooooooooooffffff

    We’re so glad that his surgery went well. You are looking after him beautifully. He will really appreciate this. We hope that pathology report comes back with nothing sinister and lovely Harmon bounces back to full health very soon.

    Make sure you take care of yourself as well. It’s hard on humans too.

    I am very glad that Harmon’s surgery went well and that he’s home again. I hope that he feels better soon and that the biopsy results are good. I also hope that the other mass gets cleared up by the antibiotics.
