Thank you all for your concern for my health. I have a confession - I was really only out of it for one WHOLE day. And half of the next. But after that . . . well aside from this STUPID CONE (and occasionally the blue donut) I am back to normal. My fold looks good - you cannot even tell there was anything cut out of it! And the loss of my front teeth did not affect my smile because I NEVER (okay, seldom) showed them anyhow!
If anything has me down it is my weight loss regimen. How I hate to D-I-E-T! And Mommy says once the cone is OFF and the dogter gives the ALL-CLEAR, I am back on the walking circuit. She just does not want to risk any infection at this point. I think she is in denial or maybe in PROCRASTINATION because if ANYTHING is gonna give me an infection it is the DIRT I manage to get on my collar everytime I go outside. I use it like a shovel cuz it makes a funky sound.
So yeah, thanks all of you for proving the awesomeness of Blogville and its sense of caring and community.
All this love is kinda ADDICTING!
I got a call from the dogter yesterday regarding the nasty BUMP which is now gone. He said it's all good and this is what it was:
A histiocytoma: a benign skin tumor that originates in the Langerhans cells, immune cells that function to provide protective immunity to the tissues that are in contact with the outer environment -- the nose, stomach, intestines and lungs, but mainly the skin's surface. These cells are also referred to as dendritic cells, and histiocytes.
Well, glad to now it is gone and nothing to worry about.
