Pawsmetic Surgery...Under the Knife...

Hi Everybody...Thanks for all your 'well wishes' & pawsitive vibes - they are definately helping! Here I am above when my mom/secretary explained to me I needed to go under the laughing gas & get some unwanted cysts removed...not a happy Randi-camper at all!
Here is one of the nasty cysts on my right elbow that decided to explode over the weekend...stupid cyst...
Pre-op preparations...another stupid bath...cuz I can't have another bath till my stitches come least that's a good thing...
More pre-op preperations...A BURGER! One good thing about surgery, your peoples lavish you with love, tummy rubs & burger king!
On the way to the vet yesterday morning...I'm trying real hard to be brave...
& since I was going under the funny laughing gas, my peoples decided it would be nice to get my teethies cleaned & whitened they are before...not bad at all..some of the best teethies of any 7 1/2 year old gal they've seen at the vet!
Oh...all of you who don't know what they lube is is clue...
Back at home...drugged up...& my eyes rolled back into my head...not pretty...
Here I am recovering in the sunny backyard...I was very wobbly when I tried to walk through the mom kept calling me a big drunkard...
Another reason to just say no to drugs! (are you listening Amy Winehouse??? - my mom says I resemble her in this pic)
Finally able to stand....but not for long...
Closeups of my ouchies...I have another behind my right ear...This morning my mom/secretary discovered I managed to scratch out one of my stitches on my head...Its ok now, scabbed & healing...but it was itchy! What was I supposed to do...?
The vet said no walkies for 3-4 days & absolutely no rough-housing with Win-com-poop for at least 2 weeks! YEAH!!!!
Love & Licks,
***Randi's mom/secretary here...the vet said Randi was a perfect little angel yesterday & the surgery went well...the cysts/growths were not deep & they were removed fairly easy...we are waiting to hear back on the biospy results...but the vet thinks they are all benign... - Thanks again for all your good thoughts...we really appreciate it...***

hi Randi, you are such a lovely girl. it makes us really happy to see so many pictures of you. we're so happy that it all went well and you are doing well now.

play up the sympathy angle and see if you can get some more burgers out of the deal. that will definitely make you get better faster.

we're sending you the power of the Bs for good biopsy results.

and thanks for the clue on the "lube". we get it now. :-(

happy woofs

Hi, Randi!
Paws crossed for good results!
You don't look happy in those pictures but I am sure you will feel like new in no time!
Take care.
Kisses and hugs

Hi Randi! I am so sorry I wasn't here for you before you had your pawsmetic surgery. But I am so glad it went well and I am happy you are home recovering. I love your napping picture in your yard - your napping position is the BEST!
Love Clover xo

Geegs said...

Randi.. Good to see you made it through the surgery with flying colors! Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.. :)

"nameless" (My mom hasn't named me yet!)

Joe Stains said...

oh Randi we are so glad you are done with the surgery and are at home healing. try not to do too much scratching ok?! I kinda liked tanner on the drugs when he had his cyst removed...

Pippa said...

Oh darling Randi

I am sending you lots of virtual love and kisses

You are such a very brave girlfriend and I am so sorry you had to have drugs and nasty surgery. I can imagine you were a perfect angel too.

But at least you are back home now, and will get lots and lots of love and tummy rubs, and maybe more burgers.

Hope the results show they are benign.

The Zoo Crew said...

Glad to hear that you are back home and everything went well. Paws crossed for good biopsy news!


The Brat Pack said...

We're so happy everything went ok. Crossing paws for good test results. We luv ya!


Spencer said...

Hi Randi,

Wow, I sure hope you feel better soon. I think the drugs are the worst part of surgery. Get some rest and heal up soon.


Moco said...

Grammie says you are a good looking drunk and she has seen her fair share.
Foley had a cyst removed once and had to go back in and have extra surgery because he kept opening the incision. He had to wear a helmet and t-shirt. At least you don't look dorky like he did.
Getting a hamburger is almost worth that lube.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

You were a very brave girl. I always get scared at the vet.

Princess Eva

P.S. Paws crossed for good test results.

Lola Smiles said...

I'm hoping you're feeling much better today my friend. What a trip! and dudette, you are way prettier than Amy Winehouse!!

The Army of Four said...

We're pulling for you, Randi!
Tail wags,
PS: My mom loves your feety-feet. :)

Sophie Brador said...

Randi! You look absolutely gorgeous, even when totally stoned. A sign of a perfect diva if I do say so myself. I'm relieved to hear everything went perfectly well. I'm glad your brains didn't fall out when you scratched out that stitch on your head. That would have been tragic! I sure hope your results come back as perfect as your beauty.


Daisy said...

Randi, you are very, very brave! I hope you are feeling all better soon. Also, I must tell you that I am very impressed with your sparkling white teeths!

Stanley said...

Randi Girl!

You look all biker chic with your scars! Ooo! I bet Wally is especially gonna love that.

Asta's right. Amy Winehouse WISHES she had your juicy velvety black nosey and your style! She's got NOTHIN' on you.

Glad your surgery went well and that you're recovering at the spa, like all good candidates of pawlective surgery do.

Extra juicy healing goober smooches coming your way, girl!

Goober love,

Beanz said...

awww Randi. Hope you are feeling better soon. I'm sure Burger King will help. I've never had one. I'll have to speak to my people about that.

Heal soon and feel better my friend


Suki Sumo said...

Randi! I go away for a while and come back to find THIS!? So glad your opawation went well but sheesh! Feel better!

Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

Sweet Randi... we are glad the surgery is behind you now! Take it easy!!!

wally said...

Poor Randay! I am packing my best nurse's outfit and heading west. You look you need a good napping/healing partner.

I hope you feel better soon. (Your teeth are totally better than Amy Winehouse's. Don't let 'em get you down!)

Randi! I missed the whole thing. I am so glad you are OK and have the nasty things removed. Those drugs they gave you look like they really made you loopy.
