Percy here. I know we said this before, but my lump has more or less disappeared again. In fact it’s been tiny for the last couple of weeks. Mummy has felt my chin and jaw very carefully, and says if she didn’t know it was there, she certainly wouldn’t find it.
I said “does that mean I don’t have to have my meds any more?” Even though I don’t have as much as after I went to Dr Simon, I’m still having one dose of metacam and my nutrimed daily.
Mummy said, “no, you’re still having your meds. Remember what happened last time it went down and I stopped giving you them?”
“Oh, yes,” I said. What happened then was after a few weeks my lump grew so big Mummy thought it was The End. I don’t want that to happen. I mean, it’s nearly time for fresh grass and running in the sunshine. So I’m still having a small dose of my meds, and Mummy said she’ll ask Dr Sally if maybe I drop to metacam every other day.
It isn’t sunshine and grass weather yet. There was a little bit of grass we had from the garden about a month ago, but we’ve had none since before Mummy went out for the week that Auntie Vikki visited. Roscoe showed you some of the pics from that last week, but here are some more. Look how sleek my left cheek is! This weekend we had snow again, but not as bad as before. Mummy says she hopes we’ll be into spring soon, and it’s Easter next weekend, so things will start Looking Up.
I do a lot of Looking Up but I generally only see Mummy coming towards me, or the light shining down, or the top of my cage. Maybe everything Looks Up when the sun shines, though, and that’s what Mummy means.
Apparently these daffodils are just coming into bloom, so maybe that’s the signal for us to go outside soon. This pic was from two years ago, I think. Oh yes, the date is on it.
Mummy’s URI has nearly cleared up. She still coughs sometimes, but the worst of the snorting seems over. I think she needs to go out in the garden more, but it’s not warm enough for her, either. The test is whether she can sit outside without a coat on. I’ll keep you informed.
PS Thank you for the photos, Auntie Vikki ❤
