Poor Bernice

Poor Bernice. She had to go to the vet today to have a growth on her head removed. It was just above her right eye, about the size of a pea under the skin. Whie they had her on the table, they decided to take another little growth that has been on her eyelid for awhile. Both required stitches. So tonight, she is having to wear a cone so that she doesn't pull open the wounds by rubbing them with her paw. She is not very enamored of the cone normally, (we have to put her in it sometimes because she nibbles the fur off her paws) but she really is unhappy with it right now, because the stitches are itching and the wounds are painful, so she will attempt to rub the wounds once in awhile with her paw, albeit unsuccessful.

She has to keep the stitches in for ten days, so that will mean 10 days of the cone for the obessive-compulsive Bernice; we feel bad for her, but there's no way around the necessity of the cone. Meanwhile, it's 3-4 days of pins and needles for us as we wait for the cytology report. Hopefully, it will be fine.

I hope she'll be fine, hon, but we'll take good care of her, no matter what she's dealing with!
