Happy Thorsday!

When I had my screaming headache, one of my sons brought a wingback chair from the family room into the breakfast room for me, and parked it next to the air conditioning vent, right under the ceiling fan. My friend spent 3 days right next to me.
He was recuperating, too. Notice that his left arm is shaved a bit. A cyst on his back broke open and got infected, so we took him to have it cleaned out. They used a mild sedative on him. After a week of antibiotics and steroids, he's in fine shape. They shaved a very large area on his back, and in deference to Thor's image, I won't be taking pictures of it. Suffice to say that he's been romping outside with the boys, who are anxiously keeping him out of the sun so he won't suffer sunburn!

Happy Thorsday, everyone! Thor's hoping you're all as healthy as he is!

Glad to hear that you are both on the road to recovery. Poor Thor, he is getting slightly aged for anaesthetics glad they only gave him a sedative. Take care both of you. Diane

So glad to hear you're both on the mend. Obviously, Thor doesn't get 'roid rage like Sissy... not that I'm surprised.

Thor! An exploding cyst! Ew! I saw a video of an exploding mastiff cyst once and like totally a gallon of goo came out for sure. I have a big cyst on my tail. Wonder if it is going to blow. Glad you are feeling OK and that you were able to take care of mom during her head hurting.

Slobbers,
Mango

It's never an official Thursday unless I see the big lug.

My best bud kept me company during a recent confinement and it really IS the best therapy. Glad your bud is doing better.

Oh those cysts are such a nuisance. They keep us from doing the things we like and they make Mom worry.

Of course he had to keep you company.....or maybe you were keeping him company. Get better...the both of you.

The company of a big ol' sleeping dog is some of the best medicine ever. Hope you're both feeling better :-)

Poor Thor! I hope his skin troubles are resolved soon. Our dog, Beau, has hot spots, too.

It's very hard to be a pimply teenager - isn't it? One would think dogs were imune to that phase of life, but they are not.

How nice that he stuck with you while you were sick. sorry you were so sick - that's never any fun. g

Hi Thor, glad your cyst is all fixed. What a good boy to look after your mum. Take care all, no worries, love Carol.

Oh poor Thor... and Zeus always wants to know why the must shave such a larger than life area... pooey to the vets! We're glad Thor is all fixed up!

We're so sorry to hear you and your mom were under the weather at the same time, Thor, but we're glad you could recuperate together. Hope you're both feeling better now and ready to enjoy the holiday weekend.

Huge hugs to both you and Thor. Yes, I know you're both on the road to recovery but really who couldn't benefit from just one more hug:)
