Monty Update, Part 2

Despite our best efforts, our Monty is still draining and still wrapped up.  Our vet is still concerned with how the lumps presented themselves and keeps reviewing his chart.  Our main concern, which was cancer,  has been ruled out but she has also double checked to make sure that there wasn't another underlying issue, such as Valley Fever.  I'll admit, after reviewing the symptoms of VF I'm starting to wonder - I'm also hoping I'm having a serious case of Puppy Momma Hypochondria.  Which I would prefer...

Monty had a recheck yesterday and a new bandage applied.  His incision is directly beneath him and is difficult to reach.  Poor Monty has to suffer a little indignity at the vet to be rechecked...
I save my specials poots for moments like dis...
The vet techs have been waging a bandage war with the vet on appropriate bandage colors for our pups.  They wanted pink for Harlow, and she had every color but...
I iz sad cuz dis blue clashes with my royal fuzz.
With Monty they have been trying to have Christmas colors applied, and somehow, a band of blue emerged. So they added a few decorations...
It takes a strong pup to wear an ugly sweater...
I almost think Monty was relieved when we put his t-shirt back on over the bandages.
If I bury my head in da grass, nobody can see me.
We go back again on Tuesday for another recheck.  Please keep paws crossed that the drain can come out.

  7. Paws are crossed that it is nothing more serious than him being at the far end of the bell curve, and that you are just going through Dog Mom Hypochondria! Monty, we actually think you rock the multi-colored bandages (and clearly have the best Ugly Christmas Sweater ever!).
