Updates and other news...
My mom wanted me to be sure and tell you all that she very much appreciated all the good thoughts and prayers you sent up for our Grandpa. He is doing much better today and will probably be moved out of ICU and into a regular room. He may be at the hospital for a few more days though.
When she got back from sitting with Grandpa at the hospital today guess where I got to go? The V-E-T! Can you believe that? I didn't even get any fair warning either. It just happened! Dad was petting me and said "Hey, what's that on Rocky's hind quarter? And Mom said "What?" and then the next thing I know BAM! I'm on the examining table! The spot didn't look quite like the picture shown here when Mom took me in. It was just a raised spot with all the hair off of it. It was a fairly large spot and Mom was concerned it might be ring worm. The doc said it could be, but it didn't test positive for that. He gave me some antibiotics and some cream to put on it though. He said he wanted to see me back if it doesn't get better or if I get more spots. Then he will do a biopsy...
I did get a new collar out of the deal though. When Mom was getting ready to take me to the vet she couldn't find a collar here at the house that fit me. Can you believe she had the nerve to ask the Vet's assistant if they had any big collars that would fit my "fat" neck? The nice lady was quick to correct Mom though. She told her my neck was not "fat", it was muscular. So there! Anyways, I will keep you guys posted on what happens with this spot and I will also give you updates on my Grandpa! Thanks again for all your thoughts & prayers!
