Ben Ben Update

Friends, this is Benny's nurse. Call me Nurse Lily. He went to the uncl-ologist (Oncologist) Thursday.  He got a chemo shot.  He took it like Big Boy Benny. So far so good, no side effects.

Although brother's whole liver is bad with "C" we are still waiting to hear if its "mast cell..." or "lymphoma." Lymphoma is a tiny bit better. We will keep our Benny as comfortable as comfortable can be. He may have a month or 87 months, but one day at a time friends.  Benny will "Fight Like A Frenchie."

 He has no pain and is eating like a champ. Thank you... thank you friends. I know you got Benny's back.

Snorts, Benny & Lily


  1. We've gotcha covered Benny. Your nurse is adorable!

  2. OH BENNY you look super in your ROBE. HECK you look super in a Hat or even just in your furs.

    We know that Nurse LILY and your mom are taking super grrrreat care of you.

    Glad that the medicine the Uncle Ologist thingy gave you hasn't had any bad effects. THAT is super.
    You just keep Fightin like a FRENCHIE. We are all rootin fur you.

  3. Lily, make sure you take care of yourself too. When our Loki got sick, the stress from being the nurse made our Gemi sick too. There was nothing wrong other then she was stressed out. So you make sure you take some time for you.

    Enjoy every second with Benny!

  4. Benny you look great in your robe.
    Big Hugs to you and nurse Lily (love the nurse hat)

  5. Hey Lily!
    Wow, you are a super nurse and I know you'll be helping him out tons.
    Hey Benny!
    Wow, your robe looks totally comfy and I was so happy to see all of Blogville behind you. We will all enjoy every minute of every day no matter what.
    BTW: Thanks so much for joining me in my event today! You both look amazing in your entries.

  7. Young Master Benson....what a great and comfy looking robe. Do they come in people sizes? Where can I get one? Lily, you're doing a great job helping Benny be comfortable. Well done, Frenchies!

  8. Praying that it is the Lymphoma and that Benny has many many years enjoying his good life. Nurse I think you are doing a fine job!
    Seize the Moment!

  9. Hi Lily! You remember that our brother Gizmo had the evil "C" a couple of years ago. There wasn't really anything that his dogtor could do for him 'cept keep him comfortable, so that's just what we did. We hung out, and he had visitors and we laid with him and he got tons and tons of snuggles from everyone - especially us. We really knew when he wanted space from us and when he wanted snugles. You have a very hard job of keeping Benson AND your mom from getting too sad. We've got YOUR back!

  17. You're such a great nurse Lily...Give Benny a big *snoogle* from me...Have a peaceful Saturday

  18. Thank you for the update sweet Lily. Your such a good nursie!
    Tell Benny that there is a song I wish I could sing to him.
    Its a Ellen Degeneras song- about a fishie who sings "just keep swimming"
    I had a dream about the fishie and gave the message to Benny.. and to
    Keep Fighting Like a Frenchie!! One day at a time.
    I love you all.

  19. Your post has some hope in it and that's good. You're right, one day at a time. The most important thing is to do the very best that you can for Benny. He's getting his meds, the best care that you can arrange, love and support from you and Lily and his friends online. Push ahead and whatever happens, you'll always be able to look back without any regrets or second guesses.

  20. You know we have Benny's back! Nurse Lily I think you just might be the bestest nurse he could ever have.

  21. Oh Lily, you are such a Pro at bein' a nurse! You look FABulous in the nurse's hat! I knows you'll take good care of Benny, and watch overs him, and your Mom!
