Home Is Like A Bowl-a-Cheese

I got home yesterday.
And I made up my mind I am going to stay here for all my days cause of you.
Your support is overwhelming.
I would like to introduce you to my nurse Lily.
She is already sleeping on the job.
Mom said she was getting very sad without me.
Probably cause she hasn't bitten my ears in 87 days.
I grabbed my pillow, threw it outside and snoozed.
and snoozed....

I snoozed to the right and snoozed to the left.
Please, no profile shots.
My zillion chins will show.
I think I would look quite handsome as an English Bulldog.
I am taking Prednisone.
It is a pee pee drug.
Cause it makes you pee pee.
Drinking a gallon of water is tiring.
I also take tramadol for pain as needed, Pepcid, Metronidazole Suspension (antibiotic) and     Ursodiol (liver protectant)
I am being monitored to make sure my breathing is ok,
my tongue and gums are pink, I am eating, drinking and have no pain.
mom continues to slobber on my head.
I said mom
one day at a time, right.
The response from YOU, Blogville, and Facebook and Twitter friends
is more than we could have ever imagined in 87 years.
We will see the Uncl-ologist Thursday morning.
You guys rock my world,
and Lily

Soon as we sort it we will send some green papers to Benny. Have an easy Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  29. Benny! You're home! You get your rest...and your waters...and your medicines...and more rest. I have my paws crossed that you get better soon. I'm gonna ask Ma if we can help out (she controls the green papers).

  30. You are giving our mom leaky eyes, Benny. We are so very happy to see that you're home and Nurse Lily is taking the best care of you ever!

    Mitch and Molly

  31. We are so very glad you are home because that is where you will really feel your best! And your nurse Lily was probably napping cuz we are sure she did not sleep a wink when you were in the hospital. If mom's eyes are leaking that is OK too. That's what moms do when they are in love.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  32. So good to see you home , Benny ! Looks like you are being well taken care of. Lily has to nap occasionally , as she is the head nurse there. Every buddy is right there with you, praying hard for you to recover. You are so

  34. Benny...you are such a handsome boy. Glad you are home...get lots of Zzzz...and let beautiful nurse Lily help you (in between her Zzzzs. Being a nurse is hard work. She deserves some snoozing. Plus, I'm sure she is worried about you). Sending you all positive thoughts and prayers to stay strong and Fight Like a Frenchie. Hugs to you all.

I have a 4 year old chocolate lab named Indy and he rocks my world :) I lost my only child last year (Jonathan, age 24) and Indy has been such a source of joy and healing for me. Pets are FAMILY - they love us no matter what. I know that is how Benny feels about all of you. I don't know you but I had to donate a small amount in honor of Jonathan. He would want me to do that. Praying for you Benny!
