Razzle's pathology report came back and the tumor was benign!!
I had a feeling it was going to be ok, but it's nice to have it confirmed.
Razzle has been doing GREAT, healing fast, and full of energy. In fact, the doctor said he can have his wheel back. OH BOY! Razzle is going to LOVE IT. He has been going stir-crazy without his wheel. He wakes me up every night around 4am banging around in his cage and rearranging everything.
Also, I'm hoping that having the wheel back will tire him out a little more. He's been especially difficult when trying to administer his meds. He is just out of control squirmy...practically doing a back flip to avoid the meds coming near his mouth. The best way to administer his medications is when I have him in my hand and he is rolled up in a ball. Well he knows this and does just the opposite. Trying to get him to roll up has been a creative feat for both Steve and I. A loud noise used to work pretty well. No more. Razzle has become used to all our tricks and we have to constantly think of new sounds that might startle him. Crumpling paper worked for a couple days, but now that's old news to Razzle the Fearless. It's been taking me 15 or more minutes in the morning (while I'm rushing around trying to get ready for work) to try and get those meds into Razzle. I'm HOPING once he gets his wheel back he might lose some of this rebellious squirm energy and things will go a bit smoother.
Anyway....it's a good day!
