He's finally resting

Today Jimmy is finally resting with his cat Jybow looking on to make sure Jimmy doesn't over-do it.
On Friday Jimmy had the remaining part of his thyroid gland removed along with some of the surrounding lymph nodes. Tomorrow he goes back to get the drain tube removed and Thursday or Friday the stitches will be removed. His ENT doc will then start him on a thyroid hormone pill and refer him to an oncologist for further treatment.
Jimmy acts & looks great for someone who just had surgery and doesn't complain at all. Both times his only complaint has been that the tape on the bandage is too tight and we've had to loosen it and then he's fine.

Today is Sunday a day to rest, but I have much to do today including counting my blessings.

Jimmy does look good and I'm sure
Jybow will keep an eye on him! :)

Wishing the very best for you both!

You just can't keep a good man down :) I can't believe he was washing windows! But it's good to see that Jimmy is finally resting. We're so glad that he's doing well after the op. Nothing seems to phase him, does it?
It's very helpful of Jybow to keep watch and do the supervising.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the family.
