As fascinating as it was, I was also very truly impressed!

It IS fascinating and amazing to me how well Moby is doing. It sounds like he has a great surgeon.

Yes, it has a black tint which most tumor cases are and when you remove the flesh, it also is black in the deeper layers. Do you have a photo of her fish? What fish is it?

Moby remains perky as usual although when he is bored by himself, he sits on the bottom. Lonely but I can't mix him with other fish until the wounds heal at least. I've been administering betadine on his deep wounds from time to time but it looks like the wounds are healing a bit. I am just glad the blood clot quickly after the surgery.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

And when may we expect to see a pic of the new & improved Moby?

Here he is. They're hasty shots so they aren't good quality. Excuse the water marks.




The baby is four inches already. That's a lot from 2.5 inches. Woo hoo!
