Price Not So Cut Up

Price before surgery, with Fearless, with her scary devil eyes ("Don't touch my Price!"
At this point, still worried if he needed surgery. Ya think?

It was a bowel blockage.  As Dr. Burt said, "Like a rubber band around his bowel."
Poor guy was in surgery or recovery all day.  Then was wrapped up in a blanket for the long drive back home. 

Waiting for Price to come down from the sedative after surgery.
Then the water main broke.  Oh, and Dan slipped on the ice on the porch this mornings; we're lucky he's only bruised.

I hope I can make it to Emerald City this weekend.

Good news: Price has recovered to the point he staggered back to the bedroom and got up into his comfort zone on the bed.

Well, that's encouraging news, at least in the sense that they found something to fix. Pat him a stroke for me when he's awake.

That's what I love about you. We get photos of the removed blocked bowel. Glad that Price is fixed and on the mend. Sure he will be back eating you out of house and home in no time! And watch out for that ice! Your kitties need you both!

Well, yeah, Leanne! There are artists reading this -- you know how we love anatomy and meaty stuff. A thread following his progress is at Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/BarrDonna/posts/138172286249839?ref=notif&notif_t=like#!/BarrDonna/posts/187880077917679?notif_t=like

I hope the big guy has a speedy recovery, and can have that fish soon.

Our icy winter was made a lot happier for me when I got some Stabilicers cleats. Old fat woman does not do well on ice these days. They take some getting used to, but they work for me. Although they do make you sound like you ought to be goose-stepping!

Ow, poor baby! Best wishes for his healing.
