Oh my what a week it has been...our Lapdaddy so very glad to be home. The spinal surgery went very well but it took some time to get the pain under control. Each day brought improvement...much rest helped a great deal and the good care from the hospital staff. Mommy brought him fresh coffee from home each day and we sent along our best purrrrs and all of your good wishes. To be able to walk without pain is such a blessing...like a rebirth. We have a bucket of pain pills and big bandages...mommy is learning to be a good nurse.
