Thank you all so much for purrrrring real hard for my Lapdaddy. The first surgery went well and he had a week to rest up. On Friday he had his long surgery, over 8 hours, to fuse his back in place. He is doing well afterward, at least this first day today...we hope for more improvement as each day goes by. The pain is so dreadful and the meds are making him see things that are not there. At least he can not fall out of bed because he can not move without help yet. Mommy spends all day in hospital with him and comes home to feed me and sleep...in the morning she is off to be with him again...I am a lonely kitty.
