he is still pretty dopey but up on his feet. two of our vets and their vet tech came to do the surgery and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for working so hard to save the prince of saints.
and now we wait and see..will the sutures hold together?, will he herniate again during his healing? will he develop pneumonia from aspirating some of the fluids he was bringing up during the time on his back??
and big thx to mo, laura, nicole, brent, ryan, janice, renee, krista, janette and isabelle (did i forget anyone???..jeez i am so brain dead now!) for not only being here with him but for all chipping in to do what ever needed to be done to help him...plus all of the so kind well wishes...it is truly amazing the love and concern of so many people for one (pretty damn special) jersey steer.
the vets will be back first thing tomorrow to check him and load him up with more pain meds.
percy has had the very best chance to get well again.
i bought him one of the lotto max tickets..if he wins he will share it with all of his super surgical team!
