Jasper had his surgery this morning. It took over 3 hours to complete. The PU part went well. The vet had a bad feeling about the previous surgery so she opened that up as well. There was a large ball in this area. The fat here had changed. She had a term for it but I forget. Basically his fat had turned and became hard. The fat had also bonded to the side of his spleen. So she removed a lot of fat.

She also asked if we minded if he stayed in longer. She thought we want him home as soon as possible. I said we wanted him to stay in there as long as possible! So he will be there until at least Monday. If his sutures go again like the last time, thats it, so we for sure want him there where he can't run and jump around.

I just went to see him. Besides shivering, he was purring away, only an hour after the surgery. What a trooper! They have heat packs in with him to keep him warm and have constructed a tent with blankets around his cage to make him feel safer.

I'm so glad Jasper is doing better and had the surgery. Pippin took a turn for the worse this morning and they had to re-open him. He had urine leaking out below the urethral opening. The vet found that the lip of the urethra had slipped in under the skin and was leaking into the void below. That's been fixed and I feel better now.
I think it's a great idea to leave Jasper there until at least Monday. BTW, I grew up in NB. Small world eh?

Just read all through this post - I had looked before but had no advice so remained a 'lurker'. I do hope all cats mentioned get well soon - it is really scary to see what can happen and to know what you have had to deal with. Poor Jasper especially has been through a huge amount! But there is so much information in here, and I am grateful for it as Wellington had surgery tonight to clear a blockage. I will know more details in the morning but at least I now can ask some intelligent questions. Good vibes to everyone.

It's good to hear that Jasper's surgery went well. I hope he continues to improve.

Healing thoughts and vibes to Pippen and Wellington also. I hope both of them do well after surgery. More hugs to all.

Devlyn, How is Pippin doing?

Jasper was suppose to come home yesterday but we are a bit scared so we asked if he can stay a few more days. If he comes home, he will be jumping up on the window sills and that makes me very nervous!

Pippin is scheduled to come home today at 5:30 so I'm pretty excited. I missed my boy but I am glad they kept him so long and got him well on his road to recovery. I will be confining him to a large dog kennel that is backed up to a covered litter box. I only hope that he can get in the box with his silly e-collar on lol!
I, too, am worried about him jumping on stuff and being too active and hurting himself. With the pain meds and the e-collar I expect he'll be pretty clumsy.
From what they are telling me, he is peeing in his box and not dribbling anymore, but I will find out for sure from the vet this afternoon.

Thanks for the concern and I hope Jasper is doing well enough to come home soon.

We are planning on taking Jasper home this Friday. The vet says he is well enough to come home now but she understands our request to have him stay longer. Yesterday when I went in for a visit, they let us have the run of their back rooms so he could get some exercise. We went exploring and even played with a mousie for a bit. Anytime the staff would walk by, they would stop and give him a little pat. They have taken such good care of him. HIs stomach looks great, better than the last surgery. His other incisions don't look as nice as there is still a bit of blood in the area. He is dripping but it is no longer bloody.

I'm glad to hear that Pippin is coming home!

Hope both boys are OK.

How's Jasper doing? Is he home yet?
Pippin's doing well but I still watch him like a hawk. No blockages though so that's exciting. He's still not eating a great deal, but I give him 4-5 small meals throughout the day when I can to keep him eating. At least I'm not having to syringe feed now. He picks at his food though. It's like watching a picky child eat.
It's funny though, I'm so busy watching him and taking care of him, that I'm not eating much myself. lol
I'd love to hear an update on Jasper.

Jasper came home last Thursday. He is no longer on any medications and looks great. Theres a twinkle in his eyes that hasn't been there for a couple of months. He is adjusting well to the new house and loves to sit at the window watching for birds.

He will go in tomorrow to get his stitches out. He will be very glad as the collar is driving him nuts. I've noticed that he has started to groom it just like its a piece of his body. He is so funny!

He has dripped pee a few times since coming home, twice when sleeping and once when my mother in law picked him up by the stomach. I am wondering if it takes them some time to develop muscle strength down there.

He is eating like a pig, just like old times. I'm so happy to see him eat. He lost 3.5 pounds in the past 2 months!

I am amazed at the care he received. He was really doted on by the vet staff. The total cost for his surgery and care was 138 dollars. WOW! The only cost was when the other vet had to put a cathedar in for his blockage. Our vet did the surgery for free and there was no charge for his week and a half visit. They are amazing!

That's great news...I'm glad Jasper's recovery is going well. I hope your mother in law was forgiving about the dribble.

I can picture him grooming his collar, that's funny. I bet he'll be happy to get rid of that.

And only $138?? Wow. I think that outdoes a bunch of the amazing stuff that my vet has done for us. That's great.

I'm so happy to hear that Jasper is doing well. Pippin is too and gets to have his collar off tomorrow.
What an unbelievably awesome price!! I'm so jealous that your vet helped you out, but glad for you!
Here's hoping our boys continue to stay healthy and healthy for a long time after this.
