XO's Sympathy Sickness

As those who follow this blog know I have been suffering with a kidney stone for several weeks. Over the past few days XO has been acting more and more strangely. Finally yesterday I took him to the local animal hospital. The diagnosis: he had a blockage in his urinary track. They gave me a choice: an expensive (for me) surgery or put him down as the blockage would result in his death within a couple of days. I have now joined the ranks of those who have spent a large quantity of money on a animal. I elected the surgery. They put in a catheter. The also gave him antibiotics and pain medications. After the surgery his urine was draining and although uncomfortable he is recovering. (It will take a while for my bank account to recover!) He will spend another day in the hospital and should come home tomorrow.

Fair winds and following seas.
