21st OCT | inset day today, meaning half term has begun. New classrooms have just been opened up at school, so we’ve all been issued new timetables. Task for today is to tackle the rather long list that is my to-do for half term!
good news! they got the needle out and it looks like they did it via that huge new scar on his throat instead of having to go through his sternum like they were worried about.
he’s no longer in the ICU so I could go see him and give him kisses. he was very smoochy with mebut also very growly at the vet nurse who I am told had just flushed his chest with saline again.
They’re flushing saline through the infected area every 6 hours at the moment and have a drain in, they’ve got him on fluids, antibiotics and painkillers and the tube in his nose is oxygen from ICU which they won’t take out till he is discharged in case he needs it again.
the vet said that he’s doing well, really well. and if he eats and everything goes well he might be able to come home tomorrow night. I’ll check that the drain will come out before he comes home tho because even if he joins Bus in the cone zone and can’t get at his drain, the others still can and probably will.
Like how they try to lick off each other’s flea treatments and immediately regret it every single time.
I’m getting a call this afternoon with a quote on his stay so far and an estimate of how much the end result will be.
I left him some of his favourite food and my partners pillowcase in his cat bed so he can feel more at home. he gave it many smooches. they said if he pees on it we won’t get it back but w.e it’s just a pillowcase. (I should probably tell my partner I stole it tho)
thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to funding this life saving operation I love you all so much, please cross your fingers and toe beans for us that he heals up well and can come home soon!
