Hey Leaguers. I know less about today than Jamie, but it sounds like Mel's surgery went well.
Jamie dropped him off at 7:00, and heard back from the vet about 2:45. It sounds like the surgery went as planned. As of 2:45, Mel was awake and resting.
Jamie called again at 5:30, and he'd already been up, gone wee, and was hopped up on goofballs.
She's going to pick him up tomorrow afternoon (we're not really sure when). She has to get some serious pick up instructions.
Jason has Lucy tonight, and maybe tomorrow night, so Mel can rest when he gets home. Jeff the Cat will simply get punted if he interferes.
I want to thank everyone for the well wishes and prayers (thanks, Ma!). Mel seems to be on the road to recovery.
It seems we were misinformed. We can't pick up Mel today. Which means Lucy has been destroying Jason's house today for no good reason.
I'll leave it to Jamie and the commenst section to fill in more details.
