Please keep the Critter in your prayers

The Critter is having emergency surgery this afternoon. Yesterday the doctor discovered he has stones and today he was unable to go to the bathroom. Please say a prayer for him. I'll keep you up-to-date.

Greatly appreciate it.
Tom

UPDATE:
The little Critter came of out surgery just fine this afternoon. They removed approximately 15 tiny stones that had clustered into a bigger one. The doctor (I'm still waiting for a return phone call from the technicians who are keeping watch over him tonight) told us that he was resting comfortably, and that his tongue "was sticking out and was showing good color." The doctor said he wont know the full extent of his condition and recovery until tomorrow. If all goes well, I should be able to pick him up from the vet by noon. I will post again tomorrow with another update.

A big THANK YOU to all of you for your prayers and concern. God bless you all!

He is sooo cute! St. Francis is the one to turn to for prayers. And us, of course!

Awww....

I told my little critters, and they promised to keep him in mind, too.

Adrienne said...

Glad he's coming home. Get him a little kids T-shirt to wear so he can't lick his stitches. Goodwill will have scads. I like to avoid a cone when possible.

I've been so worried all night.

Jaimie said...

What a relief! I'm so glad he came through the surgery ok. Poor little guy, what a trooper! You two take care!

Katie Alender said...
