Post-Surgery Update on Rufie

From left: Rufus, Ivy, and Sam, keeping the soft spots warm last night

Just got off the phone with the vet - Rufus came through surgery OK, but he isn't awake yet. Doctor Everett said Rufie's injuries were worse than they appeared on the x-rays, so he wasn't able to fix it as much as he'd hoped. He was able to do a partial fix, and the rest we just have to be patient and see if Rufie heals up well.

Rufus has a full cast on his leg, and will be going back every two weeks to have the cast cut off, cut smaller, and re-applied. I hope all will be well for him, and that he will heal up beautifully.

Many thanks to everyone for your care and concern. It's really helped our family to stay positive and upbeat throughout this whole ordeal.

I will post another update when he comes home tomorrow.
