Buddha went back to the veterinary emergency room yesterday and again today with the symptoms of a blockage and a general air of miserableness. He's home now and okay, but it's become clear that we're going to have to go ahead and have the surgery performed on him. Unfortunately, there's no polite way to describe the surgery, other than to say that they're basically going to, well, cut him another hole. >.<
That will probably happen Wednesday, the day before I fly out for FC. @wheeee!
