Fudge came home this afternoon. He's groggy and wobbly from the pain meds, but he's sleeping comfortably in the living room where I can keep an eye on him.
The great news is that there are no masses on his vital organs. Yeah!! That was my worst fear.
The less great news is that he has a disc problem in his back. It looks from the xrays as if we caught it pretty early and Dr B thinks he should make a good recovery. He's taking anti-inflammatory meds and pain pills and if he isn't feeling better in a couple days he'll get some muscle relaxants. We're hoping he won't need those. He'll need strict bed rest for a week.
It may sound like a lot of bad stuff is going on, but they're probably all related and controllable.
His birthday party has been delayed for a couple days till he feels more like himself. He should sleep better tonight. I know I'll wake up dozens of times to check on him, but that's what moms do.
