Update...

Last night Bubbie got to shivering so bad, and we could hear his breathing so called and met the vet at the office. They kept him, but I was out there today and our regular vet said he is doing fine and that all looks good. Said his lungs are clear and no temperature. I swear I feel like an idiot but I don't remember exactly what he said about the shivering...I think kind of a reaction from the surgery, but I am not sure. Anyway, he had rather I call and it be nothing than to ignor things. I am letting them board him a few days till the baby shower is over with. I just could not do anything with him here...had to keep my eyes right on him.

Normally, he sleeps on the floor most of the time, other than he gets up beside Roger and then sometimes takes over that chair. But the biggest part of the time, he sleeps in front of the tv. The first two days he was home, he was in the chair or on the couch almost constantly, and I had to watch him like a hawk to keep him from jumping down.

They took the bandage off and it stays off...everything looks really good. We can go visit him. So will do that daily, I suppose. I have had such a scared feeling about this, but the vet seems confident that things are going to be okay. So I will try to keep my courage up.
I have not been out to take any pictures in ages, so am resorting to a couple from the summer of barns. These are different barns, but they sure remind me of each other. They are not in the best of focus...I used the sharpen tool on both I believe. These were taken as my husband drove us down the road.

Rose, I'm sorry about Bubbie's latest set-back---but it sounds as if he is going to be okay. Praise God!!! I know he's like a child to you--and so very special. I pray that he returns to good health SOON.

Great barn pictures..
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm with Betsy, hope it's just a bit of a set-back and he continues to improve. We'll stay tuned!

And Rose, the barns look great & they really do look like the same one - someone copied off the other, huh! hehehe!!!

Nice to see the summer barn scenes. Hope Bubbie recuperates smoothly from now on.

Oh no poor Bubbie, they are just our babies, I would also have been concerned. Maybe with so much fur shaved Bubbie is cold, but you did the right thing taking him to the vet! GET BETTER BUBBIE!!

I sure hope the vet is right about Bubbie and that everything will be fine. I know how concerned you are about him.
I love the barn pictures.

Hang in there, Rose! It is scary when they are that sick and you have to try to watch them and do other stuff, too. I have had a couple of very ill cats and remember how worried I was constantly. I think it is a "moom thing". If the vet says he is doing well, I'm sure he is. Love the red barn...so very red!

It sounds like Bubbie will be fine but I know the anguish of waiting. Hang in there.
The barns sure do look similiar - I like them.
Baby shower - oh, aren't you getting excited!!!

Beautiful red barns, Rose.

I'm so glad Bubbie doesn't need a bandage anymore. I hope he likes it at the vet's!

Have fun working on the baby shower!
