The vetrinarian just called me with an update on Dex. He made it through surgery, which lasted more than 3 hours. The piece of string went all the way from his stomach, through his entire intestinal tract, and out the, um, other end. The doctor said he is doing okay right now, although he is not “out of the woods” yet. They are keeping him overnight and will give me an update first thing in the morning.

Dex made it through the night without problems, but the doctor said that heâ€™s a bit groggy still (the cat, not the doctor). We should be able to pick him up this evening as long as everthing goes well today.
