Post 1024: Here’s Andy…

I don’t know how long I’ll be in Scottsbluff getting the dialysis fistula emplaced and the catheter currently used for dialysis replaced (two separate processes and two separate surgeons) or how goofy I’ll be after anesthesia and for how long, so I’m putting together this little “dose” of kitty photos, featuring portraits of Andy, to tide you over till I’m able to function rationally again.

Here's a new photo of Andy. Notice that his "horns" are up! Oh! Oh!

Let’s start with this photo from yesterday as a point of reference. Horns up!

Pretty decent, but...

Pretty decent, but…a cluttered background.

Woohoo! Noble Andy will save our world!

    • Thanks! I especially appreciate your comment since you have one of the better nature blogs I’ve found. The Dutch doesn’t always translate very well with Google translate, but it’s always well enough that I can figure out the meaning. Anyway, I really enjoy your blog! The photography is excellent, too.

    • All went well in the surgery, and I have very little discomfort from them. In fact, though the surgeon wrote out a prescription for Percocet to deal with the pain, all I’ve needed was a little Tylenol yesterday. I just haven’t had much pain from it., I’m a bit amazed!

      Yes, Andy is a bit regal! Maybe I should have called him LeRoy, the Anglecized verson of “Le roi”!

  1. Those are great photos and i see in the comments above that you are home and the surgeries are done- that is great news.

    • Yes, and I am grateful that plain aspirin is taking care of what little pain and discomfort I have. My surgeon gave me a prescription for Percocet, which is like a cannon ball for a BB problem. I won’t get it filled.

    • Yes, they did! I think the boys look really hot the closer they get to natural Persian hair length. If matting wasn’t a problem, I’d let the go “full Persian”. They are smoke Persians, a very pretty variation, but the full effect requires going “full Persian”.

  2. Gorgeous pictures of Andy. I should say smashingly handsome pics of Andy.

    Take care Doug. We’ll hear from you when you can string a sentence together. My thoughts are with you my friend.

    Jean and Shoko

      • Already!! Holy man…am I glad you’re back. I guess I was worried. I had a terrible feeling we wouldn’t hear from you for days. Bet the kitties were happier than hell-o to see you. Take er easy my friend. If, you don’t feel like setting out a post…don’t bother….we can wait. I’m so happy…you’d think it was me that had this operation.

  3. When I woke, the very first thing I did was pray for the procedures to go well and for you to be able to return home to the best possible life asap.
    Be well, Doug!

  4. Thank you dear Weggie, your little friends are so lovely 🙂 as always. Be sure you will be in my thoughts, my best wishes and prayers for you, Love, nia
