Well since I don’t have much time to type, I have some petting and walking and bladder expressing to do, here is a bit are some pictures of the Kane man after he got home. BTW, if you think you can help us pay for Kane’s surgery click on this link to find out more about how to give.  Even if you can only give $5 or $10 it will mean a lot.  We have already raised over $500 to go toward his medical costs- that means we’ve raised about 15% of the cost of his care and surgery.  I would love to make it to $1,000.

Perhaps I should show you his little corner.  Doctor’s orders, he has to be kept in a small area to minimize movement.

Here is another view… (more…)

He will be home by 5 p.m.  If I find enough time to drag myself away from petting him I will be posting a bunch of Kane pictures tonight.  Heck, I might even throw in some Lucius pictures too.  See you soon.

The doctor called this morning.  You know it isn’t going to be a good call when they say, “We have some good news and some bad news for you.”  Of course she told me the goods news first, and of course all I could think of was, well what is the bad news??? (more…)

Today my wife and daughter got a chance to go visit Kane at the hospital- I am quite jealous.  Judging by the pictures all three of them had a lot of fun.

My wife got to meet Kane’s doctors- who are by the way totally awesome!  You couldn’t imagine kinder, more knowledgeable, nicer, more considerate and patient doctors than the three doctors (one is a professor and the other two are residents).

They were even nice enough to answer my question about whether life in a vet hospital is anything like Scrubs.  Their answer.  It is more like Scrubs than Grey’s Anatomy.

Well without further adieu, here are tow videos of Sasha and Kane playing around.  Well mostly it is her playing around and Kane tolerating her.

And this…

I know, I know, that is probably too much cuteness to handle at one time so take a second, take a deep breath and click the read more bottom… (more…)

THANK YOU ALL!  Because of your kindness and generosity we are half way to our goal of raising $1,000 to help with the costs of Kane’s $4,000 treatment and surgery.  If you want to help us make it all the way to our goal (and possibly beyond) just click here for more information on how to help out.  We appreciate all that you guys and gals have done.  It is amazing watching the blogging community come together for our boy Kane.

Also, it is only a few more days until Kane comes home. (more…)

We made our first trip to the hospital today.  We discussed the issue of our payment plan, received the unfortunate news that it appeared we might not be able to get any grants to cover the surgery (keep praying about this), and we paid off part of the bill.  [BTW: If you do want to help defray some of the costs of Kane’s surgery just click this sentence.]

On a more positive note we saw Kane for about an hour.  We walked outside with Kane and the doctors and learned how to help him pee by squeezing on his bladder- fun times.  We saw some improvement in him placing a small amount of weight on his hind legs- YEAH!

Then we went into a comfy visiting room where Sasha prayed for Kane and we hung out together for a while.  Here are some of the pictures and video from our visit.

How about the cutest thing first?  Here is a video of Sasha and Kane together- sorry for the no sound, our digital cam stinks.

Next, the surgery scars

I told him that he was lucky in a way since chicks dig scars. (more…)
