Day 5


Last night  Purrkins got out of his closet bed and into my makeshift floor bed!

He got under the covers and curled up with me. We both got to get some sleep! So happy to feel him tuck in with me again!

His incision looks great it is not oozed or bruised. I saw a lot of pictures before his surgery they looked scary.

This isn’t scary at all! Beautiful job Dr. Rubin!


He is insisting he gets out of this room. I took a couple of pictures you can see how excited he is.


And then mom says no. Not so happy


Tonight will be his last night of the Buprenorphine. He will still be on the Gabapentin for a bit.

I know he is feeling good he was up more today. I ran the vacuum, and he RAN 🎉🎊out of the closet and up to the bed! I could not believe what I just saw! It looked like Purrkins on all 4! It was a fantastic moment!  We celebrate each thing he does!

I watched him before the surgery and wondered “how will he do that on three? I’m so happy to say he is showing us how!

His brother Saxton came into the room more today and stayed after checking on Purrkins. I am thinking we are making progress each day!
