from my brother:
yesterday we brought number 5 to the clinic because it seemed like he was getting blocked again. we thought we were going to have to do surgery right away. then the doctor ran a catheter just to unblock him, and said that the difference was so big from the last time he’d run the catheter, that he thinks we can just give number 5 some more time and let the crystals dissolve more, and surgergy might not be necessary immediately, even though it is still a good idea to get it done soon. so, we brought him home for the night, and he’s been very happy, and he peed this morning before i went to work, so he doesn’t seem to be blocking up again so far. so everything is very hopeful.
thanks for the continued support and energy etc… *hugs* number 5 loves you!
