And now I'll be over here collapsed in relief...  
Little George made it through his op okay. In fact my many near heart attacks throughout the day, waiting for them to phone me were probably worse than anything he went through.

We took him in at 8:15am and they told me to ring at 2pm for an update if we hadn't heard anything. When I rang at 2 he was actually only just about to go in for surgery. Got a phone call about 3:30pm to say he'd come round find and had been eating within 30mins which was excellent. We picked him up at 5:30 and he was surprisingly lively and bright.

I had to get some supplies for keeping him and Fred separated, namely some mesh to put down the cage between them. George did not like that at all - he was rumbling at Fred through the mesh, trying to get at him and be dominant as always. They both seem perfectly content with each other still though so I don't have too many worries about reintroducing them.

George has been eating well, snoozing as usual, grooming and strutting around. Basically, he barely seems to realise he had anything done. He doesn't seem bothered by the stitches and I'm not actually entirely convinced that he is flexible enough to get at them but the wound looks very clean and neat so far.

He's back to the vets of Saturday morning for a check up and to see if he'll need any antibiotics.

So, fingers crossed and touch ALL the wood that he'll be okay now.

Thanks to everyone who wished him well and tried to stop me freaking out today. But at least it's all over now, I can relax a bit.

Oh and go back to work tomorrow.

Little George says thanks too!
