Well, here I am sitting at work while my mother takes my poor Oscar to the vet for his bladder stone surgery. :sad: They gave me some Metacam to give him yesterday because he was crying every time he peed and I was a wreck. Now I'm just a wreck because I'm worried about him. He hates being at the vet especially because he's a rescue cat and I'm pretty sure he thinks I'll leave him there. In fact, they won't usually keep him because he gets so stressed the vet is afraid he'll have a heart attack! :cry2::cry2:
I'm also worried because he's at risk for the surgery (mostly waking back up :eek: according to the vet) because of his age and his asthma.
Oh dear. Now I'm sitting here crying at work. :cry: Ok, time to think about something else!! Everybody cross your claws for my boy!!! :pray::needhug::pray:

:grouphug: It's so hard worrying about them and not being able to be there. I know how you feel. When does he go into surgery? Will they call you immediately after they are done?
Try not to worry too much. I'm sure they will do everything possible to make sure he will be okay.:pray:

i don't know if it will help your kitty, but when Ozzie has to stay over, the vet puts a sheet over the front of his cage, he says it helps calm him.

The vet said his bladder was very, very inflamed. Apparently blood vessels build up around it when it gets irritated and she said it was very variegated. But she says he's awake and alert and feeling his wheaties! He'll be there overnight and I can pick him up in the morning.
Thanks everyone for all your support! This was so stressful... I really appreciate all your well wishes.

Oh wow, I'm so glad everything turned out well. Poor guy, an inflamed bladder sounds so painful.

I know AncientGirl. I keep thinking of how miserable I've been when I've had a UTI. It's one of the worst feelings... Poor kitty!!! I'm so glad he's doing better - maybe I can stop worrying about him for a while now. Between the asthma and this, I feel like I've been worried about him for a year.

I'm glad he's doing so well, rjesak :grouphug: Probably won't remember much about today, either--dogs seem to forget things when they're under anesthesia, anyway. :o So do people. So maybe he won't be so stressed. :fingerscr
:goodvibes: for a speedy recovery!!!

Oscar's still doing well, but the vet called and said to come get him today. He had pulled his lines out three times and was trying to climb out of the cage. They figured he'd be calmer at home. They also said I could give him a small dose (4-7 mg) of Benadryl tonight if he is too uncomfortable in the cone.
Aside from that he seems to be very happy to be home. Purring and resting comfortably - he's only tried to lick at it a little.
Think I'm going to go out and get children's Benadryl since that would probably be easier to dose!
