I  spoke to the Vet on Friday and it looks like Chesty is probably not a good candidate for Lithotripsy and  most likely they’ll do a *mini* procedure on Monday — kind of like a laparoscopic  type procedure with just a small incision for the cystoscope. Chesty would be embarrassed for me to share this but his small penis is an issue here as well as the number of stones.

At any rate, he goes in Monday morning and they’ll do the least invasive procedure needed to remove the stones.

On a more quilty note, I finished my brown centered HeartStrings blocks and will assemble the top over the next few days.

    I will be sending good thoughts for Chesty’s procedure. I’m sure all will go well. Poor little guy. Will be waiting to hear when it’s all over.

    Poor little angel. I hope all goes well for him on Monday. I also can’t wait to see your brown HeartStrings quilt — I am interested to see what other fabrics you put with the brown. I have a large stash of brown for some reason (?) and can’t think how to use it up. Take care!

    I was thinking about Chesty today. Wishing him a successful operation and a speedy recovery. I hope it goes by fast for you too.

    It’s just like a Mom to embarrass you in public! Be sure to have the Vet put them in a jar for your mantle to finish the humiliation! Hope all goes well, and no kidney stones are found also. I bet he’ll feel much better without a bucket of gravel in his bladder!

    I hope everything goes well for Chesty. Hang in there – I know how bad I would feel if my little Buddy had a problem.

    Sure hope things go quickly and well for Chesty. So both of you are out of pain soon and he’s home with you as soon as possible– better for you to care for him. I’ll bet you’re missing him. Good luck tomorrow!

    Poor Chesty…I hope all goes well! And…is the wedding quilt for the couple who is making Keith a grandpa and your son Adam a dad? LOL
