My vet is so thoughtful (and also knows how worried I can get) and sent me the following updates. She also sent me this picture. I think he was just coming out of sedation here. (I brought his blanket for him).
Hi Lisa, Reggie is ready to go under anesthesia. He required special handling, but no extra charge for it as you're such a great kitty momma. He really was as good as he personally could be. I adore his tufts of fur on his ears. We'll let you know when he's in recovery. He's third in the lineup. His CBC and internal organ function screen were within normal limits.
He is in recovery and is extremely lovable right now, lots of nose-to-nose contact. He can go home after 4. Did great!
