Update on Ki

Ki seems to be comfortable, and happy to be home. He has to wear a collar to keep him from licking the incision. It's flexible, made of Tyvek or a similar synthetic material, rather than one of the rigid plastic cones. While he appeared to be somewhat annoyed by it at first, he seems to have gotten used to it, for which I am grateful.

He is eating, though not as voraciously as usual. He is pee'ing too, which is good. As of this morning, though, he has yet to have a bowel movement. He should have had one by now. I will skip Tai Chi class tonight and go straight home to check on him. If he hasn't had a bowel movement during the day, I will have to take him back to the vet.

He really wants to go outside. We're supposed to keep him inside for two weeks while the incision heals. It's going to be a long two weeks for all of us.

But overall he seems comfortable and fairly happy, so that's good.
