Myst just finished with surgery. It took longer than expected, but he is as ok as can be expected and will be spending the night at the vet's. Whew! Everyone is looking relieved around here, but recovery will take some time, they tell me.
That's good! Thank-you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I am still looking for Myst around here. Surely he is just under a bed or something. Pardon me now while I go check for him.
