– The Visor didn’t get here today after all
– Hospital bills are arriving from Jacob’s Birth. Insurance companies suck.
– Damien requires a partial mandiblectamy – that is, about half his jaw needs to be removed.
OK, let’s be honest – a quarter of his jaw has succumbed to either cancer or a mast of some sort, and doesn’t actually exist as bone any more. Whatever this is may be working it’s way toward the left quarter as well. The doctor recommends that it go.
The good news is, his kidneys are fine, so he should be able to handle general anesthesia. But since he did have some renal failure over the summer, there’s still a not-so-happy chance that he might not come out of it.
He’s one sick kitty. Tomorrow he goes under the knife, and we’ll see how it goes from there….
