    thanks Melissa
    GOOD NEWS...
    he came out of surgery OK..
    surgeon found absesses, infection on prostate,
    but no "retained testicle"...
    thank goodness he is fine......now i can breathe again...
    we will have to ultra sound him in a few months,
    make sure this doesn't happen again...
    but the surgeon said "he is such a nice boy....hope
    he is healthy in the future."

    thanks for the support, guys...
    he is my little therapy buddy...

    Yes of course he is! Sparky did a good job!

    Hopefully you are now both off the endless antibiotics train.

    So happy for both of you!

    Oh boy! You worded that nicely.....I would have failed badly with the verbiage on that one.

    Nice to have our mascot fully functioning again......

    I'm glad his surgery went well. Now, hopefully you can put this all behind you with his abscesses gone. I'm sure he'll recover quickly. Rest well and I hope your pain gets a little better now that the stress is down.
    Be happy!

    You win.

    I am very happy for Jess and Sparky that this long ordeal is finally over! What a long road with so many meds.

    vet said he was doing great...
    he looks a little confused, but Tramadol is
    a strong pain med...making him sleepy...
    he is also on antibiotics for another 4 weeks, for
    healing...
