Chip- AND A Fearless Five Quilt blog mention!!!!

My Chip a Dee Doo Da, the scourge of the USPS and UPS, as well as all enemies foreign and domestic, had a good night.  He ate his dinner, as previously noted, and was given a half tablet of Tramadol in a pill pocket, to keep him comfy last night.  We incorrectly thought that he would sleep in Thai's rolling camouflage command post next to my side of the bed, due to the wearing of the Cone of Fame (Thai sleeps in Ginger's pink command post located next to my side of the bed, so that he is seen in public in his macho man rolling throne- NOT going to ruin his manly reputation)  NOOOOOOO!!!!  We had to sleep curled up next to the Mom person and keep her up all night as we tried to find a comfy position under the covers for the COF.  I gave up all pretence of sleep at 3:36 AM and just lay there so Chip could relax and finally catch some ZZZZZ's.  He had bouts of shivering between his bouts of grogginess- typical post surgical reaction, and what I did not expect from him.  Kept him rolled up in blankies while the shivering passed and then he would sleep with his elevated by the COF.  This morning he ate his breakfast (at least the canned) but did not pee or poop- AND he can get the COF open!  He is going to be a handful but he is doing much better.  Gave him a second half tablet of Tramadol to keep him calm so that he does not try to lick his stitches since the COF is not going to be the deterrent we had hoped it would be!

Just glad he is home!  Test results on the cyst due late this week or early next week, but I am not worried. 

Chip is Chipper!
