They're back, they're back! Everyone scatter! Just kidding, no need to hide really - there seems to be a great deal of "mystery" cat hair here at the house, so I had to fess up to having my friends over to wait with me. Mommy and Daddy are looking around to see if they can give everyone chin scratches and head butts to thank you for all your kindness and support.
Daddy's nerve was successfully microwaved by the Gamma Knife, and I know all your purrs helped. Daddy is a lucky man, because the doctors also discovered he had a small benign tumor that would have eventually caused him other problems, my parents were really shocked. As it turns out the tumor was something they could easily treat with the same machine, so they asked if my parents wanted it "thrown in" like some kind of odd cosmic two-fer or medical BOGO!
Daddy looks like he was slapped about in the face but the swelling is going down. Mommy is tired too (although I'm still unclear on what she did, except be the chauff-him). I will be on duty as nurse cat offering whatever care or amusement they need. We are all so thankful to everyone for your purrs and purayers. We are again touched by the kindness of cats and of the humans they choose to spend their lives with.
