Thank you so much to everyone! All your healing vibes and prayers and thoughts have been so heartening and I am sure helped make the surgery go well.
Mr Darcy was in surgery for nearly six hours. The specialist found that his cervical vertebra were malformed and they have cut all the bone out that was compressing the spinal column; and stopped the ligament from compressing the spine as well. Mr Darcy came into a bit of trouble with the anaesthetic when his spinal cord was de-compressed, but he got through that as well!
We won’t know for a few days whether his spinal column has been permanently damaged.
I am going to visit him tomorrow. I am looking forward to seeing him again so much, even though he will probably be in a very sad state.
I’m not sure when he’s coming home, hopefully in the next few days.
Well I guess at some point I better change the “about Wobblers” page as it turns out he didn’t technically have Wobblers after all!
