the latest on the alphie front:
he went through an e-collar stage, which was sort of sad to watch. all recent dents in the walls, doors, and couch can probably be attributed to this 5-day period. also, i shot two very short phone videos. you'll need to turn and twist your head to watch.
this is alphie as of last week, with a paw that looks pretty normal, except that since the doc removed most of the paw ligaments and a good chunk of bone (replaced by metal plates and six kitty-sized screws), his flexion isn't equal to the right side. he's back to playing, snoozing, and cooing at 3am, which is more than i ever could have asked for.
