Anyway.....medical update: my brother had a successful procedure on Monday, and hopefully this will help him for a while. That's good news!
My husband is really ready to get on with his surgery. December 19th! All will be well.
In the bad news: Our sweet little Pyewacket kitty jumped up on the flat surface of the wood stove chasing a moth, and badly burned all four paws!!!! Terrible. I rushed him to the emergency animal hospital. He is on pain medication and antibiotics; the vet recommended a special kitty litter called "Yesterday News", which is made from recycled newspapers and is smooth, soft and in pellets. He is also afflicted with the "Cone of Shame", and I have isolated him in our old kitty condo that they lived in for the first few weeks after we brought them home from New Jersey. (That was 17 months ago!!) We are miserable for him, poor little Pye-Pye.
