My little brother Kubrick is doing well!

My little brother, or as I have been calling him lately Franken-Kubster is doing very well.  The surgery went well, then he was out of it because of the sedation.  He's got some mean stitches and they should come out in a few more days.

The vet sent the mass to the lab, because it didn't look like fatty tissue.  The results are in, and it was a benign tumor which resulted from an allergic reaction to a vaccine.  Because he was vaccinated at a shelter before being adopted, we don't know which vaccine caused such reaction.  The vet thinks that in the future, a titer test can be administered to avoid vaccinations.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful warm thoughts/prayers/vibes/virtual hugs everybody sent.  Our next trip was put on hold, but now that he's healing, we're headed to Long Beach, CA at the end of July!
