Thanks again, everyone!
Remmy came through just fine! The vet said it was a boring and uneventful procedure, just the way we wanted it lol. He is a great vet. I do agree that it was tough to see him under general. My sister came with me and like I told her, it hardly looked like he was breathing! You had to watch close and for a long time to see a breath. It was also tough watching him after walking in circles trying to figure out how to see to his left. It was really cute after though.. he had us all laughing for a good long time. He just wouldn't stop whinnying! All different pitches and lengths of whinnying. I REALLY wish I had a video camera with me!.
Since we have over an hour ride home, we are going to go back to pick him up tomorrow. He would like him to be stalled for a few days. I think that'll be one of the roughest parts.. He HATES being inside.. We'll see how it works.
I have a few before, during and after pictures I'll attach.

So glad he came through it okay! What a lucky boy to have someone love him so much. Sadly some people would just euthanise :( He's a handsome chap!
