He went back for a checkup after a week of healing. From the outside he looks great. And he thinks he is all better. He spends so much time nagging, whining and pleading to go outside, to go for a walk or a run. However, unfortunately for him (and us) he has to keep it easy for another week, complete with cone. It also appears that the kidneys and all are healing nicely, however - further tests have indicated that perhaps the liver is not working properly -which is probably what lead to the poor guys issues. We now have to figure out what to do to keep him healthy.
