I'm still alive...From Max

This day did not start off well for me! I got up early this morning because Jonah had a bad dream and woke up screaming around 5 a.m. He had a tough morning which meant I had a tough morning. I had NO idea this was the day I was going to see Dr. Gregg for surgery. GULP!!! My mom took this picture of me a few minutes ago. I am not feeling very good right now. Daddy picked me up from Dr. Gregg's office around 5:00 p.m. and I've been pretty mopey since then.

Here is a picture of my incision. I had laser surgery to remove the stones in my bladder. The incision is around 2 inches long. That is a pretty big inision for a guy my size!!

And now, for your viewing pleasure...my bladder stones. How awful do these things look? Just in case you don't understand the anatomy of a toy poodle, I will give you a little lesson. My bladder is very small compared to what yours may be. These two stones took up 1/3 of my bladder. That should explain some of my problems.

I must go rest now. I have several days of recovery ahead of me but I think all will be okay. Thanks to those of you who have been concerned about me.
Before I go, I though you'd like to see what I have in my bed to make me feel better. No, Jonah didn't give Brown Bear to me, my mommy did. PLEASE don't tell Jonah.
