Playing Doctor

Looks like you can just call us Mr. and Mrs. Dr for the weekend.

Our poor little Max had some impromptu surgery today. On Wednesday this week, out of no where, we woke up and his entire eye and eye area were completely swollen. Initially they were treating it for a cold in his eye, but when Nicholas took him back in this morning...well, let's just say there was an explosion. I will spare you all the details because I know I certainly wouldn't want to read about them, but he had a very large abscess above his eye that burst while in the doctors office. THANK goodness it happened there. I am quite certain I would have fainted at the site of all the blood. I'm still having trouble looking at it. I've felt like I'm going to puke more than once.

So he's back home now, looking quite pitiful, but being loved more than ever.

Addy and Max can relate... they both have weird growth's on their eyes. I hope he feels better soon.

Poor puppy Max - I'm sorry about his eye problem, but I'm sure he'll have a great recovery with all of the love you have to give him.

Oh this makes me SO SAD!!! There is nothing worse than a sick / hurt puppy!! Wishing Max a very speedy recovery...he is so adorable.

Oh no! Get well soon, Maxie Moo!
P.s. Thanks for sparring the details. A certain SOMEBODY couldn't not have handled it.
