Today was my big trip to the hospital. I saw it on the calendar so when Mom tried being sneaky about it this morning, she wasn’t fooling me. I played, “catch me if you can” thinking if I made Mom really late, they wouldn’t be able to do surgery. It didn’t work. I was over at the doctor’s house bright and early. Even though they pretended to be super happy to see me, I was afraid something bad was going to happen.
What really scared me was when Mom left me. She walked right out that door to her car and forgot to bring me with her!!! The nerve!!
Well, even though it was a scary day for me, I was really good. Here’s a picture of me when I was ready for surgery. Notice that nobody has to hold me? I’m always Mr. Mellow at the doctor’s house and they just love me. Now my little brother is an entirely different story!
They gave me some stuff to go to sleep so I wouldn’t feel anything. This is a picture of me off in dreamland.
I’m glad to see they had me all snuggled in. They said I did really good through the whole procedure.
Here I am after surgery. My eyes look a little droopy but they’re wide open now. Mom was so happy to see me. She said they took care of two teeth….one on each side. At least I’m still balanced. MOL!!!
I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing great. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes. Poor little Steinbeck was really confused since I was gone all day. I don’t think he knows what happened yet.
Mom sends a big thanks to the doctor lady for taking pictures of me while I was there so I could share them on our blog.
