Hi, I know, I haven't been over here and I wanted to just give you an update. Baxter (our beloved 11 year old dog) had emergency surgery last week and we are waiting for some test results. This started on Thursday night, so I apologize for being out of touch (if in fact you're trying to get ahold of me). He's back at home and recovering very well from the surgery, and we are just trying to enjoy our time together in case we find out that it's going to be shorter than we had hoped.
I have been taking photos of him non-stop, and here is one of my favorites. This is from last night, when he realized that the "don't interrupt us during dinner" rule no longer applied and that he was going to be eating barbequed chicken out of our hands from now on. Score!
More updates on Baxter's condition as I get them, of course, and of course we appreciate any and all good thoughts/ prayers you might want to send his way. He is an awesome dog and has been the light of our lives since we rescued him after 9/11.
