"I don't want to die without any scars." - Tyler Durden, Fight Club

So there he is this morning... So here's the deal. For the next 10 days he's gotta wear that lamp shade and taking more meds than a 99 yr old woman. For the next 7 days hes on a special diet of canned dog food that cost $44 for 12 cans. The biggest struggle is that he can't run, jump, rough house, or be outside longer than the time it takes to go #1 and 2. But he's home... I knew I was attached to the little punk but I didn't realize until I picked him up yesterday. And it didnt hit me how serious the whole ordeal was unitl I saw this...


If I came home with a wound like that there's no way I'd be out of bed... Deb asked me yesterday morning what I thought it'd be like... I was all like 'oh it won't be bad just an inch or two.' I was totally unprepared for what I saw. He had a pretty major operation. The funny thing is that most of you know Leo and Deb have struggled to find the groove in their relationship mainly to do with the fact that Leo seems to find her stuff more attractive than mine. But last night everytime he made any kind of noise she came running to make sure he was ok... its going to be a long 10 days for her...

the weird/cool thing is they gave me the needle back...

Oh well, its been a weird wild week.

Here's the thing, what did you do with the needle? Are you gonna have it bronzed for him cause you can't use it ever again? Dude, do you realize the number of germs on that thing? Please dispose of it(the needle not precious Leo) before I visit in 50+ days.
