this is a sketch i made back in august after my dog had emergency surgery. it was very scary because we thought we were going to lose him, and i was a total wreck. shortly after this, we discovered a large mass on his leg that that was obviously rapidly growing that had to be removed 3 weeks later. luckily it was not cancerous, and he has made a full recovery from both incidents.
the paragraph in the sketch is transcribed below, and explains a little more:
"on 8-13-10 (friday) maurice had emergency surgery for bloat. luckily andy acted quickly + was on the way to the emergency vet as i came home from work. he got through surgery okay but vomited all day yesterday. today he started eating again so was allowed to come home. i am sitting in the bedroom with him so he will rest + digest + hopefully make a full recovery. he won't be in the clear until at least the end of the week, but i am thankful for more time with him."
