Happy Birthday Bhikku!

Today is Bhikku's 8th Birthday! And it's also exactly two weeks since the gall bladder surgery that saved his life. (For background, see here and here.) He's doing very well in recovery, and has gone off his pain meds and is down to just one antibiotic. He gets his staples out tomorrow and he'll have a blood test and liver panel that I'm confident will show another drop in his bilirubin levels (his eyes get less yellow each day). Yesterday, after he'd been off the Tramadol for a day, he insisted on going for a walk, so we did. That's a really good sign, I think. (The picture is an old one . . . from his 5th birthday, I think.)

What a sweet old fellow he seems to be. Glad he's feeling better.
