MAX REFUSES TO HAVE SURGERY

Well perhaps Mr. Maxwell is trying to tell us something...once again his surgery is going to be postponed.

He spiked a high fever in the middle of the night and continues to have a fever today. Additionally, his respiratory rate, heart rate and blood pressure are higher than usual. He has received a lot of sedation and drugs to calm him down and bring down his temperature. Many tests, as usual, have been conducted and we will have some results in the morning. However, we cannot imagine the surgeons are going to feel comfortable taking Max in this state. So here we go again...

Hopefully nothing is seriously wrong and he will feel better soon. And hopefully we can finally have the surgery in a few days. Oh Mr. Maxwell...you keep everyone guessing, don't you!?!?

By the way, Max is now weighing in at just under 10 POUNDS!!! He is getting sooo big! At least, he is using this extra time to grow and get stronger.

Hopefully I will have promising news to report in the morning.
