Here are lots of photos of me, sweet lil' Max. Mommy says all of you have been thinking and praying about me lots and lots...thanks! I am doing just fine. I still have a long road ahead of me, but at least the heart surgery is out of the way. I must admit, that was kinda scary. To bring a smile to your face, we thought you would enjoy some adorable photos of me!

Mommy is giving me a pep talk before surgery!

A few hours before surgery...I'm movin' and groovin' and ready to roll!

How cute am I in my lil' hospital gown? I'm getting prepped for my big surgery!!!

Just a few hours after my heart surgery...yep, that's me underneath all the tubes and wires! Mom thought twice about posting this photo, but I think it shows how tough I am! It was quite a surgery, but don't worry...Mom says it was a big success!

Mommy was really, really, really excited to see me after surgery! :)

Two days after surgery and I am already feeling so much better...and looking good without all those tubes and wires! See my incision? Mommy says that will get me sooo much attention and respect at the swimming pool someday!

Hope you enjoyed my photos! Have a happy Thanksgiving! Love, MIGHTY MAX

Hey Amy! Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving celebration today. And thanks SO MUCH for posting these pics. Max amazes me more and more each and every day...I was stunned by all those wires and tubes, and then elated with how wonderful he looks after just two days of recovery! What a gift to celebrate a successful surgery for Maxwell on Thanksgiving. A truly special time.

Love you guys,
