Sun 2/17/08 - Max off to hospital

Max and Andy are off to the hosptital this afternoon. Max had what appeared to be blood in his urine this morning and definitely this afternoon. The on-call doc said to bring him in for blood and urine analysis to see if his platelets are low and if he may have a urinary tract infection. Low platelets cause bleeding and easy bruising. (Platelets are in the blood to make it coagulate when you get a cut. If they're too low you just bleed.)

I'm guessing they'll be there for several hours waiting for results and even longer if he needs a platelet transfusion. We'll let ya know...
