A Golden's 'Tail'

I was very sick on Monday night... I was gagging and my stomach was hard so I had to go to the emergency room. My mom was afraid it was something called "Bloat" and she was right. My stomach was bloated and twisted so I had to get emergency surgery. It was very scary! Mom kept crying and I didn't understand why... I had to stay there all night and then in the morning mom came and picked me up and took me to my normal vet. I refused to go into the back with the nurse who I didn't know, so the other nurse who I know told mom to come back with me so I would not be scared. I had to stay there all day and then finally I got to go home last night. I felt very bad. My stomach hurt and I was so tired I slept the whole night. My mom kept lying her head on my chest because the vet told her that I could get heart problems and she needed to check my heart.
Today I went back to my vet. I kept telling mom we should go back home, I thought she was going to leave me there again so I whined and whined (which I usually NEVER do, it's too undignified.) Mom didn't leave me there that time. Instead she walked me to the back of the office and they attached some metal things to me to listen to my heart. It sounded good. Then they took some blood and I wagged my tail like I always do when I get treatments. After that I got to go back home to rest. My vet says I am recovering well, but I still need to be watched.
