Default Umbilical hernia repair surgery

Well... That was hard. I just dropped Yogi off this morning at 8am to get his hernia repair surgery. I've only had him since October but the little guy really makes the house a home. It's so quiet without him here. I opted for the post op pain injection and take home pain meds so I can keep him comfortable but it occurs to me that I don't know how to tell if he's in pain... Any suggestions on that? Also, how to keep a seven month old GSD quiet on crate rest with a cone on? He's got the biggest crate but I can't see how he's going to fit in it with a cone on... Or should I try letting him sleep in my bed tonight? Any post op suggestions for me?

Thanks everyone.
