Cecil is HOME!

Mackie's mom here just giving a report on Cecil. It's been a long day. Went to the eye clinic this afternoon to get Cecil and they were having emergency after emergency. (Apparently 2 emergency surgeries) so the vet wasn't ready for me, so I sat, and sat, and sat. Finally after quite some time she buzzed in to say that Cecil was doing well and that his swelling really reduced overnight and he looked great. SHe went through the procedure with me and the aftercare including all the medications..WOW does he have a lot of medications...4 different drops, some for the left eye, some for hte right and one for both--some of these are 2x a day, and some are 4x a day...he has 5 differnt oral meds and again, one is once a day, and the others are mostly 2x a day...it's going to be hard to keep track of it all! I've written out a cheat sheet!
Anyway, they brought Cecil out to meet me and guess what? HE CAN SEE!!
Isn't that amazing? You should have seen his face when I spoke to him---it was like "Oh, that's what you look like?"
It is SO cool. He is very happy, but totally beat...just look at the pics of him on the long drive home (its 100 miles round trip)






and just look at him since we've brought him home---






I guess that poor baby is tired!!

Thank you all for your support and prayers! He's doing really well!

Hugs!

YOU are angels for him. Thank you so much for giving this sweet fella a new lease on life. We are so happy for him

What a miracle! We're so glad that Cecil can see again. When does the no-no collar come off? Can't wait to see him running and playing again when he's better rested.

Happy Tails,
