Bad News



Mackie's Mom here- I took Cecil for his follow-up visit today and the news was not good. His inflammation is still there, but what is much worse is that the pressure in his eye has spiked to 55 (should be between 8-10 roughly) so he is having a glaucoma episode and the risk to his eye is severe. The eye vet is fearful that it may have already done irreputable damage to his retina and may take his vision if we are lucky enough that he doesn't loose his eye completely.

I feel completely devastated. Honestly I would rather he never had had his vision back at all than to loose it mere weeks after he regained it. To top it off the vet said he has to be in dire pain. It just kills me.

They have kept him overnight to do a few emergency procedures on him with hopes of getting it controlled. I hope to hear from the vet soon. Please pray for him. This completely breaks my heart.

We are so sad and so sorry to read this. Cecil has been in our thoughts and prayers every day, and continues to be so. We're so hoping that the glaucoma can be treated quickly and effectively and that there is no permanent damage to the retina. Now is when being optimistic can be helpful. We want so badly for Cecil to be comfortable, to see and to enjoy life. We know he knows he is loved and cared for. We hope that helps.

Thinking of him and praying for him now more than ever, with love,
Jake and Fergi
