Cecil has had a setback

Cecil went for his 2 week follow-up today and it was a bit disappointing. He has "moderate" inflammation and has definately suffered a set-back in his recovery.
Last week the vet reduced several of his medications because he was doing so well, so she increased his prednisone back to 2x daily, increased some of his drops and changes one of them to a different prescription.

Mom said she lucked out, because this bottle (1.5ml) is normally $105 per bottle and they GAVE her two of them because someone had returned two unopened bottles and they had them on the shelf from last week and she was the lucky reciepient of two bottles!! (yippeee!)

They removed Cecil's stich in his eye and said that normally he would be able to go without the cone at this point, but the vet said to keep it on him and he has to have almost NO activity. She's precribed a sedative for him for morning and evening because Cecil has found his inner fox terrier this week and is a ball of energy!

Mom takes him back on Monday (it would have been two-weeks until the next follow-up without this set-back.)

Please keep Cecil in your prayers this week. We need his inflammation to go away so he can be released and go to his new home.

Thanks everyone!

Please let Cecil know we are sending friendly furry reminders to follow ALL the doctor's orders. It is his terrier tenacity that will help to get him through this... he just needs some gentle encouragement toward the right way to rest and heal. We're sending prayers, wirey best wishes and lots of love. He's on the right path, just taking some detours. Hopefully they'll be short and uncomplicated.

We love you, Cecil. We're here for you, buddy. Along with your very caring family - immediate and remote.
