Cecil on Saturday...

Mackie's mom here again-- Mackie sure is being patient about me stealing his blog, but he understands. Here is the latest on Cecil as of Saturday morning.

I got the call from the vet this morning and it looks like the inflammation really subsided a lot last night. She said he still has a considerable amount, but less is better by far. She said he has still had several pressure spikes and that she went in at 11pm last night and drained more fluid from his eye and that he would need another TPA injection today to help with the inflammation. She is obviously really touched by this fella too since she just went in at 11-pm to check on him.

She said he is still visual (yippee) but that his vision has diminished since his lens surgery a month ago- but she called it "functional vision" I can certainly deal with functional vision!

So the goal is to keep after the inflammation and hope his pressure stabilizes more today. I agreed to allow her to keep him again tonight (which is about $250 per night) because he just isn't stable at this point. She said unless something happens today that I would get another report until tomorrow morning. All in all, I would consider that a good report!

Thanks to everyone for praying and for checking in on him! We are all really on edge around here and I think it's passed on to our boys because Finnegan is now sick...diarrhea and vomiting. Sigh..

Oh, and thank you so much to all of you for sending cards! I think that's going to be a nice surprise for Cecil's new Mom Cathy and Aunty Judy.

Even baby steps is good news. We hope his progress continues in that direction. Cecil is lucky to have the angels in his life that he does. It makes us feel lucky to sort of "know" so many angels.

Moma's making a card today.... and every minute that she works on it, she's thinking about Cecil. Pawsitive, hopeful, supportive, prayerful thoughts.

Hoping that today is a good one...
Jake, Fergi and our people
