Cecil Update

Isn't that picture neat? Its of Cecil's eye upclose...that's right, the eye he can see out of now! See the stitch in the corner of it? The vet says that will most likely come out next week? Cecil had his first follow up appointment with his eye surgeon today. It went beautifully! She said he is healing really well and that everything looks great in his eye. His pressure in both eyes is still a bit on the low side, but she said it was okay considering he's only a week out of surgery.

I can tell you that in the past two days Cecil has really come to it--his vision has really improved this week and he can see everything. The doctor siad it will refine itself over the next week too. Just Sunday, I had him outside on the leash and a bicyclist went by and he carefully and quietly studied them riding all the way down the street and when they turned the corner, he looked up at me as if to say "Wow!, Cool! What in the world was that?"

It's so amazing to watch him regain his confidence..for instance, when I put the food bowl down he just runs right up to it, whereas before he almost had to search for it. He's really enjoying things now--but he really wishes we would take that silly cone off his head!

Ohhh we are all a little leaky!!!Has Cecil not been able to see his whole life?? We can not even imagine what this must be like for him. Archie wants to paint him a picture with LOTS of color in it...the only small problem is that he does not know how to paint..this should be good.. Love A+A

Oh Mackie...we are so gladdest about sweet Cecil...what a gift to give this dear boy...he has so much to look forward to!!!!

We stared at that pic of him for the longest time...I actually thought you had photoshopped him into a sheep till um well I realized he had one of those lampshades thingies on!!!!! Bet he has to be careful with his eye for a while...it's not like he can sport a pair of Oakleys....

Love you guys!!
