Its been a rollercoaster...Cecil's back to the emergency clinic

I just got home from an unexpected trip to Annapolis to take Cecil to the emergency clinic. I just knew his eye didn't look right when I got home. It looked blue and cloudy and when I left the clinic on Tuesday, the vet showed me his eye with a pen light and asked if I saw how clear it was---I did...she said if it changed to call her. Well, it was obvious that it had changed. I called her and she said to come right in...that she would be gone, but would leave instructions for the people at the emergency clinic (the referral center practices and emergency clinic share a facility)

When I got there they checked the pressure in his eye and it was back up to 46. Very bad. So, once again he's staying the night at the clinic and they will have him on an intervenous medication to help stabilize him until the eye doc gets in in the morning. The trip this evening cost over $400 and $160 of that was just to walk through the door essentially. The rest is just to keep him stabilzed, but tomorrow he will have to go through the same treatment he had on Monday and yet again, I'm waiting with baited breath to find out if he'll keep his eye. I know he'll be find if he isn't able to, but we need to get him to a point where he is stable regardless of whether its with the eye or without it.

It's been a rollercoaster of emotions (and of driving)! I just want the baby to get well and healed. I so want him to have this eye and his vision, but if it isn't to be, I can accept it (like I have a choice) at this point I just want him to be pain free and healed.


Thank you all for your continued support. Please pray for him like you have never before. I suspect we are at a critical moment for him.
