CATaracts Part II~Update

CATaract Update~Yesterday was a sleepy one for mom and me. They loaded her up with stuff that made her just want to sleep. During the operation two times they gave her more meds as she was feeling too much of the operation. She didn't like that at all. Today, the day after, she went in for her check up and she is doing great. Her vision is both eyes is 20-20. Wow, now she will really be able to keep an eye on me. Thanks all for your purrs and good thoughts.

I'm sitting here by the door because I want to be sure I don't miss the mom when she comes home from her CATaract surgery today. This morning they are doing her second eye and I know that when she gets home she will want to snuggle down and take a long nap and I plan on joining her.

She had a check up on her right eye the other day and the doctor is so pleased that all is well. Now the purrs are again needed as they are working on the left eye today. Thanks so much for all of your kind words and purrs. This means a lot to me and the mom.

I will post updates as to how the mom is doing.

We are sending healing purrs and are so glad all has gone well.
our daddy is at the hospital today for a last ditch attempt to see if the pressure in his eyes has lowered with the latest medication he was prescribed. if not he must have urgent surgery, or he will lose his eyesight within 2 years. we are all very worried.

Gracie ~ we're sure your Mom will do just fine! Ours had that done a few months ago and all's well. Just remind her to use her eye drops, eye drops, eye drops! Don't let her fur-get!
Take care...

I wish I was there, as it looks much more fun than here. I don't think I would like to have a swim though.

Just heard about your Momma's cataract surgeries!

Daddy had one of those on his left eye several years ago.

Great reports, and we know you will take good care of her.

Wishing her a speedy recovery!
