Our One-eyed Girl

January 2011 006

With Sis’s permission, I’m sharing a couple of photos, taken last weekend.  The hair is growing back now, and the stitches are mostly dissolved/absorbed, so she really does appear just to be winking at us.

January 2011 017She’s doing fabulously, and we appreciate all the concern and support.  We have her post-op visit next week, and then we’ll officially be on the maintenance plan, with preserving the right eye as our primary goal.

Her spirit and good nature are an example to us all.  She did have a rough 30 hours or so, but from there, she improved rapidly.  We are truly blessed to have these amazing fur-girls in our lives!

    I’m sure this has been hard on you. It’s a constant reminder of how vigilant you must be to protect her other eye. They can sure teach us a lot about acceptance and getting the most out of life. We’re all proud of you, Sissy.

    I love that photo of her bounding up the steps. What a beautiful girl she is – so amazing, accepting and adventurous – we could all stand to learn a thing or two from her. ::muchlove:: g

    Three year olds are hard to keep down for long…and a hound diva, well, next thing you know she’ll be demanding blingged out eye patches! Glad you’re all nearly over the hump from this most unkind start to 2011.

    Oh hooray! She looks as beautiful as ever and it is nice to see her zooming around. Momma is almost crying a little reading this because it makes her think of her little Pi dog. You go Sissy!

    Good Lord, what on earth has been going on here?!! I know I havent been keeping up with the blogs like I should be, I didn’t know anything about this so will have to go back and catch up. Sorry!

  17. Tina S. Says:

    Wow, you all have been through it! I am glad Sissy is doing well and that Gretchen is being such a good helper. I really hope that Sissy doesn’t have to have surgery on the other eye and will be praying towards that end.
