    Hi everyone, just an update on Blossoms' surgery. We brought her home about a half an hour ago, she did very well during the surgery, the eye is repaired, but very swollen. The vet said the left eye was much more severe than the first eye, the cherry eye was bigger, so she said she would have a little more swelling in that eye , than she had in the left eye. But she said she's confident the outcome is going to be good. The left eye was done almost 2 months ago, and has healed well, we got a good result. Hoping for the same for the right eye. She is whining a lot, but vet says she's not in any pain, she had a shot before she left, and pain medication. She's just being sucky, and wants to cuddle with mommy. Going to give her extra TLC and love, and let her sleep with us tonight. She peed outside before we came in the house, but then she went over to her pillow and peed on it, she's had a lot of fluids in her IV, and she's on medication, so a little drowsy, so I figure that's why she had an accident. No big deal, pillows can be washed , poor baby.

    The first picture is of her eye this morning before surgery, the second and third picture is of her eye tonight after her surgery, cherry eye fixed, but eye is swollen, the vet says this could take a few weeks to go down. She has eye drops and cream. We have a follow up appointment on Monday to check her eye.

    Thanks everyone for your prayers and well wishes for Blossom today, you guys are Awesome.

    Thanks for the update. Glad she's home with you so she can be spoiled. Please give her a hug and kiss for us. Going to pray for a speedy recovery.

    Know it's been a stressful time and now I hope it's all about the healing from this point on. My boy bullie had this done and his sister had cherry eye surgery twice on the same eye because the first vet didn't do a good job. His sister has since passed but Wilson has not had his cherry eye come back since his surgery four years ago. I do have to put an ointment (Optimmune) frequently in that eye as he has had a couple of ulcers in that eye as well. Glad to hear you have an experienced vet so everything should be fine. I enjoyed your story of Dozer getting to enjoy his one on one time with you and how he got to enjoy all the toys. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you, and thanks for all the good thoughts and love sent our way. Im hoping it heals well, and her eyes don't give her too much troubles. I've noticed the other eye that was fixed 2 months ago, has healed nicely, but every once in a while it still gets goopy.
