    He should be fine, we had a rescue that needed that surgery and everything went well. Good luck and keep up posted.

Now, Samson ALSO had it done and no problems with dry eye but he did not have a cherry eye so I don;t know if that made a difference or not.

    I'll cross my fingers for the best outcome! Poor little guy...it has to be irritating as hell.
    Thanks for you info Alix… Winston had not had cherry eye yet, but our vet wanted to wait till he got a little older. I'm going to see what the specialist has to say regarding that...

Also, as their heads grow in the 2nd and 3rd year and their wrinkles continue to change, it is not uncommon for it to show up even at the age of three, or if they do have it, it can go away on it's own as the skull changes.

    I would personally evaluate the severity of his case over a month or two with using lubricating eye drops and look at his eyes daily. For anesthesia, on an eye surgery, typical protocol would be propofol and isoflourane.

    Here is an example of the inner eyelid lining showing very nicely. I remember I use to line that part of my eye with eyeliner back in the 80's and 90's LOL

    THANKS so much Lisa!!! Your picture here is super helpful, I'm hoping they will let us give it some time, but I don't want Winston to suffer...

    P.S. I used to put eyeliner there too, dark black & some girls used to hit a match w/it first!!! Give it that Pat Benatar look… LOL

    "Love Is A Battlefield" loved her videos and she still rocks!

    So does Joan Jett, she's a tiny thing in person, Stuart took me to see
    her do a small, intimate concert on her 60th birthday, 2 years ago.

    She absolutely killed it.

    Wishing Winston a great eye evaluation tomorrow and that the dr. will be able to ease your anxieties about the future surgery too. We're all here for you and will be sending out lots of positive vibes!

    She looks great, much younger than her age especially given her lifestyle.
    When you see how tiny she is it's easy to see why she had back problems
    (from weight of guitars) and became addicted to pain pills. She changes
    guitars frequently in her shows and some are larger than she is.
