Sandy will be having a procedure done on Monday. He has corneal ulcer on his right eye, and though we have been treating it with medication for his eye, it isn't healing as well as the vet would like. Most likely because Sandy is an FIV cat, so his immune system is already compromised. The vet will be sedating him, and using an instrument to remove the dead cells, which will hopefully make it heal some. We have been treating his eye for a week and a half now. The vet says it has healed some from when I first took him in with it, but, we took him for a second checkup, and it hadn't healed anymore. I am worried that he may not do well under anesthesia. Perhaps I have nothing to worry about, but, I worry all the same, and as Monday gets closer, the more fearful I get. All I am asking is for those that read my post to keep my Sandy boy in their thoughts and prayers. Thank you all.

Hi Brenda:

My prayers are with your Sandy for a successful procedure.  I'm sure Harry is watching over also and sending lots of love to you and Sandy.

Please keep us posted -

They decided not to do the procedure today, and are going to put him on oral antibiotics, and a different eye drop. He will have to take the antibiotic for a month, according to the vet. I pray this will work for him, and nothing else will need to be done.

Thank you, Nancy. They made a serum from his plasma for us to put in his eye. His eye is starting to look better. I am sure he is getting tired of the cone and the medicine, and I will be glad when it is all better.

Hi Brenda,

Wow that is amazing,  I never heard of that and I'm so happy his eye is starting to look better. 

They really do have to come up with a better idea than those cones,  I never have any luck keeping the cones on any of my cats.  They all have figured out a way to get them off... lol.

I'm so happy Sandy is doing better.

Take care.

Nancy

On Thursday, Sandy managed to get his cone off while my sister and I were at the store. We were only gone an hour. His cone was in the hall, and the guaze to tie it on was in my daughter's room. He was so happy as he rolled around on the floor.

Hi Brenda:

I'm so glad to hear that Sandy is doing better.

It made me chuckle to hear about the "cone of shame."  I don't think there is a pet alive that tolerates that very well.

I hope that Sandy will continue to improve and I'm sure Harry is watching over all of you too.

Sandy is doing better, but, still have to do the medicine, and he has to wear the cone still. This week, he has managed to get it off 3 times. One time, he was sitting behind my sister on the chair, and worked it off. She felt the cone, and thought he was still behind her until she got up and saw him across the room, looking so pleased with himself.

Sandy's eye is better, so no more cone or eye medicine for him. We do have to give him some oral medicine now for a skin irritation, because he has a flea allergy. But, I am so thankful that his eye is better.
