    Sydney's eyes.. MUCH better!!!!!

    Last month I posted here (http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthre...s-eye-troubles) about my cat Sydney having blood in his eye and we went to see a veterinary ophthalmologist 60 miles away. Since then I've been giving Sydney the prescribed medications.

    Today we went back for a follow-up checkup.. and guess what, Sydney's eyes are MUCH BETTER now than they were!!!!! --

    Both retinas have re-attached, and the blood in the left eye has turned into a clot, which the doctor said should just dissolve or disintegrate away soon!!!!!

    I'm to keep giving him the Prednisilone (for inflammation) in that eye, twice a day now instead of four times, until the clot breaks up, and then we can stop that.

    And he will be taking the Amlodipine for the rest of his life, to keep his blood pressure under better control.

    As long as there are no changes in vision, the appearance of the eyes, or the level of comfort, he doesn't need to come back again for another year.

    I'm SO GLAD this has turned out so well!

    Death thought about it.

    I really had no idea things were going to be so much improved!

    I bet I'll start noticing all kinds of changes now!

    Thank you to all of you who sent Sydney and me so many good wishes and prayers and energies. I'm sure they all helped Sydney and me.

    Pet Talk prayers and thoughts are powerful! Believe it!!!!!

    Sydney purrs thank you for all the kissies and cuddles and lovies. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Thank you, Kay. Yes, I am thrilled and delighted! (and I know Sydney is too.) I had kind of thought these eye problems were just going to be there from now on, and it is wonderful to know that they have been treated successfully and so well.
