An Eye-Opening Experience for Francesca!
Posted by Francesca
Well, it’s been quite a long ordeal, but I finally had that blasted button removed and my eye is now wide open and all healed. I was taken to the veterinarian last Friday, but a small and unexpected problem was encountered. I just hope I never get another corneal ulcer!
1 Is it my turn yet? This is one time I can't wait to be seen by the vet! I'm finally going to get this button removed from my eye! Come on, Sharkey! They just called my name!
2 Hi, Dr. Jean! I swear I've been really careful with my eye! I've been taking my drops and wearing my cone because I really want this button removed!
3 I'm going to stay really still while you cut the sutures and remove the button. I'm so nervous! I hope my eye is okay under there!
4 How does it look, Doc? I still can't see!
5 So after you wipe my eye, we're done, right?
6 Dr. Jean! My third eyelid doesn't seem to be coming down! I know it was sewn shut for protection, but it's supposed to come down, right? I can't be looking very pretty.
7 Oh, I remember these drops. They're numbing drops so Dr. Jean can touch my eye without me feeling it.
8 I'm trying to be patient and not squirm, but it's hard! Dr. Jean is using a cotton swab to try to coax my third eyelid down.
9 Francesca! I'm getting worried! What happens if your third eyelid won't open on its own anymore?
10 Dr. Jean says they have to make a tiny incision to separate the third eyelid. It was inflamed and sewn shut for so long, it started to heal that way! Don't worry, Sharkey, I'm in good hands!
11 Dr. Jean, you're going to take good care of my Franny, right? Please make sure her eye works okay.
12 Oh Dr. Jean, you have the greatest bedside manners!
13 I'll stay in the waiting room and read this new issue of Modern Dog magazine until she's done. G.K. looks great on the cover with Martha and I'm featured inside!
14 Look Sharkey! I'm good as new! I'm back to my two-eyed self again! Thank you Dr. Jean! You saved my eye! Oh, the world looks so beautiful!
