What we don't know.
I got a call from Michael at 4:14 to come home and get Scrappers and get him to the vet.
His eye was coming out of his head.
I made it home in 20 minutes.
Normally it is closer to 28-30.
Was at a vet 3 minutes later.
He had left for town.
I followed him to the Emergency Room for pets.
The longer we had to wait the more it popped out of his head.
It was 6:40 pm before a vet showed up at the clinic.
He has had an emergency just as he was leaving his practice.
He has Scrappy in surgery about 30 minutes later.
We shall see if he has sight in his eye, if his eye will stay in the socket. If if if if if if...........
On the 27th.
Scrappy normally (though a tad skinnier here in '07).
Scrappy thursday nite
Scrappy on Friday morn
Scrappy on Saturday
Scrappy on Sunday.
As you can see the progression is improving daily. He still has great movement in his eye. The vet said that before surgery, his pupil was pinpont but after surgery it was larger. The swelling is just about gone. It was not as oozy this morning. So Maybe, all will be good.
(FYI-rewetting/lubricating drops for contact lens is great to keep the protracted eye moist. Which is EXTREMELY important. We went through a whole bottle in 3 hrs.)
We are thinking that something fell on him because he is real, and I mean REAL, skitish when things move unexpectantly. He about jumps out of his skin. Poor baby.
He has to stay this way til 3 pm on Monday, the 27th.
Needless to say, yesterday and today, he has begun to milk it.
Michael says Miss Scarlet has nothing on Mr Scrappers.
Except maybe that she can put the backof her hand on her forehead and say Ohhh Myyyyy.....
And another day goes by.........
Pure de ROTTEN.
