Black Pearls of Wisdom...

she had an accident

after she got home and made her incision bled a bit. 12 hrs later, there is no oozing, no discharge, but the area above the staples looks red. Her poor Daddy is beside himself, blaming himself. It's hard to say if it looks better, worse or the same. Both her Daddy and I were shocked by how she looked when she came out of surgery and both of us avoided looking at her poor face. It was that, or break down and bawl like babies. She's not pawing at her eye, which all the literature says is a sign of infection/irritation, so maybe it ISN'T worse. Or are we seeing what we want to see again?

So glad the oozing & discharge aren't there..tears flowed when we saw her picture, but are hoping and praying this will solve any problems and no disease is found. Great that she's not pawing at it...that's good. She may paw at it when it starts to heal and is itchy, so maybe there's an ointment or something if that occurs.
So many have lit candles for her...we all love you and are praying so hard for precious Dixie and you both.

So glad to hear that Dixie came through the surgery so well. It must be so hard to see her this way, but in the end she will be pain free in that eye. At least she is leaving it alone and that is a good sign. Lots of healing energy being sent her way along with our prayers for a speedy recovery.

Lots of love & hugs,
KJ, Rain & Mom

what a brave girl you are Dix!
sending you loads of POTP to help you heal up!
your mom could ask Beanie's mom, she is an eye expert if she has any questions about your healing process. i think beanie's gang has 4? one eyed doggies now! his mom really does know it all when it comes to eyeballs!
everyone in their gang healed up really quickly! we hope you do too!

Just a thought.. and maybe ask the vet.. but this is what you would do with a human wound... with a clean new piece of soft towel try a cool(not icy) compress... brief and gentle.. it should reduce swelling and actually sooth. If Dixie isnt bothering with the wound.. its probable she is reasonably comfortable though. She WOULD be pawing at it or trying to if she was hurting... it will itch as a human wound does too as it heals.

Dont cry.. she NEEDS to see you smile for her..If she sees you cry..or be sad... and she will wonder what she is doing wrong... it you have to take it in turns to be in one smiley piece.. so be it.. but give her confidence.

This is a far better thing than leaving the eye to be terribly painful and worse... its why you did it for her.. Please.. we love you.. we love her...... please smile for her.

Know that we hold you close... Dixie is as beautiful as ever she was... NOTHING changes that... NOTHING.

Love and Hugsssss
