That is great news that Franklin is doing so well after the surgery - luckily you picked up on the corneal ulcer and were able to get it sorted quickly. Just so pleased for you that it is such a success!! Way to go Franklin! CJ has an elephant that he shakes and throws around the place - poor Franklin not being able to play with his new toy

He said that the risks are now normal. I said woo hoo! and asked if that meant Franklin is allowed to kill his toys again now (I found out after his birthday elephant that he shouldn't shake his head ) and the eye vet watched the elephant clip and said noooo, not for at least another few weeks, preferably never, but definitely not in the near future. Oops. And eek!
Hahaha...poor Franklin

Great news that he is doing well. I know what you mean about the red eyes - my vet had also prepared me for that but it was still hard to look at without cringing. They look kinda scary after the surgery but once Maggie could open her eyes, she actually saw me for the first time all over again and was wagging her tail and wiggling all over. It made me cry because I was so overjoyed. I know she is tough enough to have handled being blind. I am just glad she didn't have to do it.

Hi Anne Marie and everyone,

Thanks for thinking about us, didn't realise I'd been away so long Franklin is doing great His eye doc is very happy with his progress, and has also now given permission for killing toys so Franklin is thrilled with that!

He's still got tiny little scars on his eyes where the incisions were done, but the doc said that's totally normal for this length of time after the surgery, and they'll continue to heal over the next couple of years. Diabetes is going well, and I'm planning on doing a curve in the next couple of days. Shh!

I notice CJ has a new picture as your avatar, he looks so cute!

Again, thank you.
