Thanks for all the comments that you left yesterday! Rooney is scheduled to have entropion surgery next Thursday on both of his eyes. I wasn't surprised with the prognosis but I still feel bad for the little guy. I know that when it is all said and done he will feel so much better but the time period right after the surgery is going to be tough on him. The ophthalmologist told us that it would be a 13 day recovery and during that time period he would have to wear an e-collar. I know the "cone of shame" is going to go over REALLY well with him.
Luckily, the cost of the surgery isn't awful. It is higher than I had hoped for but I don't think I was being realistic or reasonable in my hopes. Needless to say, our wonderful escrow refund check that we just received will now be going towards his surgery.
Oh, and my big bad bulldog was the biggest baby yesterday!!!! Rooney and I went to the consultation while Hubs stayed at home with Buerly. The minute we walked into the lobby of the animal hospital Rooney started crying his eyes out and shaking like a leaf! Poor guy was terrified! So, now we know - Rooney is Mr. Billy Badass when his brother is around but when Buerly isn't with him he is a scaredy cat! lol
Have a wonderful day!
