It has been a challenging month. Stress is a hard and exhausting road to navigate and the limbo state of “wait and see” with Cooper’s eye treatments has been frustrating at best. But he is my trooper and hasn’t let cone life get him down. Yesterday, his vet, an eye specialist and I decided that the best course of action is to have his eye removed. He is permanently blind and at risk of a multitude of problems and taking out the eye takes away those risks and allows him the chance to recover and move on. Surgery is in 2 weeks and then he and I will hit the road. He says that being one eyed, he’ll only see half the country, but having only his good eye, it will be the better half! .-) (that’s a one-eyed smiley!)
My students are helping my make light of the situation and they are each designing him an eye patch because the fashion possibilities are endless! If you feel like getting crafty and sending one his way, he will be modeling all of them on his Instagram and Facebook pages. Our address until June 1 is in the contact section and will be updated after June 1.
At the specialist yesterday, I was marveling at the painting on the wall.
“Wow, that mural is stunning!”
Tech: “Actually, the reason that’s there is because the guy who was here before us had a bobcat and this was his room”
Tech: “Yup. a bobcat”
Cooper did his best bobcat impression. He is my fierce little fur ball and he will be a fierce one eyed furball!
