Baxter Woo-Woo Update

Thank you so much for everyone's kind words, thoughts and prayers!

Baxter's surgery on Monday was a success. He had two grafts placed in his eye (one sterilized pig bladder, the other his own conjunctiva) and is healing wonderfully. He's still stuck in his satellite dish for a few more weeks but hanging in there.

Other than being upset at the satellite dish collar and loathing his eye drops, he is enjoying the one-on-one Baxter-Mommy & Daddy time and sleeping on the bed.

His first follow-up appointment was today and his vet says everything looks beautiful and in six weeks we'll trim down the graft and begin the process of healing permanently.

Again, thank you everyone who has sent your comments!
