Ruffy's mom here.
I am sure he will be posting tomorrow. He's just home now and not up to posting. He's too busy trying to escape the E Collar he has on that must be on for 2 weeks. He is not happy.
His procedure went well. He is on pain meds for the next 3 days. He also has to get ointment in his eye 4 times a day.
Dr. P put the e collar on him last night and said by the next day his eye was doing better. She thinks he's 'been at' his eye and this made matters worse. He has been running around, banging it into things to try and get it off. She said that she doesn't think a soft collar would be good, as he's a very strong and pulled off the one that Auntie Rachel tried on him.
Ruffy didn't eat too much, but then she said he might not. He is still medicated and under the anesthesia a bit so she said til it wears off he may not be too hungry...which for him is really unusual.
He's just laid down after trying to bang it off against something. We're hoping he'll rest. We have a small cage if we need to confine him, and are hoping we won't have to.
But he is home! Thank you all for your purrs, presents and wonderful kind thoughts.
Hugs to all of you from us,
