Dear furriends ~ It's ME, MADI-HAWK! What, you don't recognize me wifout my cone? YUP, it's ME! I went back to MSU today fur a checkup. My eye is doing GREAT!

The ulcer is COMPLETELY healed (what ulcer you ask?? MOL)
The graft is fully attached and now has blood vessels running through it, which means that it is becoming PART of my eye, just as it should!

The doctor said........ Wow, that looks fantastic! And then he took pictures (because it is a teaching hospital) - and they had pictures from befur too.

Now I only have to get ONE drop evfurry EIGHT hours!!!!!!! I am thrilled about that! And, I get to keep my cone off, as long as I don't excessively rub at my eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The atopica has my diarrhea under FULL control amazingly! I am down to 2.5 mg of steroids every OTHER day (when I was getting 7.5 evfurry day) so Mom and the doctors are thrilled about that!

The one bad note is that my tremors are back, very badly - The steroids kept them under control, and now that I am on such a low dose, they are back........ Mommy can't tell if I am in pain when it happens, or not. Remember, 14 months ago, I had muscle and nerve biopsies, EMG, etc - to figure out *what the heck* was going on with my tremors - and these tests gave us no answer.

Well, I guess it is back to the drawing board fur Mommy and my staff, to see if there is something else that can help these tremors.

BUT, I am THRILLED that I get to keep my eye, THRILLED that it is healing, and THRILLED that I gotz my cone off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sending all of you big hugs, luvs and kitty kisses!
Madi-Hawk

Yaay Madi! You deserve some good news!! We are so glad to hear that the graft is working and we'll be purring that everything goes well. We're sorry about your tremors though. Why does it always seem that when you get one thing under control, something else always goes haywire??!? You have good pawrents and good doctors and hopefully they'll find a fix for you soon.

Hugs & Purrs,
Sally Maria, Trinity & Emily B
