Cookie’s eye is worse. Dr. Mangan will be checking it tomorrow when he comes to hopefully, remove the lavage from Magic’s eye.

Almost three years ago, Dr. Mangan performed surgery on Cookie at UF when she had cancer.  He did a great job.  He had to remove much of her lower left lid in order to save the eye and did some pretty amazing reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Mangan examined Cookie’s eye over the weekend.  She has an ulcer but she’s really good about having it treated – no lavage needed.  She’s always been a very good girl.  We were concerned that the cancer had returned, but it appears that is not the issue – thankfully.

Dr. Specht was back out yesterday to do a biopsy on Cookie’s eye.  There is an ulcer but it appears that something else is going on.  Please keep Cookie in your prayers.

It’s been overwhelmingly busy here but we want to share the good news – Cookie’s biopsy results came back – it’s not cancer!

Cookie needs help with her vet bills. Her eye is still being treated. The healing is slow but at least her eye is no worse and we are very relieved that it’s not SCC!

Please continue to keep Cookie in your prayers.  I’m sad to report that her eye appears worse.  Dr. Mangan came out and did another biopsy that is going to be sent to a different lab. We’re still concerned that the cancer has returned.
