This photo gives you some notion of the pain that R's left eye must have caused him after glaucoma irreparably damaged it.
He was home by last evening, and he seemed much better than we expected. He seems pretty comfortable and energetic.
Lots of poeple who have gone through this glaucoma with their dogs have told me that their dogs seem much happier after the surgery. I have the feeling that R will be one of those. So, he should be clowning around for the camera again soon.
Thanks so much for all of your kind messages yesterday. You helped make the day easier.
