Rocky V. Update

Hi friends, I have an update from Rocky V.'s foster mama. I know that many of you reached into your hearts (and wallets) to help this poor boy when he recently underwent surgery to remove his eye. It was extra tough for him, because the eye he was left with had some issues of its own.

Well, he's on the mend. Here's a note from his foster family:

"We want to thank everyone for their support of our little fighter, Rocky. As you can see from the photo, he is no longer wearing the cone. The infection that caused his right eye removal was stopped from doing any further damage and he is trying to adjust to having just the one eye that is severely limited due to a graft and cataracts. Rocky has learned to use his nose and ears much more and, luckily, he is maneuvering our home without many incidents.

The doctors feel that his remaining right eye is in danger of glaucoma which is a very painful disease. We are providing him with constant care to prevent this. He sits for his eye drops and kisses us after we give them to him. He seems to know that we are doing all we can to help him. 

Rocky does anything to please us and just doesn’t want to be alone in the dark. His foster home thanks you for your continued support to help us keep this little sweetheart from any further pain."
