EYELID REPAIR ON HOMERS 1ST BIRTHDAY

HI Everyone, Homers Mom here!

Homer had surgery today to correct a problem with his left eyelid.  He did great.  He is now recovering and will be back to update you all as soon as he's able.  In the meantime, here are a few pictures of my little man before, during and after surgery.

Lots of love,

The mama

This afternoon before surgery
 Homer with one of my awesome co-workers!
 A new toy that another co-worker made for Homer for his birthday!  A cute octopuss filled with catnip!  He's gonna love it.
 Checkin' out the drug cart!
 Snuggling with his surgery tech!
 Before surgery
 With his surgeon and team of awesome techs.
 Let the fun begin
 Right out of recovery.
Homer has eaten a little bit of wet food and right now he is "stumbling" around the house.  He's still pretty drunk and wobbly, but is enjoying checking everything out.

Thanks for all your well wishes!!

Hurray for successful surgery for our sweet friend.

One time when my human brother was quite small, his birthday fell on a day when the family was to spend most of the day traveling by car on a summer trip. So since he was too young to really get calendars and such, they simply announced that it was his birthday, and celebrated, a few days later when he was back home and could have a fun day. Maybe Homer's "birthday" can be next weekend.

We are relieved that dear sweet little Homer is OK after his surgery. We worried abowt him.
We hope he is being spoiled rotten today to make up for missing his birthday.
We love yoo Homer. Smoochies and get well purrs.

Oh, Homer, you are a doll! We are glad the surgery went ok--it looks painful. We hope your mom continues to spoil you rotten while you recover.
