Tuesday Grandpapa Update


This is a picture of my grandpapa taken last Christmas. He looks a bit silly, doesn't he?
I wanted to thank all of you kitties so VERY VERY much for purring for Grandpapa. His surgery on Friday went extremely well. The doctor was able to fix all 7 tears and attach the retina back. Grandpapa was on his way home by lunchtime on Friday, all grumpy because he wasn't comfy and he had lots of bandages over his eye. The doctor had to use a gas bubble in Grandpapa's eye to help fix it, so we won't know about his vision until after the gas goes away, which may take several weeks. Everything seems hopeful, though. He says he can kind of see things right now, so hopefully (paws crossed) all will be well!
Of course, Grandpapa is still stubborn. He isn't doing exactly what the doctor told him to. He's supposed to stay still and keep his head down so that the gas bubble stays where it is supposed to . . . otherwise he is in danger of giving himself a CATaract. Grandpapa isn't staying still and isn't keeping his head down as much as he should. BAD grandpapa!!! BAD! If one of us furries misbehaved like that, mommy would have us GROUNDED! I think Grandmama should ground Grandpapa. I don't want my grandpapa to have anything wrong with him ever again. Maybe if Grandmama takes away his temptations and toys he'll behave better.
Grandpapa loves all of us furry babies very much and spoils us, and we love him back . . . especially Dana and Holly! I am very glad that he is doing well, and I know it is all thanks to all of those purrs from you wonderful kitties. Thanks so much for being such great friends! Purrs to all of you!

Great that the surgery went well ~ now it would be best if Grandpa did what doctor advised but humans seldom are as disciplined as kitties...now are they...?
