Its been a really busy week!
First things first. Dr Venter came to have a look at Georges eyes and was most happy with his progress. The inflammation doesn't seem to be too bad and drops seem to be working well. Today when I visited him his vision seems to have improved some more and his eyes are even clearer.
The nictitating membrane is hardly even showing which is a good sign there's no irritation. He also seems to be 100% more feisty than he's ever been. Oh boy! George is on fire!! It's really wonderful to see such an apparent improvement in his condition. His mind must boggle.
Naiobi was anaethetized by Dr Tordiffe that same day and several tests were done. She has good retinal function on both eyes and the ultrasound showed nothing untoward. She has massive resorption of the cataract in the one eye however the anterior and posterior lens capsule is so opaque that even if it was totally resorbed she would still not be able to see.
The good news is that she's a great candidate for surgery and now we just have to lock off a date when I will be around for the month post op. The reason is, like George, eye drops have to be administered several times a day and with my current schedule I won't be able to do this. The drops are really an important part of the healing process and therefore everyone agrees that waiting a month or so is for the better.
I posted a picture of Naiobi on Instagram having her retinal function done yesterday.
Hope I haven't missed anything. My brain is fried from trying to keep up. I also did a quick video of George for the LionwhispererTV channel telling people about his progress. I think a video goes out tomorrow on George and Yame whereby you'll be able to see how big they've grown and I talk briefly about his cataracts. Now they're gone!!!
Best wishes to you all
