Ody is Doing Fine

Just a quick update, it's late and I'm quite tired. Ody is doing alright, after the first two days he decided he wasn't about to take his oral medications and just let it drool every where.  So I've had to sneak it into his food and then sit and patiently* wait for him to eat it.  I thought I'd share a quick moment I caught on my Blackberry earlier this evening.

The girls love their Captain Ody....
*patiently means keeping the kittens away from his food laced with heavy pain medicine and antibiotics.  It was not very patient at all, it was more like begging Ody to eat his food quickly.

Ody in Recovery

I picked up Ody this morning and he is doing fine. He's rather grouchy which I can completely understand, poor guy. He is heavily medicated and pretty loopy, so I assume the pain is minimal for now. He seems restless but falls over when he walks or goes in weird little circles so I've isolated him on the bed next to me. He's definitely not happy about it but it's for his own good.

I shot a short video of him eating, if you're squeamish you may not want to look. He was starving, poor guy, so I let him have some kitten food. The kittens haven't seen much of him, so they are quite fascinated by him, he growls at them, don't blame the poor guy hehe. I want to thank those who have reached out to me and donated and/or left some kind words. I'm truly humbled and grateful, it renews my faith in humanity. Those of us with animals are such kind hearted people and I am so elated to know all of you. =)

Ody is in Emergency Surgery

As I mentioned yesterday, Ody has a very bad eye infection.  Apparently it was made worse when he scratched his own eye and it began bulging his eye in its socket.  I am a nervous wreck about him making it through  this surgery since he's 12 years old.

As I've mentioned before, I'm unemployed and I don't know how I'm going to pay for this surgery.  The vet's were nice enough to give me two weeks to come up with the money.  I am humbly asking for any of you that follow to contribute whatever you can to a fund for Ody's surgery.  I really hate asking because he's not one of the fosters but he became infected from one of them due to my negligence of keeping everything as sterile as possible.  I appreciate any thing you can give and any kind words.  Thank you and God Bless.
