Newsflash #26

All right, now we’re finally getting somewhere! Mr. Bowie underwent a minor surgery today to fix some small annoying problems and remove the stitches. The surgery went well and the good news is that his eye heals very well and I can stop giving him medication. He only needs some artificial tears treatment twice a day. The next medical check-up within three weeks. So glad I found Els, theย veterinary ophthalmology specialist, for helping resolve this issue.

Iโ€™m so sorry for all the distress, my dear Mr. Bowie. But youโ€™ll be free of all suffering and pain very soon now. I’m going to give you some excellent treats.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
