P.J.’s Recovery Part 3

Well here it is, the big reveal! The latest 2 pics I took to document her journey to recovery!

Day 25 – We took her for a hair cut. This way we could truly get the full effect of how she will look. This is how wonderfully her eye healed.
Day 30 – What a trouper! Back in action and better then ever! I know when she loses her other eye, its not going to stop her or slow her down.

Day 25

There you have it! My quick documentation of P.J.’s amazing recovery.

If you guys have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to message me.

I can’t explain enough how happy I am with how things went. Its truly hard to believe that it was only 3 months today since she was diagnosed and 35 days since her surgery!

Wishing everyone and their amazing dogs all the luck in the world. They will show you how strong they are, and in turn how strong you are!

Thanks for reading 🙂
Deena & P.J.

Day 30

  1. Oh thank u so much for sharing ! We are looking to have to have Louie’s left eye removed and its a scary thought. I really appreciate u documenting this, it’s helping me feel much more at ease. Louie already totally blind and has been for about 3 years, no big deal. It’s the surgery part that was scary to me. Thank you thank you thank you !!!

  2. Trust me Lanni, if he’s already blind he will heal quick and surprise you I bet! And this way you won’t have to worry about him scratching his eye or anything. I am so glad if I helped you, that’s exactly what P.J. And I were hoping to accomplish! 😉

  3. It was definitely a HUGE help to me. I showed the pictures to my Husband and Son. They have helped prepare us. I am like Lanni. The surgery part scares me to death. Thanks again for sharing the pictures.

  4. Hello PJ’s mom

    My name is charlie and my 6 year old cocker spaniel Macy is going to have to have surgery on her left eye due to glaucoma in the next month or so. Macy looks almost exactly like PJ. I have found your posts to be very helpful and comforting. I was hoping you could answer a couple of questions for me. Had you ever considered the prosthesis? I am really struggling with the decision between removal and the prosthesis. Also, when u removed her eye did you have the orbital implant placed in to hold the eyes shape? I would really appreciate your feedback. I was also wondering how the second eye is given that it has been almost two years. Macy will likely lose her second eye at some point too.
    Thank you for your time

  5. Hey Charlie,

    Sorry to hear about Macy! Trust me when I say it’s harder on you than them. PJ lost her second eye earlier this year and I often forget she’s blind. She still trots around the house, plays ball, play fights with her brother Rev and all the things she used to do. Her second eye went 18 months after the first.
    I did consider a prosthesis, but my vet said it was unnecessary and there is maintenance required with them as I’m sure your vet discussed. I wanted to make things as easy on her as possible, so I didn’t get the orbital implant either.
    I’ll post a picture of PJ that I’ve taken in the last couple weeks to show you what she looks like now. There is a little indent in both eyes, but she’s still the cutest little things. 🙂
    If you have anymore questions let me know.
    What I did start doing with PJ right after her first eye went was using commands like up, down, stop, turn, etc and she’s a champ at those now.
    Thanks, it’ll all be good!
    Deena & PJ
