My new BFF, Animal 911

Clearly, the holiday weekend was progressing too smoothly..........

Gen & the Foo had a little tussle over breakfast this morning, resulting in a really gross, bulgy look eye for the Foo.    Eeeewww.  Oh, wait, GROSS - this is serious!

Oh, you were thinking we'd put up photo of that grossness?
Come on, we've got some dignity.  
Well, maybe not. 
But I was not able to get a photo while racing down the block, blinkers on, nearly running red lights to get to the ER vet.

Fortunately, we were able to get Foo over there within 10 minutes. The vet wasn't able to reposition her eye (right, in case anyone cares) on the first try, so she will need to be sedated.   Hopefully, the eye will heal and no further treatment will be needed.

I saw Foo just before her surgery, and she was pretty, well, drunk.   But I told her she was really brave.  And seriously, eye patches are really a fashion problem.  

Please send eye healing thoughts!  
(Chocolate works too)

iUpdate:   Foo made it through surgery, but the vet was not able to get her eye in the completely correct position (due to swelling).   She had to suture the lids closed to help it heal.   We'll need to watch her carefully, and with medication and drops, hope for the best.

OMD! What were you guys thinking? Your mom is probably going crazy with worry for poor little Foo right now.

We are sending healing vibes and positive thoughts. We could send some Popeyes too since there's some left over from yesterday. Or would you prefer chocolate?
