Fingers crossed it all goes well for Tilly tomorrow. Here's hoping she recovers well and has a few years ahead of her yet

We will shortly be heading to vets, where Tilly will be having enucleation surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts. It’s going to be a very long day. I’m going to try and stay busy but I’ll be doing a lot of pacing, I’m sure!

Only just caught up with this thread. Can't believe I missed it! Good luck to Tilly and healing vibes and wheaks being sent from my herds.

Well what can I say? Dreams do come true! Never in a million years did I expect a result like this. Tilly has been unable to eat anything, other than mush, for a very long time. Despite having regular treatment from another vet, she never made any progress. She came to TEAS at the end of April and after Simon filed her teeth she could manage a little grass, but she was still completely reliant on mushed food. She has since been having two weekly dentals, but there has been no further improvement. When I saw what had happened to her eye, my heart sank, but she seemed brighter in herself. She must've been experiencing extreme pressure and pain, and with the abscess bursting out through her eye, that pressure would've reduced. Now the eye has been removed and all the pus has been flushed out, she is clearly feeling very much better. Her jaw was barely moving, prior to the enucleation surgery, but as soon as the eye was removed and the socket flushed, the jaw was able to move more normally. Tilly may have lost an eye, but she has gained so much more! It's early days, but I am feeling so much more hopeful and I am so glad that I let my heart rule my head, as I did wonder if I was going to cause more suffering by going ahead with the surgery and maybe we should have let her go.
