Default Max shows off his new prosthetic eye.

As you watch this, keep in mind that the eye you see is prosthetic. That's Max's cornea with an implant where the diseased eyeball used to be. It's pretty incredible.

Max's recent eye exam went very well and his one prosthetic eye looks fantastic and the eye that was removed has healed perfectly. He is on prescription ointment once per day and Dr. Fahrer expects that soon he will need no meds. She wants to check him in one month.

Though it was a shame that Max got such a serious infection in his right cornea he is lucky that his left cornea and prosthetic eye was spared. The main thing is that Max is very happy and healthy and no longer in pain from rotten teeth, hernia and migraines from glaucoma; he's all fixed - and some parts he didn't want fixed. Max has gained much needed weight. His confidence grows and today he climbed down some stairs in my yard for the first time.

Now the process begins of searching for the right home for Max and then he gets to break my heart. Thank you for all you have done to put Max's life back on track.

Awww...I was just thinking about Max the other day and wondering how he was doing. I love him (is it possible to love someone you've never met)? Thank you so much for helping him. I hope he finds a wonderful home. I wish it could be mine. I feel for you having to give him up.

I am so happy for little Max! What a little spit fire he is, so full of spunk. I think I am in love. Way to go Bron, thanks for all that you do.
