Remarkably Brave Bronte

One week ago, Bronte had his left eye removed at a hospital in Woburn, Massachusetts. It had a melanoma that caused glaucoma and blindness.

The eye was examined at the University of Wisconsin this week and the tumors were not malignant.

After the surgery, the ophthalmologist wrote in a report, "Bronte has been remarkably brave!!!"

Bronte is still wearing an Elizabethan collar, or plastic cone. It can be removed on Monday.

His right eye is being watched for signs of glaucoma. He is currently getting three different kinds of drops inserted into his right eye each day to prevent the same fate as the left eye. Bronte does not like having drops put into his eye.
