Say Prayers for Wink~ Might get eye removed tomarrow

So, 2 months ago I rescued my baby beardie Wink from being put to sleep because he has an eye abscess. He had been doing wonderful untill about 2 days ago...
I noticed that he wasnt as enthusiastic about eating as he usually is, but we had been out of crickets and I thought he was just bored of what I was feeding him. Sometimes he just has "off" days where he doesnt eat as much, so I wasnt too worried.
Well, yesterday I noticed abscess had moved. Its always been in the front corner of his eye and took up about half the space in there, and you could see some of the normal eye in the back corner. Now its shifted, and its right in the middle, taking up the whole eye. Its coming out a little too, so he cant close that eye and its looking red and dried out And hes been even less eager to eat.
I called the vets yesterday, but they didnt have time to get back to me so I called again today... The vet sounded worried about him, and she said he is probably in alot of pain, wich is why hes losing his appetite. So at 4:00 PM tomarrow, he is going in. She will probably try to remove some of the abcess, and maybe his whole eye.
Im so worried about him! Hes my little scaley baby and I dont want to lose him! He always makes me laugh, and has the best little personality.
He just hit 9 inches, and I was feeling so proud of him for getting so big. I hope everything goes OK tomarrow
I have 4 tests at school, and a Behind-The-Wheel driving lesson at 5:00. What a stressful Friday its going to be...


Wish my little Camera-Hog luck <3

He is a cutie and I am sure he'll put through just fine especially withthe fact that he has been with you and able to gain strength for two months.

Update:
Ok, so his appetite has improved and he acually ate pretty good last night.
When I talked to the vet, I guess there was a misunderstanding because she was just going to decide if he needed surgery, but not do it that day. I thought that she said she was going to do it right away, but I guess not.
So now Im just really confused and disapointed. Everything is on hold right now, and Im just going to see how he does over the weekend on go from there. I was kinda looking forward to getting it all taken out so I could get this all over with!
Im also getting confused on the cost of all this... There are 2 vets that work there (They are husband/wife) and one told me that he would just do it for free, and I think the other vet was going to charge me something, but she didnt know how much it would be. They give me a 20% discount because I observe there, but sometimes a get free checkups and stuff too.
So now I dont know what this is going to cost either, or if its going to cost anything. Ill keep you all updated- I just need to figure this all out before I say anything more!


Oh, and Winkie says thanks for caring so much about him!

Hopefully they'll fix him up soon. And hopefully maybe they'll do it for free

Yeah, it would be great if it was free, so thats what Im hoping for. Winks doing alot better now than he was 2 or 3 days ago, so I think Ill wait a while for the surgery if I can. Its for sure going to be done when he is 6 months old, because they do better under anethetic when they are older/bigger.

He is 3 months now, so in Jan. or Feb. he will probably have surgery.
