Mom had to take me to the stabby place again today. On top of losing a lot of weight, I now have an issue with my eye. Last week the third eyelid started protruding in my right eye. It looked fine (white and normal size) but was believed to be from dehydration. I hadn't been eating for a few days and wasn't drinking much. The vet had mom start me on sub q fluids at home. Unfortunately the eye has been bothering me a lot, is red and swollen so much that mom felt I had to go get checked out again today. Vet did some tests and it appears that I have a scratch on my cornea. Vet thinks my eye got really dry because of my dehydration and I may have accidentally scratched it when I pawed at it. It hurts me quite a bit. I have been started on a steroid drop that mom has to put in my eye every 2 hours. I will return to the stabby place on Wednesday for followup exam.
The good news is that I am eating again. Mom says she is very happy that I am eating again but I am a very sick boy and have a long road ahead of me. Thank you for all the healing purrs, positive thoughts and prayers! Please continue to think positive thoughts for me!
