A Rough Couple of Days
So, it turns out that I will be blind in my right eye, but my parents were actually relieved to hear that. See, I went to the optomitrist and she saw some serious injury in my good eye, but thought that it was pre-existing since a cataract had already formed off to the side (it probably should not be a problem). The concern was that such symptons can be emblematic of other serious health problems such as high blood pressure, hemophilia, or certain types of cancer. High blood pressure was ruled out and we were immediately sent off to get a battery of tests done the same day (Wed.). However, come Thursday the vet refused to give test results over the phone so Daddy had to rush to the vet (in a bit of a panic) to find out what was going on. Fortunately, the "no results over the phone" is a policy (in no way due to HIPPA) and it turns out that my results were normal. There is still a danger that I could go blind in my good eye since there is a lot of blood in it, but the dogtomitrist said that she would give a treatment of steroids (the good stuff) to try to clear out my eye. I am now on orders not to shake my head or play until the blood has been relieved from my eye and my retina is no longer under strain. My parents are extremely relieved that there was nothing more serious and, while they are concerned about my eye, they think that based on my adjusting to one eye that I would be just fine without any sight. After all, I'm a tough pug...and my parents promise to help me whenever I need it.
