One of my babies is blind.
A year ago, we went to the vet because she had an abscess under her right eye.
We gave her the antibiotic & eye medicine that was prescribed.
She did finally heal. Short time after this happened,I saw that many times her eye would be a milky white. I thought this was maybe a problem w/her eyelid. Many times it would come & go.
A week ago, she got another abscess on her other eye. We gave her the meds, but this time it wasn't healing, so today I took her back to the vet. He sedated her so he could see things better, & she no longer has an eyeball, she is blind in that eye.
Now, also, her other eye turned out to be cataracts, not eyelid issues, & the vet said that she has probably been blind for quite some time in that eye.
Now she is 100% blind. No eyeball in one socket, & a forever milky cataract in the other.
I do plan on helping her the best I can, so she can still live a good life. She hasn't been in her wheel for some time now, I guess I can see why she didn't run in it anymore. For the most part, she is eating & drinking.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know what is going on in my part of the world.
I hope I will be able to be a good mommy, so she will be able to continue to have a good life.
I am totally crushed, I know I will never be able to get over this, but I will do the best I can.
