I was doing quite well until this afternoon when mom looked at me and blood was pooling in the bottom of my left eye. We called the vet right away, and they couldn't see me for two hours, and said it should be okay to wait unless it looked worse.
The vet says I have a growth on my iris and the blood was in the anterior chamber. She put lots of drops in it so I couldn't feel it. My eye pressure was checked and is okay. I'm squinting a lot, it feels funny and my vision is cloudy.
I'm going to a specialist early in the morning. I'm real scared, but know my mommy will do what she thinks is best for me.
Please purr for me!

We are purring and praying for you, hope your eye will be OK...hang in there! Sending lots of hugs
Oh Dexter! You have our purrs and hugs sweetheart. Please tell your mommy to keep us posted!
Thanks Xena, Alex, and Jezebel for the purrs, hugs, and prayers. Looks like I'm gonna need lots of them.
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure today and am in stage 3 renal disease. I have a tumor in my iris that is possibly melanoma. My blood and urine also show that I have an infection. I also had a nose bleed last night, which could mean a tumor in my nasal passage.
Aside from all that, I did well today. We took lots of breaks for petting and I even got a snack. The vet says no running, jumping, or rough housing, as it may cause my eye to bleed more.
Me and mom are very tired and glad we're still together. Give your kitties a hug today!
Oh Dexter!!! None of this is good news sweetie. Ugh, I'm so sorry all of this is happening. Your poor little body. Please give your mommy a hug for me as I'm sure she needs it. I'm going to come and hold your paw for awhile and give you some angel kisses.
Oh no Dexxy, none of this is good news. Please take care of yourself and get lots of rest and sleep. We're purring up a storm that your blood pressure goes down and you are okay.

I'm getting my green thong out of the drawer Tate - those girls will be drooling next time, they had trouble keeping their hands off me as it was!
I'm doing great today, it's like any other day! I'm getting eye drops 3 times a day and my eye looks stable for now. Mom is impressed with how well I am doing.
