As you can tell, since my last entry almost 4 years ago I've had problems with my eyes. The one I wrote about last was my left eye, it was pretty sick for a while, then got better, then got worse (I found out I also have something called herpesvirus that likes to eat at cats' eyes, and I got a big fat ulcer that looked like a map of Asia, whatever that is). It got better again and I did great for almost 3 years! I didn't have to drive a looooong way to the eye vet place except 2 times a year. Then the first of April my OTHER eye got sick. It didn't hurt, it just was pink where it should be yellow. So, off to the eye vet, more meds which didn't work this time and helped me get another huge ulcer. Those things HURT! It got better, then worse, then all the way better. BUT, that wasn't the end of it. I got yet another huge ulcer two weeks after the first one went away, and this one is refusing to leave. The problem is they can't treat both of my eye problems together, because what makes one better makes the other one worse. Plus I have diabetes and that makes things harder. The eye vet said I'm a challenge. I don't think that's a good thing. I would like to NOT be a challenge, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. My poor mom is at her wit's end and her eyes leak a lot. Sigh. I wish I could get new eyes.
