Eyes Wide Open

Thanks to all for the good wishes and support.  Sis responded immediately to the drops, and her left eye is again open and has some vision.  We’ll go back to the vet next week for a more thorough evaluation. 

May 2010 008

Taken 12-17, ten days before the diagnosis, a week before she temporarily lost vision

Her left eye is sometimes cloudier than others, but it’s still so early, and the Uveitis isn’t completely gone, so we’re trying not to jump the gun on what the rest of her life will look like.  

Her lab work was normal, so we’ve elected to chalk the cause of the glaucoma up to bad genes (bassets, Jack Russells and many other breeds are predisposed to the condition).  We could do more tests, but we’ve opted to focus on management, because the treatment won’t change regardless of the cause. 

She’s acting more like Sissy again, and that does all of our hearts good.

    Yay! And you’re right… cause doesn’t really matter, it’s all about management. So glad things are already looking up!
