Two years and counting!!

A very happy, very special Thorsday to you!

photo.JPGTwo years ago today we were in the thick of one of the worst times of my life; the Knight, Gretchen Greer and I were trying to pass time while Sissy was having her left eye removed.  The next 36 hours were sheer hell; there’s no polite way to put it.  Sis was confused, and while they (vets) assure me she wasn’t in pain, she was certainly out of sorts in a way that stressed me beyond measure.

I was trying to get a cute full-face photo of the anniversary girl, and ironically, this is what she offered… the un-eye as we call it.   Do note that the wee one is ever-present.  These two are “stuck like glue” as the song goes. 

It has gotten easier.  We are SLIGHTLY less manic about her remaining eye, but we’re definitely hyper-vigilant still.  If Sissy shows any signs of stress, she gets an eye inspection immediately.  I’m still toying with the idea of buying our own Tono-pen so I can even check her pressures myself.  But we can’t rest easy, ever.  We *MIGHT* be able to breathe a sigh of relief next year this time, because for some reason, one of the eye vets told me that maybe if we made it to age six without incident, MAYBE we could relax a TINY bit…

Are you celebrating anything today?

    That your girl has made it so far with her right eye. She’s so incredibly special. I’m glad you have her – she’s teaching you lessons you didn’t know you needed to know. g

    Two years already? I understand why you are vigilant about checking the other eye. Don’t ever stop. The princess must be kept in the utmost health at all times.
