Poor Rusty

What's the outcome of Rusty's visit to the eye specialist? The doctor still couldn't see anything behind that thick layer of blood in his eyeball. Her suspicion is Rusty has been blind in the right eye for sometime now. As a result, he could have walked into something sharp and injured it further.

We'll have to apply eye drop and feed him steroids and wait for the blood to clear before she can examine the eye again.

Even so, the prognosis is grim. If the cataract is severe, chances of restoring his eyesight is very slim even after an operation. There's no point in discussing about it now. Until then, we just have to wait and see.

The good news is, his other eye is in excellent shape. His lifestyle will not be compromised too much except that he may hurt his bad eye again while snooping around the hedge or bushes.

The doctor had nothing but praises for lil Rusty. Not only was he quiet and well behaved, he didn't even flinch or growl when the doctor shone her torch into his eyes.

We left the clinic $70 poorer with no immediate solution in sight. We're supposed to return after 2 weeks. Poor Rusty!

As if the situation isn't bad enough, I stepped on a big pile of dog poo on the way to the car. It stank so much, I tossed the pair of Indian leather shoes in the bin. Poor mummy had to walk to the elevator without any shoes!

Have you thought of seeking a second opinion? For some matters...we can never be too certain.

I just saw him on Sunday and the little pooch was as frisky and affectionate as ever.

Hmm that sounds depressing but they are more resilient than we think, and possibly more so than us. :)

Stepping on dog poo is a good omen... you'll soon step on a pile of money. I hope!!

Sorry to hear about Rusty and the dog poo. Glad to hear Rusty's other eye is still good, though. I remember my grandma went through a cataract operation once...either for both eyes or just one (I don't remember)...I guess it helped somewhat, though not completely.

Nanokeratin locks onto the hair, forming
a fine, smooth coat of keratin. Before you go for them, try products at Keranique for hair care.
Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts,
but you can find a few affordable pure silicone hair products (see
below).
