PRA Diagnosis Day

Today Dr. Greentree confirmed that I have PRA, a recessive genetic disease
that causes adult-onset blindness late in entles. (I'm nearly 8 and thought that we were home free after normal Cerfs at age 2,4, and 6.) I can't see out of my left eye at all, but I can still see well enough out of my right eye to show Nyx who is alpha and to find the red ball occasionally. It doesn't hurt, but PRA is going to take a lot of getting used to. Sadly, I'm going to have to retire in my work as a PetPal since finding toys thrown for me outside of ouor home is very difficult.
