We needed a dictionary to translate Dixie's diagnosis:
Uveitis-nonvisual, negative dazzle & menace, pupil fixed & dilated, moderate aqueous flare, central hypopion, fundus visable, optic nerve appears slightly inflamed, pet has 1 month history of weight loss & elevated liver enzymes, ddx: systemic disease, neoplasia (possible cancer at bottom of eye--not primary, but secondary spread from an unknown location. Dixie just had ultrasound and xrays last month & nothing was seen).
Secondary Glaucoma - mild bupthalmic.
3 medicated drops to try and reduce pressure, inflammation & possible underlying infection. If no results by Monday appointment, we are looking at taking the eye. Paws crossed...

Oh, Dixie girl, we are praying that you won't lose the eye! We love you our beautiful Black Pearl!
Sweet Dixie, We are so glad to read the new diary that your eye is improving and responding to the medicine - and your wonderful doctors did so much. Lots of positive thoughts!
