Black Pearls of Wisdom...

we didn't see what we thought we saw...

Well, Dixie had her follow-up with the ophthalmologist this morning. Apparently we saw what we wanted to see the other day when we thought we saw reaction in her eye.

Even though Dixie's eye is less swollen and is more comfortable, her eye is still non-visual and her pressure is actually slightly worse. So, the meds helped with the Uveitis, but did nothing for the Glaucoma.

We've added another medicine to the mix, having Urine Blasto Antigen testing done, and are going to have the abdominal & thoracic xrays and ultrasound repeated, looking for the systemic disease or neoplasia that's causing the Glaucoma.

And so it goes...
