my eye is soft--it's a good thing

The Mom took me in to see Dr. Jackie because my eye looked more cloudy today and I tried to scratch it (I know, bad Dixie). Dr. Jackie fit us in to her busy schedule.

Bad news is there IS more protein in the fluid behind the cornea. So my vision is more compromised.

Good news is the drops are keeping my eye "soft" so the drains in the inner eye are still working and haven't plugged up. Plugged up = increased pressure = blown pupils = loss of vision. My pressure is 4, which is lower than normal, but makes Dr. Jackie happy.

I'm still on track for staple removal this coming Monday (on the Mom's birthday-how's THAT for a present?).

We should hear back on Thursday with the biopsy results. Paws crossed...
