We've been dealing with an eye issue with Diesel for a week now. For those who are newer here, Dee has diabetes and has artificial lenses in both eyes.
His left eye appears to have receded slightly in his head and both eyes are very inflamed looking. His third eyelid will not recede and is very red and irritated. His first vet visit (when his symptom was only a slight recession of the eye and his inner eyelid not receding all the way) was inconclusive. His eyes were nastier the following day so I got an antibiotic/steroid drop from the vet. That did nothing and since he was on the same drop for months post surgery, I thought he needed a stronger antibiotic. No improvement after 3 days on the second drop.
So I brought him back and the vet is now thinking Horner's syndrome. So - he is on oral antibiotics, the original drops again and they did chest x-rays and a complete blood panel, since Horner's is a symptom of a number of other problems. One of which is cancer.
So - can you all keep a good thought for my money pit?
Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.

Good thoughts for Diesel. I hope you can locate the cause of this soon and that he's better.
You know I'll be by your side, Sharon. This much worry about "what now" is all consuming.

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
Good thoughts and prayers for you and Dee.
The "what now" sometimes overwhelms us. Good thoughts and prayers from here.
“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”
