    sudden blindness update

    Thank you all for your kind and helpful messages.

    We have just received the lab results. Sadly the white dots are secondary tumours. There is a primary tumour else where, probably in her chest or intestines. There is nothing we can do apart from make her as comfortable as possible and do all the things she loves to do while she's able. Because of how rapidly this appears to have happened our vet only thinks she has a few weeks left. she still seems well apart from the eyes.

    We are all devastated!

    Did you see an oncologist? Do they know where the primary tumor is via MRI or the like? Surgery is not an option with her being so young?

    If not I pray you can keep her comfortable for the time you have left doing all she loves to do.

    I feel your devestation.
