If It's Friday, We Must Be At the Vet's

We had an early morning appointment with Dr. B today. He wanted to recheck Morgan's eye and go over her blood results with me. On Tuesday I noticed that one of Fudge's ears was red and angry looking, so he went along this morning.

It was good news for a change. Morgan's blood work was all normal. He had been worried about an infection that could move from the eye into the brain, but no infections were indicated. The eye is looking normal, or what passes for normal with Morgan. A couple years ago her irises started fading and what had been chocolate brown eyes are now gray and almost transparent. They are no longer red or swollen and the iris is the right size, again. The pupils are still somewhat unresponsive. I've wondered for awhile if she was going blind and I think she may be, but it's so gradual that she is dealing with it with no obvious difficulty.

Fudge's ear is irritated. He has a lot of hair in his ear canal, so the Doctor shaved the hair away from the outer parts of the ear to allow air flow. I have to clean his ears daily and use antibiotic ear drops for a week. Then we have a special medicine to use in his ears every other day to control the ph. The ear doesn't seem to be bothering him, it just bothers me.

Next we had to go to the electronics store to arrange for someone to set up my new computer and make some adjustments to it. For Christmas Rob gave me an I-Mac that I adore, but I had to keep my old PC going because I have some specialty software that isn't supported by the Mac.

My PC is slowly dying, it takes about an hour to boot up. While I was sick with the flu a couple weeks ago, Rob bought me a new PC. Instead of taking me a week to transfer everything over, we're having someone come to the house to do it all at once and make the thing wireless at the same time. I can't wait to play with the new machine.

When the mail came I had a package. Don't you love getting packages in the mail? Inside was this gorgeous yarn. I just love looking at it. The only thing that worries me is that it's all wool. I'm allergic to wool and the last time I used it my hands got red and itchy. I'm going to take an allergy pill before using it and hope that I can handle it.



I'm not the only one in the house that likes getting presents in the mail. You can see the furry vultures circling the yarn. I can read their little minds. They're trying to figure out if this is a dog toy. I won't let them read Nichole's blog.
