Since Noah's eye exam last month we've been treating his eyes with two different ointments daily, but I was getting frustrated because they didn't seem to be getting better. They were both still red and in the morning they were goopy.
Then on Friday we had yet another thunderstorm. At 1:00 there was a lightning strike and the power went out. Then the real fun started!
The power stayed out for 22 hours. No lights, no air conditioning, no telephone, no internet, no hot food or coffee. For dinner we ate ice cream because it was melting. I sat up until 3AM reading on my Kindle because the dogs wouldn't settle down. We all finally got a couple hours sleep while I worried about the food in the freezer and other things.
The news about Fudge did nothing to help my stress level. The culture came back positive again for e-coli. We can't seem to get this infection under control. Dr B was worried that it might now be a drug resistant strain, so he had the university do another test. Yesterday it came back and there are several drugs that should kill it, so we're trying a strong one for the next two weeks and then we'll test again. Keep those paws crossed because Fudge really needs some help with this. If this drug doesn't work, he may be in serious trouble. The vet says he can live with e-coli, but not for long.
Well, here's a picture of Noah with his happy, comfortable eyes.
