Blinded by the Light

This kitty and the one at the bottom crack me up... cats and baths... no fun!  LOL

What a day!  Rainy, methotrexate day, and a Monday.  Ack.

Fuzzy and I had our eye doctor appointments today.   He got to leave school a little early, so he was thrilled!  LOL

Somewhere during the 2nd hour in the office, he lost the thrill.  LOL  It was a long, long time.  Our eye doc is extremely thorough, so I can't complain.  In fact, I go back for two more tests in December. 

The doctor wants to do a visual field test as a baseline now, while we are sure the brain tumor is not impacting my vision.  Smart to do, and I appreciate him being proactive for me! 

Today was also Libby's birthday!  She was treated to bacon and sausage in her dinner, a piece of our meatloaf, and a favorite Booda bone!  She has been snoring for a while now, a very happy labbie!

Unfortunately, I have had a terrible headache all day.  I think it was made worse by the bright light that the eye doc uses.  I don't know... It was better earlier from about 8-10 pm... now it is back again with a vengance.  Ugh. 

Signing off now... will catch up with my alerts and everyone tomorrow. 

Thank you for the kind words for my mom, she is even better today!  Such a relief!

be well,
Dawn

ps... be kind to your kitties... lol

My son gets the visual field test every 6 months also.  His is to make sure the increased pressure in his head is not pressing on the optic nerves causing problems.  Have a good one.

I'm glad your vision is good :)  I personally hate going to the eye doctor...  It always gives me a headache--I'm sure it didn't help yours!  Take care - Julie

These pictures are a hoot!!!  You are lucky to have such an interested eye doctor, many are not...they just want you in & out.  Happy Labbie birthday to Libby!!!  Sounds like her good meal & Booda wore her out....what a lucky girl.  I'm hoping your headache gets better soon.

It's best the eye doc is thorough, just in case he misses anything.
