ANNIE'S EYE DOCTOR VISIT
Today was our follow-up visit after the Nor'easter emergency. Annie was so excited to see Cassie, the vet tech and the doctor. We reviewed what happened to prompt us to head to emergency then the doctor gave her a thorough examination.
Annie's condition was assessed as follows:
Her overall condition is good and her eye is healing nicely however she is experiencing more irritation than expected at this time. Some inflammatory debris can be seen around her lens implant.
Two injections were administered. One under her conjunctiva to ease her inflammation and one directly into the eye to dissolve the inflammatory debris with a Tuesday Christmas Eve follow-up to determine her progress provided she shows improvement during the intervening week.
After the excitement of two car rides, a walk, visiting her friends at VERG, seeing new sights and smelling new smells Annie is blissfully asleep on my bed. I'm tired but before I can collapse dinner must be served the furry family members, Annie's pill must be administered and her eye drops put in.
No rest for the weary...
