Back to the Vet for Chris

My wife noticed around the middle of last week that Chris’s eye looked a little pink. She had some eye medication from another time that Chris or one of our other cats had an eye infection so we put that in Chris’s eye for a couple of days but it didn’t seem to help. I made an appointment for him on Thursday and on Friday afternoon I brought him to the vet.

Our concern was that it was pink eye or something like that and he would spread it to the other cats but the vet didn’t seem to think it was contagious. He asked me if he was scratching his eye, which I hadn’t noticed. It didn’t occur to me until later that maybe the problem was caused by a scratch.

Whatever the issue, he gave us a tube of medicine and we have been putting it in his eye. He hates it when we do that and he also hates it when I put medicine in his ears and now we have to do both. In two days I have not noticed much of an improvement. Hopefully it will get better before we have to leave for West Virginia.

If all goes well, and so far it hasn’t, we will be closing on Wednesday and leaving on Thursday morning.

Also, my computer has been acting up lately and today it won’t start. I tried using my rescue disk but that doesn’t work either so I posted this using my phone. I am not a big fan of working from my phone so I may not be as active for a while but I will try to keep you posted about our move.

    Oh, poor Chris. This doesn’t look good at all. While I hope the closing goes well, I hope more so that Chris’ eye is better before you leave for WV. Get better, little guy!

    Chris, that eye looks very painful, so we are sending lots of POTP that it heals very quickly. Wishing your folks good luck with the move. Hoping all goes smoothly this time.

    Darn! Sorry about the issues with moving AND with Chris’ eye. That eye looks like it hurts a lot but hopefully it will get better and STAY that way so it won’t be an extra worry during what is already a stressful time. Fingers crossed here for you all!

    I had to apply that eye ointment in the late Dougy’s eyes from time to time. He had a problem with eye infections. Nasty business! It was a gel that he hated and that was awkward to apply since I had to get a small amount in without touching it. Best wishes with Chris’ eye and ear. You are really blessed, eh?!

      Maybe computer programs and operating systems have just become overly complicated. In the old days computer programmers had to be very conservative with the number of lines of code because memory was at a premium. They don’t have that problem today which might actually be a problem.

    Poor Chris. I hope the meds start working. Sounds like you may have a couple of rough weeks ahead with everything else! I’m sending purrs your way.
