It's off to Petsmart We Go

Kaylee had her first trip to PetsMart on Saturday. She drooled most of the way to the store but loved being there. Lots of good smells and people handing out love and treats. She wasn't all that fond of getting her claws clipped but it had to be done. The mister and I watched (from a distance) to see how the pros handled it and hopefully we can do it next time.

The trip back wasn't as pleasant for Kaylee or us. The poor pup ended up puking probably because of all the treats. It took her the rest of the day to really recuperate. Saturday was about 90F so it probably wasn't the best time to take her on a field trip. Hindsight is 50/50 dontcha know.

It's Official

I had my ophthalmologist appointment today and what I suspected is true - I have diabetic retinopathy.

The eye doc has referred me to a specialist and the appointment is at the end of July. The doc is pretty sure that there will be laser surgery involved but we won't know for sure until the next appointment.

I'm going to go cry now. Just kidding. Sort of.

I believe I have eye damage due to diabetes. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think I am. I have an ophthalmologist appointment next month and I'll find out for sure. The odd thing is that the symptoms (kind of "blank" spots in my vision, mostly in my left eye, macular edema?) started after I started taking care of myself. I suppose I should discuss it with Eli but I don't know that I want to worry him before I find out what's going on.
