Blog Note

I'm going to be out the rest of the afternoon. I just got back from the vet with Dudley, who has a severe eye infection in both eyes. We were just there this weekend, for his boosters, and Dudley was fine when the vet checked his eyes routinely and saw no problem; today his eyes were so red that the vet suspected his corneas might have ulcerated. Luckily, that turned out not to be the case.

Also in good news, it isn't contagious to cats, so the girls should be fine.

We've got three meds, one of which numbs his eyes so that he won't scratch at them, but I've still got to keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't worry his eyes and make them any worse. It hasn't affected his vision so far, but one eye is getting cloudy, so we're taking this very seriously.

Anyway, I'm taking the rest of the day off so I can keep my attention on him. And because I'm kind of a wreck, frankly.

Dudley was a very good boy at the vet, and is now resting comfortably with his BFF Piggy.
