I have not updated since I can not access this site from my lap top for some unkown reason... Anyway

Katie does not have glaucoma. She has detached retinas. So to find out why we did alot of very expensive lab work and found that she has been exposed to Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but not at levels that would cause the inflammation and the vision issues. So currently we are treating her with antibiotics, oral steroids, and eye drops for the next month.

John and I are coping well, she can see large motions and does much better when it is bright. At night in the yard she really relies on voice and her nose to get her back to the steps.

We are waiting to see if she can regain some vision once the inflammation goes down in her eyes, we shall see. So for now wish us well. We will be celebrating her 4th birthday in about a month and a half.

I hope Katie feels better soon and the inflammation is easily treated with the antibiotics. Hopefully her retina condition is not permanent... big hugs to Katie /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yay.gif

Wishing the best for Katie. Thank goodness she seems to be dealing with the sight impairment like a champ.
