Seeing Eye Person....

About 3 days ago, I noticed Bailey was walking into things. I called Kris on Friday to ask her if a dog could go blind suddendy. Anyway, long story short, yesterday morning I called Laurie. I had not intended to tell her until she got home but I was really concerned that something else might being going on. Yesterday morning I took her down to the vet and yes for some unknown reason, Bailey is now pretty much sightless. It seems some dogs can suddenly have retinal detachment. The vet says she will adjust to her new world. Poor Laurie is a wreck. I have become Bailey's eyes. I am limiting her area to the livingroom and kitchen. She seems to be able to maneuver about there alright. I have taken to sleeping in the livingroom on the couch, so that if she gets up, I can help. But other than vision loss,she remains the same. Hopefully the blood work will also not be too bad.

I did work some on the Daisy chain quilt top. I will post a icture later. I should be able to finish it today. I don't really feel like doing anything else. I need to go to Publix today-no food in the house.

Poor Laurie, poor Bailey, poor Karin. So sorry. I know we have joked about how many days till Laurie cames home, but this is very sad. Hope she adjusts quickly both now and when Laurie gets home.

BIG HUGS to Bailey, you and Laurie. I think she will adjust OK--just don't move any furniture around! Maybe one of your cats will take pity and become a seeing eye cat. I think Bailey will be OK at least she is familiar with your house. Bless her heart--it's been a rough summer.
