Thanks Pam....we welcome all the prayers we can get.... her sighted eye is at risk during the surgery do to the placement of the optic nerve and with her being so small, it makes it a bit more delicate surgery....it will be a long stressful day...she had a nasty hyphema but that was resolving but her pressures had shot up so the decision was made to go ahead with the surgery....

I just saw your post about your latest addition being pregnant...I hope everything goes well with the delivery..not knowing the fathers breed must be scary...but she is in the best of hands in your care....

Kathleen, rest assured Zari will remain in our prayers until she is safely thru her surgery and back home .. And we are continually praying for Bella's healing and well being. I know these are extremely stressful times for you guys~ you are both such awesome caregivers to your 3 special needs chi babies. Thinking of your little family is inspiring to me and strengthens my faith. Blessings, Deb

Will be thinking of you!

If you don't mind me asking... how did you know she had developed glaucoma? Brody is blind in his left eye. I wonder if developing glaucoma in a blind eye is common?

Both of my girls have been under the care of an ophthalmologist for ocular assessments....they have their pressures done twice a year....and prn...according to Dr West they are at high risk for glaucoma ..pressure checks can be done by your regular DVM..with this last check Zari had a hyphema and her pressures were up...she would now need to have Azopt gtts TID...being that eye is non visual it was decided enucleation was in order...as you know the visual eye is put in jeopardy when the affected eye is acting up....I think I remember Brody was under the care of a ophthalmologist and if pressure checks were in order he/she would have have recommended them I'm sure...

Ok thanks for clarifying that. He does have a yearly exam with his opthamologist. He never mentioned glaucoma being a problem but I will ask about it next time we are in.

I will be anxious to hear that her surgery is a success! It will be a relief to not have to worry about that eye anymore. I'm sure she will do great.

Continued prayers for Zari, please???
Zari had her surgery today.. Please continue the prayers that she retains the vision in her remaining eye. I am sure Kathleen will update as she is able, what with Bella's serious eating disorder and Zari in the hospital, Kathleen and hubby need lots of prayer for themselves as well. Blessings, Deb
