Look at how happy Tyne is. He doesn’t get to have the upper hand all that often. Byzan, however, is still a bit of a Deputy Downer.
Well, tomorrow is a big day. I’m taking #Squirrel in for eye surgery tomorrow. After that, she’ll be homebound for 2-4 weeks after that, and she basically won’t be able to see for most of that time, as I understand it. TWO TO FOUR WEEKS.
I can’t overstate how hard a situation like that is. I can’t imagine being basically blind for that long. It would drive me crazy. I mean, I depend on my eyes UTTERLY. I’d be unable to work, to read, to watch TV. And I’d need someone to help me with damn near everything.
So I’m going to be nursemaid and seeing-eye dog for a month. It’s going to be an emotional rollercoaster, I’m sure of it. It’ll be hard on me and WAY harder on her.
Small price to pay to preserve her vision, though. Very small price to pay. (We’re also paying several thousand dollars, but that’s neither here nor there.)
