i spy with my right eye...

So there I was sitting in the kitchen just having drank a ton of water and dripping my jowl juice all over the floor, when dad spied it. My right eye had a "wink". Now my "winks" are not my sad attempt at picking you up at a bar one night, but a sign of the dreaded ulcer. With my recent eye surgery, and me fighting off a minor infection from the stitches, this was cause for alarm. Luckily, I had my last follow up appointment with the eye doctor today. Mom had a fun day planned...a trip to the eye vet (get the all clear-see you nevah sucka) then off to Pt. Isabel to play with dogs and then a dreamy bath. I was even going to keep mom company while she had her car washed! Oh the good times we had planned....until the "wink."

We arrive at the doctor, they stick all sorts of things in my eyeballs, then off go the lights, and the nice doctor lady shakes her head...that can't be good. It seems I like to grow things, extra sex organs...long toenails....extra eyelashes....what does that all mean? Well when they fixed my orbs they remove all existing eyelashes and their follicles. Well, I guess I like to grow mine back, or maybe some new ones, you know whatever works for me. I guess that didn't work for my eyes (or moms wallet).
I'm going to spare you all the deets, but in the end I had a swollen right eye and no more follicles and I was given some good "medicinal" opiates. Hehe...I totally had the munchies after. Wow, since when do I have a pink unicorn living in my backyard?

Doc says I should be back to normal tomorrow, well normal for me, and if I feel pain then I'm suppose to take me "special medicine". Mom is just happy my orb wasn't so puffy, and that I didn't get a bad ulcer. Mom is also happy that we bought pet insurance...but that's for another blog.


  1. You're a Superfreak! Or maybe just bionic. Or both? I'm glad the orbage is better and hope you're back to "normal" soon.

    PS: Dutch says enjoy the special medicine.

  2. I'm glad you're OK. Eye stuff is never fun, but you sure are being a trooper.


  3. You are...amazing! Growing back new eyelashes? I think it's just because your body knows how critical your orbs are in getting your way and was trying to make them as orb-tastic as possible! Remember to tell your mom that she still owes you that special fun day as soon as you are feeling better and off the meds.
    PS. You have no idea how much my mom wishes her and dad had bought pet insurance for me. Big mistake...big.

  4. A pink unicorn!? That's awesome.

    Your poor little orbs. They really have had a tough time. Hang in there!

  5. Thanks for all the words of encouragement. All the swelling has gone down and I'm feeling a lot better, just a bit sore. I held off on the special medicine, but may take it tonight if needed.
    Mom says the pills make me all loopy, and should make me sleep. Silly mom, I don't like to sleep and no stinking pill is gonna make me!

  6. Bellatrix . . . I see FEAR in my Mommy's eyes every time she reads of your "adventures" in VetVille (or as Mommy puts it - VET BILL).
    I hope the saga of the Orbs ends soon with nothing but healthy eyeballs from here on out.

  7. Isn't pet insurance the greatest? We have it for our hormone imbalances. Saves mom a ton of money. And we get to go to Carealot, our favorite pet store, after each trip. Awesome.
    Hope you get back to normal soon!

  8. Hee hee you grow extra stuffs...maybe one day it will finally come in handy! So about that pink unicorn.....


  9. Oh, Belly!! You and your "extras"! I'm just so glad to hear that you're okay now, and that the special medicine was sorta fun--at least for a little while. ;)

  10. We are happy to hear that you're on the mend but were upset that weren't feeling well. Our mom has been sick and we are just now catching up. Let us know if there is anything we can do.
    Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

  11. I'm so sorry you got an ouchie eye-ulcer. It sounds like you handle it well!
