Angel and I are inseparable, and have been for ten years; we only have each other. Mid last-year, I noticed a cloudiness to her eyes, and after seeing a specialist, it turned out Angel only had mild cataracts, which could be operated on if they became worse.
And they did, quickly. After four delays to her op due to the holidays, she was scheduled to have her sight restored on Tuesday. Instead I got the heartbreaking news she has PRA, and nothing can be done. She’ll be completely blind in a matter of months.
I’m devastated for us both, and don’t know what to do or where to turn. I feel like it’s the beginning of the end, and that it’s all so unfair. Angel has the most beautiful temperament, is an ex-therapy dog, and brings joy to so many, and then she gets this disease, on top of having a double knee reconstruction in June 2015.
Any advice or encouragement or words of hope would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
