Hi, my name is Del, and my husband and I have a 9 year old Shiba/Husky mix named Kylee who was diagnosed with primary glaucoma in her right eye Sept. of 2017.
As the Dr. explained the disease and it’s inevitable ugly path my tears weld up and as they ran down my face it was all I could do to not just break down right there in that nightmarish moment.
We have been giving our sweet girl eyedrops in hopes of keeping her as comfortable as possible and hoping to hold off the progression in the left eye. Unfortunately, she succumbed to this unforgiving disease in her left eye on June 8th.
It breaks my heart as i see the life she once knew stolen away from her. She has been such a trooper through this whole ordeal, but I feel helpless as I know there is nothing i can do to make it better. If It’s not bad enough this disease steals our fur babies eyesight, there is a great chance the eye or eyes must be removed due to infection or great pain.
I have so prayed the good Lord would heal her, but if it isn’t His will, then I pray I find support and comfort through this forum and others heartfelt stories.
I get sick to my stomach when I think she may lose her eyes all together. If anyone has had to face that I would greatly appreciate any advice or solace you can give. God’s blessings to you all!
