Don't have a lot to say today... it was a good day, until we came home and discovered Patches was having issues with her eye. She was barely opening it, and it was all red and swollen.

The night has gone downhill since, with a trip to the vet costing nearly all of my paycheck from today (which we kind of needed for bills and such). Family emergencies take precedence, though (natch). Well, the funds were nice for the 4 hours we had them. :/

It's just so odd. She was the picture of perfect health (well, as much as that can be true for an overweight 14YO cat with some conjunctivitis issues) this morning when I left for work, and now?

Now she's lying around not doing anything due to lack of vision in one eye, spent from a trip to the vet where she endured more poking and prodding than I would have put up with if I'd been in her place, a cone on her head to prevent her touching her eye (there were scratches on her cornea that the vet suspects she caused from trying to relieve the discomfort she felt), drugged to the gills on pain meds and drooling everywhere, and the vet noticed her bad eye (the right) was cloudy and wasn't tracking movement like the left was.

In short, it's bad. And it sucks because it's not something we could have predicted or prevented.

So, yeah... we're in a bit of a difficult spot right now; financially, emotionally, and medically. Prayer/well wishes (depending on your inclination) would be much appreciated right now.

Thank you for listening.
