Well, mom's had a day to digest the Pannus info and she's doing good. She did some research and thinks what I have is Atypical Pannus (typical? Pfft! No way!) which actually affects my third eyelid, not my corn-ea. Good thing is, this is less likely to lead to corn-eal scaring or blindness.
Mom almost had a small come-apart yesterday while doing her research and saw all the horrible piktures on the internet. Why do people put the WORST photos EVER of something online? Why can't they post the normal "see it's not that bad?" photos? Seriously??
Luckily one of our GSD message board/facebook friends hooked mom up with two GSD owners who have dogs with Pannus and they helped set her straight. She felt much better after chatting with them.
Right after mom almost lost it, she did some retail therapy to feel better....look what I'm getting next Wednesday!!!!
Yes, those are my new pink doggles complete with rhinestone hearts that are in the mail right now! Dad says there's no way I'll wear them, but mom thinks I will. And if I do wear them, well, she's going to get me another pair of black ones for the days I want to go incognito! How J-Lo will I be?? Fergie ain't got nothing on me! I'm thinking this should be a very interesting blog post next week!
I'm glad mom is less freaked out....I swear, the woman's like a crackhead rabid bear when someone/something messes with one of her kids. This morning while we were snuggling in bed I snuggled extra close to let her know everything was okay. I'm fine, really. This stuff ain't bothering me...I'm in no pain and I'm getting cheese four times a day! But I guess that's just what mom's do. I need to make dad buy her something extra special for mother's day this year!
