Well, this weekend has not been good - Thursday night, I noticed Ace was having some eye troubles, watery, squinty, cloudy. Of course this was after the vet was already closed.

I took him in first thing in the morning, and he of course had a corneal ulcer, and it perforated. He will for sure be blind, and probably will lose his eye. :(

It happened so fast, and I don't know what I missed. I feel so awful for him :'(

Poor Ace! I know he will get used to the impairment if this is what happens but it's still sad.

We need all kinds of prayers and good vibes. Ace's eye is still the same, and he has till Monday to turn it around before we discuss enucleation. To the tune of $600.

He is on a host of meds, otoflaxin drops, serum drops, pain meds, chloromphenocol oral and chloromphenocol ointment.

He has to kick the infection and that eye has to break down on its own.

You wouldn't know a things wrong with him from the way he acts *knocks wood*

Not much change today. He was down an ounce or so tonight, so I gave him some CC.

I can't tell if he's acting odd, or if it's in my head.

Don't think the eye hurts, cause he scratches it. Maybe the Chloromphenicol is messing with his stomach? Beans look normal.

Happy Gotcha Day, Oliver!!

One year ago today, I picked up Oliver from the Animal Rescue League in Des Moines.

He stole my heart the moment I saw him sprawled out against the glass in the cage, feet kicked out behind him.

He looked at me like oh, you're finally here. It's about time you came to get me.

I knew he was the one for us.

I picked him up and never let him go. :')

As you can see, his napping style hasn't changed!

(bonus nap points for pulling the cuddle sac over for a pillow)

I love you my big squishy boy, and am so glad you picked us!! ;)

Happy adoption day to Oliver. He's such a handsome boy. He's pretty fortunate to have landed himself in such a wonderful home too. Just look at all the cage furnishings!

Aw, what a lucky (and smart!) boy. Knows what he needs to stay comfy and safe, including you as his slave!

(Hope Ace's eye continues to improve, too.)

I'm glad you found that gorgeous big squishy Oliver. How could I covet him otherwise?

WHIPLASH! Hi, all! If anyone around here still remembers me, I have life updates!!

It looks like last time this thread was updated, Ace was ill, and had had surgery - I ended up losing him to stones, which as many know here, are the worst.

Oliver did well as a lone pig for awhile, but that didn't last long. More to follow.

First things first. Spring of 2016, I dumped my absolutely good-for-nothing ex, and got a dog!

Rescue Dalmatian, meet Purdy!

Next, met my now-fiancé - wedding to come in November 2018! He also loves Purdy :)
