Re: Barney

Barney's eye is looking MUCH better. And the improvement seems to be sustained, overall. He still squints quite a bit, but the eye is opened probably more that it is closed. I am sooo hoping that he...

Re: Barney

ROFL! I wish we could! Poor John will never be allowed to live that down.
He is seeing Dr Martinez tommorow. It's an hour drive, so I guess it could be a lot worse.
Here is a blurb about her from...

Actually, he cooperates very well. He knows he gets cheese after the drops. Barney will tolerate nearly anything for a piece of cheese. :D

Re: Barney

Hey Jenny!
Lacrilube is some pretty good stuff. We use it at work all the time on patients who are unable to blink and moisten their eyes. Thanks for the tip
