Default Re: Annie - Getting too smart!

Is that 6 down from the 29 that she was stuck at? Do I have that right?

If so, I wonder why the big improvement after not so much for awhile.

Sending best wishes for the 16th.

Yes, down from 29. We added two more eye drops that reduce eye pressure: Timolol Maleate and Brimonidine Tartrate.

The required drops are the cheaper of them all

That's what I like to hear!

I'm so happy that I haven't kept receipts of all the expenses, that knowledge would drive me crazy! Better not really knowing, and just hand over the credit card.

I wanted to use Tiggy as a medical deduction this year but my hubby wouldn't let me

Hope the pressure stays low till the 16th.... That would HAVE to make the surgery go smoother!! Keeping good thoughts

I tried to declare Hank a child but the accountant looked at me funny. Ah well.

Craig...glad to hear you're going ahead...now this is the laser glaucoma surgery, am I right? That will relieve the pressure and allow her some sight? We'll all be waiting anxiously to hear the news! Hugs!

We tried the <alarm system< cause they did bark a lot if someone came to the door. We got the same look from our accountant

Craig: I am reading with interest for personal reasons. It was the most simple and easy to understand that I read so far. I am being monitored for the beginning of cataracts and signs of glucoma. If there is further deterioration at the next visit in 6 months, that's what I'll probably have to go throuh with yuk

Thanks for the link Craig. Hopefully decreasing her pressure, even if vision isn't completely restored, will alleviate pain than can be associated with high pressure as well.

Sounds like it was a good vet visit Craig...YAY!

Hope you get the eye surgery scheduled and it is a success! That would be awesome. So happy things are moving in the right direction.

As to claiming our pups as children/alarms/medical deductions....I would just be happy if we could slip some of Shadow's vet visits in on our health insurance Yep, not gonna work...seems quite unfair, they ARE are children, they ARE sounding alarms and they ARE (insurance) dependents....haha

The first time I drove through a pharmacy drive through to get Jenny's Lysodren and Prednisone they asked for my insurance card and I just gave it to them without thinking!

I had to holler and grab it back.
