ON Saturday MOM and I got up early and picked up Marcus to go with me to the Vet to keep me company in the car.  

I was so excited cos Mom put on my pretty dress and harness with a beautiful little flower on it.  You will notice there are not true pictures because Marcus did not send them to my mom's facebook and now we cannot find them. 

The Eye Vet was about an hour away so by the time we got there I was pretty nervous from riding that far in the car.  Plus I had to sit in the back seat wif Marcus and I wanted to be wif my MOMMA helping drive.

When we got to the Eye Vet the first friend I faught I saw was Edward, Lily's brother.  I started jumping all around and said, " Hi sure are a handsome big boy!"  And this little French Bulldog looked over at me, and said, " My name is Tucker...."  I still fink it was Edward.

Then I saw Shayla whose Momma takes beautiful desert and mountain pictures...I ran over to her, cos after all I am a friendly little pug, and once again said, " Hi Shayla...its me Stella Rose"....but Shayla was not feeling to good, and Marcus pointed out to me Shayla was a Sam......THEN MY NAME WAS CALLED.....

I liked the eye vet...he petted my fur, and said I was a pretty pug, and then he got this weird looking hand held instrument out of this box and he kept touching my eye with it.  At first I didn't care, but after 531 hours I got a little sick of it, and started squirming to get down. 

Finally he told me MOM my eye pressure in my right eye was around 19 and my eye pressure in my left eye was around 22.....all in the range of being JUST FINE!!   My momma was so happy and she even said, "are you sure..." and he tested me one more time.  Yepppp........

He toles my Mom that it is true I cannot hardly see anything, it is true I have very very dry eyes, even though momma puts special medicine in twice a day, and that will never change.  He said sometimes I will get ulcers, etc.....and he gave mom some new drops that just came out on the market to try for two is supposed to help with the cloudiness.  They are for Gussie and me.  

Mom was so happy, Dad was so happy, everyone was so happy.  We hated that we had to wait till Monday to tell all of you. 

Today is Macey's test day at the big University in Iowa City.  Her Daddy decided to go instead of my Mom since it would be a long day.  Mom is going to go on Wednesday when the results all come back and they here what  Macey's treatment plan is.   Macey got a special gift from Walter and Millie's mom in the mail.  Her momma is going to take pictures of her in it and we will put it on the blog this week.

Grandma was very sick since Thursday.  At first they worried it was her "C" treatment medicine but now they think she had a very bad virus. She is going back to the Dr. today just to make sure.  We stopped by there on Saturday to check on her after my Vet visit. 

She showed us all her cards, and my Grandpa was excited because they got one in the mail from Texas while we were there.  It was from that little stinker Sully!    More about that later.......Stella Rose

  9. Whoo hoo! Glad you don't have the problem your mom feared. We hope Macie has good news for her human vet visit this week and your okay now.

    We have a question about the comment you left on our blog. If one of you has to ride the mower and one of you has to push, do you get paid for mowing the lawn? We're afraid Jan will see your comment and next time she'll make us do the work while she watches.

  10. We e happy you found a good vet that knew the "answer" DRY EYES!!

    Yay,, and good for dry eye medicines!

    We hope you Grandma gets over her virus soon!

  14. Stella I am sooooooooooooooo happy your eyes tested normal, for them. That is HUGE! I am curious why Edward, who seems like a friendly sort, would tell you his name is Tucker. That is just weird. But then again, it is weird Edward would be in the midwest when he lives in CA.
    Thinking good thoughts and donning the juju tutu for Macey and your g'ma.
    Love Noodles

  15. My momma has dat dry eye thing too. Sendin lotsa POTP for Macey and da grandma.

    Lily & Edward

  18. Now THIS is the kind of Post that we LIVE fur... So Full of EXCELLENT news. It really helps to make up fur the scary or Sad posts... It gives us the PROOF that POTP really does help. Can't cure or Fix...EVERYTHINGY... butt it STILL helps.
    POTP is a Grand thingy.

  19. You've made us feel a bit better today. We will keep our paws crossed for Macey, but we're happy Grandma is feeling better and hope the new medicine helps your eyes.

  20. That is such good news about your eyes!!!!!!!!!

  21. That is such good news that your pressure is normal, why that means no pain being normal. Praying maybe those new drops will help keep your eyes and Gussie's eyes moist so the ulcers stay away. Hopefully Macey will get good news also.
    Thanks for being a friend

  23. BOL That's crazy that you just happen to be at Grandma's when my card arrived. Did she happen to say anything to you????

    Continued prayers for Macey and Grandma.

    Aroo to you,

  24. Crikey Stella Rose ..... some GOOD news and some BAD news, aye?? It is good about your eyes. Doesn't matter if you don't see so good. My Nan doesn't see so good either but she copes and she's a human. We cope much better than they do. AND dear little Macey ...... I sure hope all goes well for her. The BAD bit was about your Gran being sick. Crikey I sure hope she's feeling a lot better real soon. It's great all the cards are helping her feel better, aye?? Mum and I are still thinking of you all and sending lots of POTP from downunder.

  25. Oh Stella, I'm so glad everything checked out ok with your eyes. I think I might have had that same test done - it was annoying but if the results are good, it was worth it. Sounds like your Mom knows how to take great care of your lovely orbs and keep them healthy. Make sure you are good when she's trying to put those drops in! Sending some good juju to Macey, too!


  26. I'm so glad that your eye pressure is GOOD! That's great news. I hope that those new drops help the cloudiness.

    Sam must have been very honored that you thought that he was a brown doggie named Shyla! I sure hope that Sam is feeling better too.

    I hope that everyone who is sick in your family is getting better - Macey and your Grandma. We're thinking of you.
