He took a good long look at the eye with the lighted magnifying scope and said he hadn't really seen anything quite like it before. Neither had I and I did a lot of googling! Warning: just don't google. Nothing good ever comes from it!
Anyway. He swabbed it and looked at the specimen on the slide. Infection was not detected, but it could be that he didn't swab hard enough and get enough on the slide. Eew! Maggie May was re-tested for FeLV- negative! She had been tested when she was just a little squirt, but better to be safe than sorry! So that leaves the possibility that it is viral- possibly the herpes virus rearing it's ugly head right in Maggie May's eyeball! So, we got a prescription for an anti-viral eye drop to give up to six times per day if possible. But since the hubs and I both work away from home, looks like it's going to be around 4 times a day. Caution: the drops may sting and they cost a small fortune. I just pray they work! If not, we may go another route or even have to see an out of town ophthalmologist.
Hopefully the drops will be the cure and I won't have to rename this blog "Maggie May and Her Super Expensive Eyeball."
Thanks everyone for all the wonderful prayers, purrs and well wishes!! Y'all are just great friends!
