The too-hard basket
Just a note to say there may not be much frivolity from me in the next few days. Suki’s eyesight has started to fail – she’s been bumping into things in the past week and is at the vet now having checks for hypertension and other problems which may be contributing to vision loss. But the vet seemed to think it could be cataracts, which of course can only be corrected by surgery, and at the age of 18.5 she wouldn’t survive it. So looks like she’s going to have to live out the rest of her life in semi, if not complete, blindness. If she can’t adapt then .. well the alternative is pretty obvious at her age and I should just accept it, but it’s so, so hard.
