“What is this silly moo cow doing on my head?”

 

 

Thought I would share all of these wonderful pictures of Leo through his life with you and then share the medical issue that he currently going through.  On April 2nd Leo had an emergency visit to the vet and we learned that he has an “anterior luxation” which means that the little fibers that hold his lens in place tore somehow and his lens came through his pupil and is sitting in the front of his eye.  This not only effects his vision, but is also painful because his eye is getting more fluid in it than it should.  Leo is on two different medications, one to help with pain and one to help with the eye swelling.  Unfortunately our options are limited and Leo will be needing to get enucleation surgery (aka my baby needs to have his eye removed).  Surgery is expensive and we are doing a fundraiser to help get enough money for Leo’s surgery.  The sooner we are able to do the surgery, the less pain Leo is in.    

To learn more about Leo’s condition & to donate please go to:  http://gogetfunding.com/project/leo-s-luxated-lens-surgery

 

Also, the more we can spread the word about Leo’s eye condition and surgery needs the better.  Please re-blog, share on facebook, tweet, pin, stumble and everything else you can do.

The milky white thing that you are seeing in Leo’s eye is his lens.

You can see that it is not comfortable for Leo to keep his eye open.  He is also tearing a lot which is causing the tear stains on his face.

Today was a beautiful day…not only weather wise, but nature wise.  A friend and I went on a wonderful long walk and I was able to snap some great photos of spring awakenings along the way.  I love spring!
