We got some bad news yesterday at the veterinarian. Truman is not a viable candidate for the eye surgery because the retina is detached in the eye we thought we could restore. This is very common in canine diabetes. So having a blind dog has become our new normal rather than a temporary situation.
The upside is that he is a happy and healthy dog otherwise. While Tom and I are disappointed, Truman is taking it in stride. In fact he just wandered into the office while I am typing this and flopped down beside me. He loves his Mama.
We are going to try to think of ways to expand his world outside of the house and yard so he will feel safe in unfamiliar situations. He used to love to go to this park but I have been worried about taking him since the blindness set in. It's probably more my anxiety about the situation than his. I am hitting the web to do some research and will update the blog about his progress.
