White Lilacs and typical Russian spread of food…

I have to show the lady from Europe who sent us the white lilacs what is happening with them. Well, they are growing and rooting…

Pro Babushka (Svetochka’s mother, which is term for great grandmother) has a definite green thumb and she is proudly growing white lilacs on her balcony in the heart of Moscow. Sometimes life makes you smile and this is one of those times…

I just hope she lets us take then to the village. She may become attached to them. They have become her babies, you know! 😉

This will be a perfect year to plant them in the village. It is going to be cool, wet and wonderful here in Russia…

Thank you very much for the white lilacs…

2000 plus people came by to see update on Boza…

Coffee Time:

Update Boza, white lilacs and good coffee…

Boza went to a very good doctor. He is a believer in keeping the eyes as long as possible, literally opposite of the last doctor. As in everything in life, you have to do what you do to make life work…

We found the clinic out in the woods and found a young energetic veterinarian who was building his own empire for pets. He works seven days a week and was extremely good protective plus curative with Boza. Boza liked him and so did we…

The clinic is on outside of our town Korolev, which is just outside of Moscow. It was a easy good drive and Yandex navigator on Svetochka’s camera phone led us there perfectly. Sunday morning early is the best time to drive the bustling cities surrounding Moscow…

You see what his entrance looks like and the sight of the doctor statue set the tone for the morning. Anyone who greets you with such a wonderful sight, has to be okay!

Boza has a right eye that is healthy, even if the sight is mostly gone per genetic issues, it is in good shape and we should have no issues keeping it that way. But…

The left eye is the bad one and we are going to try to save it. The doctor wants to save it and thinks he can. We started a whole new regiment of eye medicine this morning. After a week of this new medicine, we will go see the doctor again. We also need to go to a special downtown eye center and have special tests run on his eyes. They want to see how far the damage is embedded in the eyes…

The glaucoma is called secondary glaucoma, caused from trauma to his left eye. Which as we understand now, was caused by his genetic eye issue. He ran into something and damaged it in the village. (I believe it was a patch of nettles!) His eyesight blindness is something we could not stop, but the glaucoma is a new issue, caused by all the surrounding faults of his genetic induced blindness…

He has cornea damage in the bad eye and we are working on healing that. It seems that we will be able to heal and solve that issue, given time. Saving the eye is important…

Time frame is to stabilize him by the end of the month and then the doctor goes on his yearly vacation. He will be gone one month and is wanting to get Boza happy and stable. At that time we are going to the village and tidy up life there. Life dictates curve balls many times and we have to follow the pitch the bests we can with the eyes we have…

Boza is doing better today and his eye pressures were good yesterday… Good as in much better than in the past…

Next post is about the white lilacs…

Update Boza, white lilacs and good coffee…

Boza struggling…

Tomorrow we see a very very specialist for doggy eyes. We are trying to save his eyes and not have to have fake (implants) eyes put in. This is important to us (and him, he has some sight at times) and worth the issues involved…

You realize how much family a doggy is when something goes wrong with them and just like a human, we will do all we can to help him…

Right now the drops we are using are affecting him and making him sluggish. It hurts to see him this way and I get depressed at times when the old Boza is not around. Glaucoma is not a fun thing to deal with…

The doctor we are going to see has special laser surgery and such. He is a specialist in glaucoma, we are lucky to have such a doctor for doggies…

Update white lilacs…

Svetochka has pictures of the lilacs staying at her mothers. They are doing good and as soon as I get the images from her I will post them. They all lived and I find that a kinda miracle since they came from Europe by mail. The lady who sent them knows her stuff and Svetochka’s mother knows her stuff too…

Sveta is at a school (math college) reunion today, so I have to wait to get the images…

My tests and doctors…

All my blood work has come back in the normal range for everything tested. This is the first time in ten years and Svetochka and I are happy. My three month blood sugar readings were 5.7 mmol/l. Years ago it was 10+ and I have come a long ways. I work hard at keeping my diabetes under control and it is showing. I have fought this issue since I was 40 years old…

I have a few more things to check out. One of them is to have a CT Scan. I will have my head and neck done; time to make sure my brain tumor has not come back. 🙁 Headaches are daily now and my neck is almost partially locked up at times. I think that I have a collapsing neck vertebra, but lets make sure… Tired of a grating noise as I turn my head… Not to mention the 24 hour pain…

Life just keeps marching, even if we want everything to stop…

Life keeps going. You think it’ll stop, wait for you to be done crying, but it just keeps moving. Don’t spend your time looking back. You don’t want to miss what’s ahead.
