As some of you may know, I gots the diabetes in January. One of the things that can happen when you get it is that there is a possibility that you could go blind.
Well, dawgs and kittehs...
That's just what happened to me last weekend!
All of a sudden, I was walking into walls and buildings, tripping over curbs and just generally banging my nose on a whole bunch of stuffs!
The first few days were kind of scary and I kept walking in circles because I always think I know better than mom.
Now that I've been blind for a week, things are getting better. I still like to sit at the edge of the sidewalk but instead of watching the world go by, I sit and listen. I'm learning that when mom says, "watch out!" I need to change course a bit or I'll bang into something. Mom is always looking out for me and telling me when to stop, step up, step down or watch out.
At first I thought I would need to send her for some Guide Human training but she's really stepping up and turning into a great Seeing Eye Human for me!
One of her friends from work gave her a stroller for me but I've told mom that I'm not ready for that just yet!
Chico Kitteh doesn't seem to mind when I accidently step on him and Daisy doesn't smack me as much.
Pippen of course is taking full advantage of my disability and stealing my bed but I can always find the other one or mom picks me up and puts me on the chaise.
So, as always, things could be better but they could be a whole lot worse!
