One of the drawbacks to having eyes that bug out like VW headlights is that one gets cracked from time to time.
Mister Boo, who suffers from a lens luxation in the right eye, from time to time manages to exacerbate the problem by bumping into something. Author-poet Jim Harrison, who is likewise blind on one side, has mentioned having similar navigational issues.
Anyway, the poor little guy (Boo, not Jim) did it again on Wednesday, and his eye specialist has prescribed a fresh round of medications. So until next Wednesday at least he gets:
• One drop of dorzolamide in both eyes twice daily.
• One capsule of minocycline daily.
• A half tab of carprofen twice daily.
• One drop of ofloxacin in the right eye thrice daily.
• And one drop of NaCl solution in the right eye thrice daily.
Mind you, this is in addition to the walks (administered twice daily); meals (twice daily); and treats (as needed, which is to say every 15 minutes until he’s full, and then every 30 minutes thereafter). Plus, I anticipate that on his next visit to the eyeball doc the Boo will be prescribed a patch, a peg leg and a parrot. Then we’ll have to call him Cap’n Boo. Arrr.
There has to be some way to blame Obama for this.
