Benny (and computer) news

Yesterday, Benny had a check up with the eye doctor. (You might remember that he has cataracts in both eyes and glaucoma in his right eye). The good news is that things are mostly stable. The bad news is the doctor found a cyst in his glaucoma eye. It is behind the iris just underneath the pupil. The doctor showed me where to find it, and it's in a place I would have never noticed.

It may be benign, but it may not be. Because of the size and location, there's nothing to be done except to wait and see. I will monitor it regularly.

The other bad news is that our desktop computer is out of commission. It's no longer able to connect to the Internet. We've had it looked at and tried a USB wifi stick, to no avail. This is frustrating because it's the machine I use to update the blog! I have several posts scheduled and will try to keep on posting as often as I can. I will soon be computer shopping. . . .

Edited to add:
I present to you, King Tucker!
Now this is more like it!

We're purring for Benny's eye, that it's benign!

Good luck re: the computer. If it has to be replaced, the holiday shopping season (i.e. deals) is a pretty good time to do it.

We're wishing and hoping the best for Benny. Buddy Bear, Ms Smokey and the boys send their love and purrs.

Luck with the computer. Leave Windows 8 alone. It's way different, too much new all at one time. I say stick with Windows 7.
