Thank you everyone for your support.. yes, I know I am so very lucky to have been blessed with her this long and hope to see her make it to her 12th birthday as well. I know her time is not here yet.. and I know in my heart I will know when it is.. we are just trying to help her cope as best we can. She has actually mastered the blindness quite well, using her memory of the paths to take in the house. It's us humans that have to remember not to rearrange anything as to mess her up. We actually see the vet later this week to address the pain issue as I want to make sure she has sufficient medications to keep her from pain. She actually still has times that she can jump onto the couch on her own, those times are definitely fewer and farther between but I think it is part of her stubborn bully personality that gets her there. And I will carry her outside however many times I need to.. she has been there for me I will be here for her. I have yet to meet anyone else with one the age of mine and hope to someday.. it would be nice to compare notes . I love seeing everyone's pictures on here.. so many beautiful bullies. Here is a pic of my Bessie and her buddy.. my son's kitten.
