I just realized that my post for October 9th came and went without receiving a single comment. That must have been a seriously boring day.

Blind dog Ray Charles went in for his eye surgery today. Unfortunately, it didn't go as planned. If you remember, Ray was completely blinded in one eye that had horrible Glaucoma, and was partially blind in the second eye. The surgery was to fix his eyelid on that eye to hopefully increase his very limited vision. The surgeon determined this morning that the Glaucoma had gotten too bad in the one eye, causing serious pressure equivalent to a permanent Migraine headache for Ray, and they had to remove it. Additionally, when they ran a retina scan this morning to see how much vision he had in the other eye, they realized he is already blind in that eye as well so they didn't perform the rest of the surgery. Now it will be even harder for Ray to get adopted. My friend, Dani, who has been fostering the dog called her husband to give him the news. Jon has become quite attached to little Ray Charles, and it looks like they will end up adopting him if no one else can take him. Raising Ray will be quite a challenge, and my heart goes out to her for taking him in.

On the up side, look what was on my doorstep when I got home! That's's all about ME.

The song of the day is "Plastic Jesus" by Billy Idol off his 2005 album Devil's Playground. However, the reason I know the song is because it was used in the 2005 film Crash and became part of what is an excellent soundtrack. If you haven't heard his version of the song, here it is:

Poor Ray, that's awesome that he will have a home no matter what happens.

That song is way sad.

Really sad to hear about Ray, but I'm sure he will get all of the love and attention he needs with his adopted parents.

Guess we won't be seeing much of you in public for a while now. Is it called Wii because that's the sound you make when you're playing it?

OMG I LOVE Wii. That is saying alot due to the fact that the last time I played a video game system was Nintendo 64.
