Walt has cherry eyes. Poor guy.

I'd never heard of this. Guess nursing school doesn't teach you everything. Yet nursing students think they know everything. Side rant. 

For those curious, cherry eye is the prolapse of a tear-producing gland. Surgery is usually required to either remove or tack them in to place.

I spent the first month that these babies appeared applying daily drops (which was a dramatic ordeal) and massaging them back in to place every night before bed. Just to be disappointed when they reappeared the next morning. 

For now, we live with the cherries.

At least until he gets neutered in a few short weeks. 

Which I'm dreading. He probably would be as well, but we haven't told him yet.
