Re: [FH] Hi everyone!
- I am so ssorry that this happened to Boo. I had never heard about this problem. I am simply amazed to read that reattachment is a possibility. I hope this is the case with your girl.

My name is Sandy and I joined this group to get information for my 3
year old baby, Boo. Monday of this week I had noticed that she was
acting scared to jump on or off the couch and bumping into things
around the house. I wasn't too alarmed then but Wednesday it seemed
worse. She was walking straight into furniture and walls. Other than
that everything else was perfectly normal. Her eating and litterbox
habits were normal, her daily activites were normal, I mean everything
seems fine with her other than the sudden blindness. I am a nurse so
when it dawned on me 'could she be blind' I examined her and sure
enough completely blind in both eyes. Her pupils are dilated and rarely
react to light. I took her to the vet yesterday and he examined her and
said that it looked like detatched retinas probably caused by
hypertension secondary to HCM. He wants to consult an opthamalogist
first. I am waiting for him to call me now. The waiting is killing me
though. She seems to be so healthy. Does anybody have any advice, or
