About the Campaign
She might look familiar, Marisa has asked for help before. This cat needed help in April of this year for testing on her head tilt. She needed to see a cardiologist for her “stroke”. Quick recap: One day Edward was on his way out of the house when he noticed Marisa’s head was tilted to the side and she wasn’t acting normal. Marisa goes to the doctor and was given a shot of steroids to help with the head tilt and that has gone away. Here is her previous campaign link: http://freeanimaldoctor.org/campaigns/marisa/
Marisa still has vision loss.
Since then Edward has taken Marisa to many specialist. Neurologist was the first stop… here they said Marisa had an abnormal heart rate. Neurologist sent her to a cardiologist where she had an ultrasound on her heart, tests came back normal. Lastly, the ophthalmologist came in.
The ophthalmologist believes there is pressure in Maria’s brain causing her to have a detached retinas and not being able to see. The next step is an MRI with the neurologist to see what is causing the pressure. The suspected diagnosis is glaucoma. WebMD states “Glaucoma is the increased pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to your brain. If the damage continues, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. Without treatment, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years.”
