Over time Rocky's ulcers got worse, but her vision was still there. One day, Rocky bumped her eye on the branch of a plant, and only days later, her ulcer became infected. Days after that, her cornea ruptured. Rocky had to have emergency surgery, and after that she was completely blind.
"Rocky took a long time to adjust. The first month or two was really hard for her," Kelly said. "She cried constantly and panted from anxiety."
But, just like everything else, Rocky soon overcame her anxiety, and tackled her blindness head on.
