Best Day Ever.

I did a lot of waffling with this enucleation.  I really wanted to save Ryan’s eye.  But once he said he wanted it out, and then Dr. Shields said get it out, I figured we were making the right choice. And after the call we received from pathology today, I’m even more sure we did […]

Tough Guy

Ryan came home from his surgery on Monday and was groggy from the anesthesia. They’d dilated his other eye to do a thorough exam while he was under, so it was sensitive to the light.  He was super hungry, and wanted to eat.  He fell asleep a little early, but said he wasn’t in any […]
