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 […]
