SJAS Posted December 11, 2004 Share Posted December 11, 2004 What a week this has been. We are still waiting for the results from the retinal angiogram to see what, if anything can be done to save Steve's vision. The good news though is that, thanks to Dr. Joe, Steve was sent for an emergency brain and orbital scan to rule out a possible cavernous sinus thrombosis (you don't even want to read the description on that one!), and it came back that he doesn't have it. Thank goodness for Dr. Joe - Steve fit the profile almost perfectly and if he had it, it would have required immediate treatment. (The docs here really sat up and took notice on that one!) Sooo, we still don't know about the vision, but hopefully will hear soon. The sorrows: A student I work with told me his 27-year-old cousin, married just 4 months ago, has metastatic lung cancer. A new nurse in the doctor's office today told me she lost her 14-year-old daughter to lung cancer shortly after 9/11. A young mother in our church who recently celebrated 5 cancer-free years, just found out that her melanoma has returned and is throughout her entire body. Feels like cancer is surrounding us at every step of the way! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
