Melanie’s brain and eyes

We are waiting for her MRI and CT scans to come in. They were taken a while ago when she had this weird infection around her eyes.

The scans show some abnormality in her brain and the consultants are not entirely sure what that means. Some think that they are sign of leukaemia cells. Not to take any chances, they add additional chemo injections through the spine.

They also suggest radiotherapy on the head after the chemo treatments are over.

In the mean time, Melanie complains about her eyes. We call the eye doctor. After a series of examinations, the eye doctor tells us that her right eye will not see perfectly.

I am overwhelmed with the result but I try to convince myself that it is ok if this is the only negative outcome she are going to have as a result of the treatments.
