This year we almost didn’t get to go on our Northwood’s trek.
In July Jim was diagnosed with Melanoma in his left eye. We went
for a 2nd opinion with the eye specialists at Dean McGee Eye Clinic.
Dr. Reagan Bradford told us to go try to have a good time and when we got
back, they would fix me up. When we got back from Northwood’s, I had an
appt with Dr. Leonard and Dr. Guess. I checked in to Presbyterian Towers
Hospital on the OU medical complex here
in Oklahoma City.
At 6 AM on August 31 I had Brachy therapy surgery to insert a radiation patch on
my eye. After 5 days confined to my hospital room, I had yet another
surgery to take the radiation patch out of my eye.
I was ready to get home. It was like getting out of jail.
Now that I can see again, I am able to finish this web page. On
Sept. 17th we went in for my 2 week checkup. The doctor said it looks text
book. He said I had enough radiation to
do the trick. He wants to see me in 3 months. Laurie and I went out
to supper and attended a play before going home. I slept like a rock.
Laurie didn't even walk in her sleep,
which is a great change from before the Sept 17 appointment. I would like
to say thank you to all our good friends that called, sent e-mails and came by
to visit me in the hospital.
