The "Eyes" Have It

KK has completed 6 IV Vitamin C treatments. I want to keep track of her progress as seen through my eyes...

When I spoke with KK's medical team at Dana Farber, I told them that one of the things I will be watching closely is KK's eyes. I knew something wasn't right in the days leading up to the MRI when KK's eyes weren't tracking well. Though I didn't know it was due to tumor growth at the time, I also knew something was off when we were at Disney and she kept bumping into things on her right side.

After the second IVC treatment, KK's eyes seemed to be tracking better, though one was wider than the other (it looked like one eye was "bugging out"). Today, her eyes are just about even and are tracking well. Through my own crude examination, I believe her peripheral vision has improved slightly as well.

At dinner tonight, I was watching KK use a knife to slide the last of her salad on the fork. I was struck at how steady her right hand was. I pointed it out to my parents and asked, "Am I just making this up?" They agreed that her right hand looked much better.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. 
~ Psalm 121
