March 31, 2011

It's amazing how quickly things are turning around.  Casey is doing great.  His blood counts are better than they have been in years.  He is back at work and was at Virginia Tech this past weekend coaching sectionals.  On Monday he has an appointment with his opthamologist (Dr. Neely) and on Wednesday he sees his oncologist.  During his hospital stay, his eyes were pools of blood again, but Casey kept assuring the hospital staff that Dr. Neely will take care of it (this was happening while he was hallucinating). I think he thought she was in the room with him, along with a bunch of kids who kept making a lot of noise, swimmers, Aunt Debbie's little friends and a helicopter.  His room was quite full.  Last time we went to see Dr. Neely, Casey got out of there without having any procedures done and his eyes looked better than they had in years. He didn't have to go back for 6 months.  (Casey has had a vitrectomy and surgery for a detached retina, along with several laser treatments.)  I am going into the appointment very optimistic.
Next week we have 2 great check-ups to look forward to.  I will keep you posted.
