For those that asked,
this is a picture of how it was found. This picture is from O's birthday party at the end of March.
O had her surgery today and the central line put in so she can start her Chemo on Monday. They will stay in Toronto for 2 weeks following that to be sure that she isn't going to have a bad reaction to it. One of the side effects of this treatments is hearing loss, so they will be keeping a very close watch on her. Good news...her other eye is clear and no signs of a tumor at all. We can only hope that it stays that way. I think some people thought I was crazy when I heard about the chemo/radiation (it hadn't been decided yet) and the effect it would have on her fertility. I have such a twisted mind.....
The update for today
Baby O will have a very hard day tomorrow. They will be doing more tests one of which is a digital test on her ears because one of the side effects of chemo could be a loss of hearing and they want to see just how good her ears are now. Also they are going to do a test on her kidneys as well, (with the dye) to see if they are in good working order so they can determine that her kidneys will be able to handle the chemo and expell it out of her body OK. It is sounding like O and her mom will be in Toronto until the beginning of June. Things seem to change so much from day to day......
I can only say that I am grateful(if that's possible) that O is so young and won't remember most of this.....
My dad and step mom are still in Toronto with them, still in the same hotel room. It has been one week today since they flew from here. It sounds like the folks are going to have a weekend away. It's got to be tough enough with what is going on and then to be 4 adults and O in one hotel room. Apparantly they have found a play room in the hotel so maybe that will help pass the time. They hope to get into Ronald McDonald house soon.
My brother in law is going to Toronto on business early next week. We are thinking about putting together a care package to send to the hotel with snacks, books etc....any ideas????
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers
