I went to the eye doctor yesterday, and again they did more tests. I hate when they probe into my eyes, especially with the bright lights. Their opinion is most likely it's residual damage from radiation treatments. At this time the effect on my vision does not warrant any treatment. I will be reassessed in 3 months.
Tomorrow, I will see my Oncologist. I will update you on that visit in the next couple of days.

I can't believe it's already February. I've been feeling pretty good other than the stomach aches. They are usually a warning sign that I will be getting sick soon. I saw my oncologist and things look good. My headaches could be caused from the herniated disc at the top my spine.
I went to my optometrist to upgrade my glasses. She did a bunch of tests on my eyes and found my left eye to have some abnormal shadows. I have an appointment next week to see a specialist. There's a round circle behind the cornea and a bunch a little shadows scattered around near the nerves. I talked to my aunt and was told my uncle actually just had surgery on his eye for cancer. The surgery went well other than leaving his eyelid limp. He had to go back and have surgery on the eye lid. He's doing good. I think what they are looking for on me is either cancer or diabetes. I will keep you informed.
Jack and I are dealing with colds today. Jack is so funny, he hates his nose running and having to keep blowing it. He wadded up some tissue, put it up to his nose and taped it on his face. I wish I had a camera, he looks so silly. Unfortunately, I think I got my cold front him. He would sneakingly slide into bed next to me at night.
We are looking forward to next weekend where we will be up north visiting my parents. I have signed up for the relay of life. I will be walking for cancer in June. If anybody wants to sponsor me or join the team, you can go to relay for life.com caring for Cathy. I'm pretty sure this is what you need to do. If not, let me know.
Well I need to go check on my little man. I will keep you updated on my condition. Again, I would like to thank everyone for the prayers. I appreciate everything and take nothing for granted. Nikki Nolte thank you for calling me every day and checking up on me. You are a great friend and I cherish our friendship. Jen Klick, thank you for being such a good friend. I like getting together with you and doing crafts. I just wish we lived closer. All right again soon, thanks again everybody. Love, Cathy
