The end is near

First I would like to thank everyone that has stood by us through this whole ordeal.

Over the past couple days I've noticed Luke's eye being lazier and lazier and i knew that wasn't a good sign. So i told my wife yesterday that this EUA wasn't going to be that good.

I hate when I'm right.

I went in with full knowledge that this would be the one where they told us it was all for nothing and that Luke's eye had to come out. It gave me a chance to prepare for what the next steps are.

The doctor came in and told us that the tumor in his left eye has gotten bigger and also the seeding has gotten worse. Meaning that none of the treatment for the last couple months has been doing any good.

We had decided a while ago that we wouldn't put Luke through anymore chemo. for all the good it might be doing it was by far doing more damage to him mentally then what ever good it might have been doing physically. Also for such a small child to be having that much chemo....... how good can it be to poison the body that much?

next steps.

sometime in the next 2 weeks we will go in and have his eye removed. what happens from there were not to sure details at the moment are kinda sketchy.

NO i can't bring the eye home. I asked.
will keep you all posted as i know you will know.
