After a busy last week, Delaney is enjoying herself and time with the family. Delaney had an eye appointment and an echocardiogram for her heat. As for her eye appointment, it went very well. Delaney has been able to maintain full and equal vision in both eyes. A huge relief and much to be thankful for. There is now serious talk and communication between Delaney's neurosurgery team and neuro oncologist of a possible eye operation this May to straighten and correct her eye. Due to the inward eye drift or strabismus, she constantly sees double vision. Furthermore she continues to fight off styes, in both eyes, and is now on oral medication 2x per day and topical medication 3x per day. This is in hopes to clear up the styes within 5 weeks so she can proceed with the eye operation. If the styes are present, there cannot be an operation. Now on to the echocardiogram. This is the fourth echocardiogram Delaney has had, but the first one with out her Broviac or central line in place. Before it was recently removed it was hard to get a full, clear, unobstructed view of the function of her heart. With all of the chemotherapy she had received via the Broviac, it was delivered directly to her heart and dispersed throughout her body. After 1 year post treatment of chemotherapy Mommy and Daddy received a call from the Pediatric Cardiologist who read the results of her echocardiogram. It was wonderful news, news that her heart is functioning normal, with no side effects. Again we could not be more thankful and blessed. Lastly Delaney's full brain and spine MRI is set for March 10th, at 8am. But as that day full of stress and anxiety closes in, Delaney is filling her days with smiles, silly antics around the house, small outings, and having fun modeling her new clothes, shoes, and socks. Helping Mommy and Daddy hide the ugly ball of emotions that at times overwhelm them. We thank each one of you who have, and continue to support Delaney in her story and in her road to full recovery. Thank you. Thank you for all the prayers, love, and support. As always....... GO TEAM DELANEY!!!!
