Celebrate | Smaller

At a routine eye exam in 2014, a spot was noticed on Jim's eye. For two years, we have traveled to Dr. Lakosha in Halifax every six months. We are thankful for his excellent care and that he sent Jim to Toronto's Princess Margaret for a second opinion. It was ocular melanoma and Jim went through surgery in October.

On Tuesday, we traveled to Halifax again. We were told it can take up to a year to see any changes after radiation. In February, which was three months after the eye plaque surgery in Toronto, the tumor size was the same. We received even better news this week! The tumor is smaller! Originally, it was 4.3 mm and it is now 3.4. Jim was also told there is no sign of radiation damage on the eye. We are beyond grateful!

Thank You, God, for taking care of Jim.

See you in six months, Halifax!
