Holding Steady

Beck had his semi-annual appointment with the retinal specialist today.

On Emma's, Nathan's and Annika's imaging, there's this big spot in the back of their eye.  In the middle of that is a white blip where their retinal is pulling away from the back of their eye.

Beck has no fluid under his retina--no white blip.  But he has that big spot.  This is why we're watching him.

Technically, his retina had an increase in thickness of two micrograms.  This is a very insignificant amount.

"It could be," Dr. Two told me, "just the difference in how well he was holding still between last time and this time."

So we've been cleared for six more months. But looking at his scans I feel quite sure that it's just a matter of time....
