Elijah had his exam this morning and there were no new tumors!
There was, however, still some "meat" to the tumor that is in his central field of vision. They treated it with laser today, and thought they might possibly use the green dye. They did not end up needing to use the dye.
We will return in 4 weeks, at which time we will look at options depending on how this tumor responds to the laser treatment done today. We may reconsider more intra-arterial chemo, or treat again with laser.
The big concern is not the size of the tumor, but it's location. It is a "tug of war", trying to balance treatment of the cancer with saving his vision. We "aren't losing the battle", but we aren't really winning either. We could cure him right at this time, but it would be at the expense of his vision. So instead, we will continue to tug, and fight to maintain vision! :-)
We also have an appointment with the genetics department this afternoon so that Ben and I can do our genetic testing to look for the mutation that Elijah has.
Thank you all for praying!
