Great news, the labs from today look great!! Once again, no active multipe myeloma! Thank you for your prayers and thoughts, Keep Pounding Rob team!!😊👍😊👍
Now for the slight detour:
Today at Rob’s monthly infusion, Rob began having trouble seeing out of his right eye. It came on fast, and he could not tell you how many fingers you held up, and then couldn’t tell you the color of your hair. Right now, he can’t see you wave at him standing a foot away.
After consulting with the hematologist, we were worked into the ophthalmologist office. We learned that Rob had an eye bleed, causing Rob to not see out of his right eye. The good news is that there is no damage to the optic nerve.
They think the blood should drain within 48 hours, and then his vision should return. Rob will then see a retina specialist.
He doesn’t think it is multiple myeloma related, thankfully!
He did mention wanting Rob off of the daily aspirin that he is on (to prevent blood clots caused by the chemo), but also understands this might not be possible. We’ll know more on that next week.
Hopefully, this is a minor issue that comes with age and nothing else. We will know more Wednesday, and post an update then.
Thank you for the continued prayers and thoughts, Keep Pounding Rob team!!
