Please continue to pray for this sweet boy. Thanks

Austin Serrano has made a journal update:
Update on our Philly trip

Our exam under anesthesia went well in Philly for Austin. Austin eyes socket is really dry and we have to do better with eyes drop or ointment consistently. Austinís also saw an occularplastic surgeon who indicated that he will need some additional eye reconstructive surgery for his right eye, but not for another 2 yrs.

Dr. Shields was being philosophical with us, she said if Austin were her child, she would go get him some glasses that look good on his face, have it tinted lightly. It should help diminishes any imperfection and abnormal stare from other children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Leahey will have Dr. Zimmerman re-read Austin MRI, since there is still the enhancement and the growth behind the right eye, although it has been stable with every 3 months MRI. We would be more comfortable if it were read by an expert at retinoblastoma.

We are going to take Austin to Houston to see Dr. Gombos for an exam also. Dr. Gombos of all physicians has been Austin main physician and he is extremely thorough. We are in good hand with him and would like to know what he thinks about the right eye opening 24/7.

Other than that Austin prosthesis look great with the color, the only problem is the left one kept flipping sideway or upside down. We have a schedule appointment with Randy next Monday to get it adjusted.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
