Ladies, thanks so much for all your prayers and thoughts.   Some really good news it that my liver is clear of any cancer cells.  Will have to decide what type of radiation to do to preserve more of the vision.   Right now leaning towards the suggestion of a Mayo Clinic - Univ. of Fla. Shands joint effort for Proton beam surgery.  DH just got off the phone with original Retina Dr. who sent me to Mayo.  The Dr. says to consider the age of the machine, the one here is only 5 years old.
He has calmed my fears very much.  The less vision loss the better, as we quilters would agree.
If I choose that option the "comfort" factor is involved, I can come to my own home each day, snuggle with my own 4 legged childeren with fur, etc.
Sorry if this is a snooze for others, but it's my life and vision we are talking about.
Mom is still the same, bless her heart, she is in her own little world.
Going to watch some American college football and zone out.
Sara in Fla.

No snooze here. After years of this board I feel connected to all and care about their lives. Sounds like you are making decisions that are best for you. Prayers will continue as you proceed through this phase.

Thanks Laura, liver scan came back clean! Whoo-hoo! Today I'm hustling between the proton beam place at Un. Fla. Jacksonville, and Mayo clinic for pre-op, blood wook, paperwork, etc.
