It's always something else!!

Saw the opthalmologist/retina specialist today.  My vision is the same as it was 3 months ago.  However, apparently, a new "growth" has appeared on the iris of my right eye.  This wasn't visible at my last visit.  After several dozen pictures, IV contrast dye and more pictures, she told me that she would consult with others to determine next steps.  She contacted my brain/radiation oncologist to have additional views added to my scheduled MRI next week.  Then, a possible biopsy of the growth will be done on Wednesday.  Using the pictures, MRI and biopsy, the doctors will determine an appropriate approach.  So...I will wait & see what comes next.
