Dr. Hinkle stopped in to take a look at Ryan’s eyes this afternoon. Although it can not be conclusive, given the home environment of the examination, he feels Ryan’s eyes are improving somewhat.
Dr. Hinkle uses a stain that he places in the eyes. Any dry/damaged areas will pick-up this stain and glow brightly under this blue light he has. The right eye had very little. The left eye picked-up some stain over the cornea, but not nearly as badly as before.
It appears the course of treatment might be working, although it could take months to know for sure. As Dr. Hinkle explained, sometimes the signs lag the symptoms… or something like that. Hey, it made sense at the time to me. It’s like algebra, you understand it for a minute and the poof, it’s gone.
Again — disclaimer — this is my interpretation. It might be entirely wrong.
As for the urine culture. It is just in to Dr. Rodriguez’s office, but he needs to review them before relaying to me. I will post when I know more.
