If not, I will likely have surgery in the next few days to continue the attempt to restore my sight in that eye. While examining the left eye the doctor found 2-3 tears in the right retina. He did a laser procedure to fix this problem (hopefully). The cause is unknown as well as the prognosis on the left eye.

Continue to pray for me as I struggle with the doctor's orders concerning the sitting position necessary to promote healing. I have to keep my head tilted at a 80 degree angle to give the bubble a chance to do its magic. I continue to be positive concerning the outcome.
Healing Ohmmmmmmmms and prayers Steve. Hope everything turns out well for you.

All the best, Papaw! It's a terrifying time, I know, but you seem to be getting excellent care. I am sending prayers, good vibes, ommmms...all same, and many of 'em.

Thanx to my mutant friends. It is a scary time here in Hoosierland.

I can see light and some outlines this morning with my bad eye (left eye). That's really exciting progress. Still can't distinguish DW from a floor lamp yet so we need to temper the thrill. LOL

Sure is fun typing at a 90 degree angle. Will report as possible. Love you guys.
