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.

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.
My thoughts and best wishes to you for the best possible outcome, Steve.

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.

Best wishes Steve! I am so pleased and thankful that medical science has been able to do what they canfor you. It was not all that long ago that such procedures were yet to be created.
Just catching up here. Moved to Yuma yesterday.
You and MaryAnne are in our prayers!

Steve, you be very very careful on which one you try to turn on. We do not need any other serious effects posted.

Get well.

Small world encounter: While Martin was calling ahead to make our reservation for tonight, the clerk looking up our KOA number said, "You're from Sidney, IL." "Yes." "I'm from Mahomet." Mahomet is 30 miles or so away from our S & B, and I've done some work in the schools there.

Where in Yuma, please? Our stay in Yuma a few years ago was on the edge of town (ok), but in a very urban park (not so ok). I've heard the foothills area recommended, but haven't seen it. Martin needs his satellites and I need some space and wildness.

Wow, our thoughts and healing Ohms go out to you at this trying time. Hang in there, do as you're told and heal.

Do as he's told? I'm sure he's trying, but maybe we ought to ask Mary Ann how that works out. 😇 How trying are you, Steve?

Continued ommms!

Oh my gosh. You guys are really a stitch. Laughter is a good medicine.

Mary Ann is amused by how well some of you seem to know me. I am the perfect, compliant patient. Would you expect anything less?

Keeping my head cocked to the right is a PITA. No comment Wayne. You STM.
