Well, for the past 2 weeks Santa has been unable to see out of his left eye. While bowling a couple of weeks ago his vision became blurry and then a black curtain appeared inside his field of vision preventing him from seeing anything below the top 1/4 of his field of vision.
We, naturally, went to the doctor 2 weeks ago to find out what the problem was and to get it corrected, but had to wait all this time because of the Plavix, Santa takes on a daily basis. The doctor said he had a detached retina and if it hadn't been for the Plavix he would have operated on Santa that very afternoon. So we had to wait
. . . and for the past two weeks his wonderful wife has been singing the Veggie Tales song, "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything". . . yeah, he loves it. LOL!!!
But this morning at 5:30 AM we trekked out to one of the WK hospitals here in Shreveport, Louisiana. Santa's doctor performed the procedure and when he was finished he said, "Perfect." Whoa!
God is good to us! Thanks to all of our friends and family who have been praying yesterday and today for the surgeon and for the healing process. Praise the Lord!
Now the fun begins. For the next 10 days Santa has to keep his head parallel to the floor in order to keep the gas bubble inside his eye pressed up against the repaired retina. This helps the retina reattach properly during the healing process. So if you pray, say a little prayer that Santa will be able to hang in there while waiting out this healing process. . . . and if you don't pray . . .God misses you.
