Well, we appreciate all your thoughts and prayers during the first few days of 2013. Santa's eye surgery was a success according to the doctor. His retina was repaired and a gas bubble was placed inside the eye to hold the retina in place as it healed. While in the first 10 days Santa had to keep his head parallel to the ground in order to keep the gas bubble in the correct position so the retina could heal properly.
This required a chair (which was later called the "torture device") and a device that was used in bed while sleeping. Santa had to lie face down while sleeping and for most of the 10 day period.
Friday we went to the doctor for the first checkup and he said everything was healing well. However, Santa is still unable to see out of the his left eye. Due to the gas bubble blocking his view. The doctor told us it would be 3 more weeks before the gas bubble would disappear completely. After that, another procedure will have to be performed on the cataract in Santa's left eye. Hopefully, the recovery time for that procedure will be a lot quicker.
We are especially grateful to God that we were able to have this wonderful medical technology available to us and to the wonderful medical staff in which we trusted Santa's sight.
If you pray . . .please continue to pray for his regained sight and patience during this very difficult month. If you don't pray . . . God misses you.
We will leave you with a little video.
