Thank you so much to everyone for your prayers. Dad's surgery went well and he is now headed to a full recovery. Please forgive me for not posting an update sooner, but our computer was down for several days.
The surgery was Tuesday morning at Northside hospital in Atlanta. The retina in Dad's right eye was 85% detached with 7 tears. This has been a learning experience for our entire family about science, the human eye and modern medicine.
At the post-op visit Wednesday the doctor said that the retina had completely reattached and that the gas bubble was already 55% gone. Praise the Lord!!!
It is always hard to see someone you love dearly go through pain, but Dad is an incurable optimist and always has a smile on his face. He told me the night before his surgery "Don't worry honey, the worst thing that can happen is that I will be the best one-eyed banker in Georgia."
Thank you again for your prayers. Through this entire process we have been blessed to have the prayers of so many of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
I have several posts planned for the coming week and look forward to getting back to blogging regularly.
Blessings to all...I mean "y'all"
