Kevin is home from surgery

Hey Gang

We are finally home from surgery - this was a long day indeed.

The doctor seems to think it went well and his retina will attach normally. We will know more when we see him tomorrow.

Now comes the worst part - recovery.

I'm not sure if Kevin mentioned this is in his post but this is the other eye - so that makes to detached retinas on two eyes. He doesn't see well out of the first one so he is not going to be able to do much for a long time.

Thanks for all your prayers and pixie dust. They are appreciated and I know affective. Keep 'em coming - we'll need more for the recovery period.

Best wishes, Kevin and nurse John. I hope that your Kindle can keep you company and make the time pass by reading you some good books. You're in my prayers and I hope that your recovery is quicker for this eye than the last. <pixie dust for you!>
