1st Eye Surgery Complete

Andrea was the first eye surgery with her surgeon Tuesday morning and we were home by 10 a.m. The surgeon removed the silicone oil and cleared the vitreous which is the clear jellylike substance between the retina and lens. He said the retina was back in place and unfolded. Andrea has 3 stitches which will dissolved on their own, so her eye will feel itchy or scratchy for a few days. The bandage will be removed tomorrow morning when we go to the doctor's office. We are already looking forward to the cataract surgery in 8 weeks.
A realization about health during this long period illness is that as you or your parents have health problems, please know that we are praying for you too. We know how much it means to us and we care about each of you too. Thank you for your faithful continued prayers.
Love to all,

I just wanted to thank you for this weekend. I had a great time with you and the Martins. I'm still amazed at what you have been through, and your ability to overcome. You are such a wonderful person, and a great friend. I will never stop praying for you and your family.

Dearest Andrea, My wife and I are praying for your vision. I am asking OUR Father to heal you completely. That has been my prayer from the beginning and the Lord answers prayers.

God Bless!!

Your Brother in Christ!
