This morning we headed back to the doctor to have him check Todd's eye. He still can't see where he repaired the retina as the eye is in the process of healing. Since Todd has to keep his head down all day and night long, this is helping the gas bubble stay where it needs to facilitate healing.
When the doctor looked in Todd's eye this morning, he said that he could tell that Todd has been keeping his head down as the blood was pooled in the bottom of the eye. Only 2 more days to go before Todd can lift his head again. I know it doesn't seem like that long but when you are uncomfortable it can seem like an eternity.
He will go back for another check on Friday. Hopefully there will be enough healing for the doctor to see if the surgery was successful or not. He has every reason to believe that it will be. His eye pressure was a bit elevated on Saturday morning but it was back in the normal range today. That's also good news.
I know Todd will just be happy when he can lift his head up again. It's going to take some time to heal and he won't be able to lay on his back but lying on his side will be better than his stomach!!!
