    Your in excellent hands so saying good luck is silly
    but good luck.

    I recieved post care instructions with my friends as I was minding him for the night before the follow up
    was told a lot of things including making him sleep on one side and not roll over.
    I wondered how in hell I could stop him rolling over and well a flash of insight BIG BROOM HANDLE!

    I hope I will never have need to use this information, but please let us know how far in does it have to go?

According to my opthomolagist this guy is the best in the city so fingers crossed ...... At least no more contorted body position between now and then . Thank Gawd ! .......

    your doing well technology for detached retinas has obviously improved, 30 yrs ago I had a buddy who spent 4-6 weeks flat on his back for that.

    Surgery done yesterday .... Many thanks to the woman in the next bed for having breakfast and horrifying the anesthesia guy as it bumped me up into her spot so only a three hour wait instead of four ..... Went for inspection today and doctor says all looks good though I still can't see a damn thing out of it ..... Doc says vision should return over two weeks ....... Fingers crossed ......
