April 23, 2004

Good morning! Jacob's surgery went very well. As I explained earlier, Dr. Varenhorst first examined his eyes under anesthesia, and then made the decision to do surgery. He performed a Vitrectomy, the same procedure he did in March, removing scar tissue to help more of the retina re-attach. About 20% of the retina has attached- hopefully the percentage will increase following yesterday's surgery. As for the left eye, no decision was made. He would like to do as much as he can to the better eye first, and then decided about the left. I pray Jacob comes through all this with functional vision.

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and support. We wouldn't be able to get through all this without you.
