Wordless Wednesday - Face Down Recovery



If you've been reading my blog, you know that my oldest son had to have surgery last week for a detatched and torn retina. For his recovery, he has to remain in a face-down position, pretty much 24-7, for fourteen days. Here he is in the special medical chair that we rented. (The headphones he's wearing are for his XBox-Live; he's sitting in the chair playing video games in this pic. And, he can only see out of one eye right now.)

Oh my. I'm so sorry he has to go through that. At least it seems as if he will make a full recovery. Thinking of you all....

Oh Man! I haven't been by so I didn't know about this ... I can't even imagine how scary that was for all of you. And what a difficult recovery. I don't know how he is standing it ... I guess the fear of not healing is good motivation. I'm sending you and him best wishes for a complete recovery.
