We have just heard from Simon who has returned home, exhausted and in pain. They told him the op. would normally be 20 minutes but his would be longer. Well, it was over 90 minutes during which Simon heard (courtesy of local inaesthetic) of several complications which needed the supervising prof's intervention. The prof commented to his surgical team that it had been very tricky. We are not surprised with all the complications along the way.
He was told nothing positive but when he returns to hospital in 3 weeks time they will examine him again. I guess they cannot really tell for a while and probably have to scan the eye to establish how much bleeding was hidden behind the cataract. So, we continue in prayer.
Thanks for reading this personal post from an anxious parent.
