Athos recovering from eye surgery

This just in from Lady Athos regarding Athos' surgery to repair a detached retina:

Figured this was the best way to let you know that Athos' eye surgery went well. We saw the surgeon this morning. Patch came off. Attachment is 100%, gas bubble 100%, & pressure good.

Last night was rough. He couldn't have anything besides Tylenol for pain since they didn't want to risk nausea. Remaining face-down for 4 days when awake and laying on left side for sleep for 7 days doesn't leave him much chance for computer even if he had two good eyes right now.

All of us continue to lift you and Lady Athos up in our prayers.
