Sky's surgery

What a day we had yesterday! Sky had to go down fasting which didn't make him happy at all!! We arrived at the clinic at 11:00 am and waited and waited and WAITED! He finally went in to be prepped at 1:30 and went in for surgery at 2:30. Then Dave and I waited and waited and WAITED till 5:00. Finally, Dr. Graff came out and told us that the initial hit to the eye actually did more damage than they first thought. Skyler now has an oil bubble, buckle, and fixed tears in his eye. The oil bubble will be in for 6-8 weeks. The dr. also said that the blow to his eye caused his lens to shift. So that will probably cause a cataract. When we finally got out of the clinic, we went to get something to eat and then went to Walgreens to get his prescriptions. By that time it was 8:00 pm, he had also developed a migraine besides having his eye hurting. So we decided to stay the night, and thought that would be better for Sky to not have to be cramped up in the little car. He didn't sleep well, but coming home he slept more.
Sky had a checkup with Dr. Blair in Show Low today, he had taken a Vicadine without eating, the nurse put a drop in his eye to check his eye pressure. Since he hadn't eaten he got really dizzy, he freaked out the nurse to say the least! They gave him some juice and granola bar. He was fine and Dr. Blair says everything looks great. He is optimistic that Skyler will be able to play next year with protective eyewear, of course.
He will be out of school till at least Tuesday or Wednesday, which really worries Sky because of missed assignments from his classes. I'm sure his teachers will understand.
Thanks to all for the thoughts and prayers, they were felt!!

Ditto to Kandra's comments. He is so tough, just like you and a great patient. We're praying all will go well with him.l

I'm so glad that his eye is going to be ok. Kind of crappy to have to go through all that, but at least it will all be ok in the end. Love you guys!
