As Sootie mentioned yesterday, Tommy pir8fan had an appointment with his doctor this morning. It turns out that the disc which had been placed in his eye was causing damage to the surface of his eye......the surface has scar tissue (from previous procedures I presume) and the disc was rubbing on that. (Or that is my interpretation of what was happening.) So, they took the disc out. It is still very painful but, he is hoping that NOW "the healing can begin"! So, faithful friends - keep the prayers and good thoughts going his way! Thanks!
