The big praise of the day is that Kerry has made it through the first hurdle toward regaining her eyesight. The doctors were able to remove the cataract from her right eye. The cataract, which was quite dense, took longer to remove than is typically required. "Plan A" also involved the implantation of a lense and artificial iris into her eye; however, certain complications prevented the latter of these from being accomplished. Thus, the doctors involked "plan B," which involved only the removal of the cataract and a temporary lens implantation. Kerry will be going back Wednesday, the 21st for a post operative visit.
Kerry is recovering quite well from this first surgery. Thank you all very much for your love and prayers. You are a blessing to the Philpot family!
