Demetrios' Surgery Rescheduled for Tomorrow

Demetrios went to his ophthalmologist, feeling suspicious about his left eye, which from time to time since Saturday has been gettling blurry. 

Sure enough, it was related to his blocked carotid artery:  the retina isn't getting enough blood.  Without enough blood, the retina is in danger of dying, and sooner, not later.  Or if it does't die, it may still become permanently damaged.

This makes an emergency, so the surgery is to be tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, in hopes of saving the eye.

They plan to keep Demetrios overnight and discharge him Wednesday morning. 

We are very, very glad for your prayers.
