    Teele

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Thagryn-Sylrand, Jan 13, 2009.

    Hey guys,

    Some of you know that I'm Teeles stepbrother. Anyways he's just gone through eye surgery and I don't think he would be able to be on the forums for a couple of weeks.

    Surgery sucks. Always. Good luck to Teele and hope it isn't too much of a pain.

    Yeah,

    He has to lay on his stomach for two weeks so the eye fluid gets to the front of his eye.

    My friend shot a 3/4 inch staple into his eye and had to lay for several weeks like that to keep an air bubble the doctors had injected in his eye in the right spot. Supposedly, it pressed on the damaged area and kept a bad scar from developing.

    The bubble was reabsorbed after several months.


    Hope your getting well buddy. You'll be missed.

    That's probably what it was because he did get a bubble of air put into his eye, wasn't sure of the specifics.

    Since he has to lay on his belly, I bet he has a retina tear or hole on the back of his eye. A detached retina is a B**ch. My wife has the start of one that they're keeping an eye on.

    The bubble holds the retina against the wall of the eye; kinda like gluing, then holding two pieces of paper while the glue sets up.

    Hmm, well I always hated getting anything in my eye so I couldn't imagine getting surgery on it. I haven't been a member here for long, but he approved for my RP and I appreciate that. I hope he gets better.:)

    I know I already said it but I miss Teele terribly, he's in my prayers, and I'll do my best to keep the RP's healthy till he returns to his rightful place.

    Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!

    I agree. He's a BIG presence on the RP forum. Let's make sure there still IS one when he comes back.

    Get posting, people!

    Good news

    Where the detached retina was, he has to lay on his side for the bubble to be in the right place. So I think he might be on the forums soon. He's going home tommorow so he might go on but it will probably be limited. I haven't talked to him since it happened so if he goes on he can tell you guys more.

    That's great news!

    Teele is very committed to the RPG's so I can absolutely visualize him laying on his couch with his computer in the floor in front of him tapping away. :p

    Hope to see you soon Teele.

    Teele Update

    Teele has an appointment on the 27th to have his eye checked.

    The first five days after surgery he could do nothing for 90% of the time but lie down to keep his head in a certain position. From now until the checkup he'll mostly be doing more of the same.

    He really misses WF and all of his friends here and can't wait to get back!

    Weeeell, hi there everybody! And thank you very much for the well-wishes and for your many compliments!

    As has been deduced, yes, I underwent surgery for a retinal detachment. I'm working on a ridiculously long blog entry describing the whole affair, and I hope to have that up today.

    Thanks to everyone for your prayers and concerns! I'm just popping on right now to say hi, and recovery is going well...even if it is very boring. I'll know for sure if I can come back full-time on Tuesday, after my appointment. The eye is looking better every day, so I'm hoping for some good news. :)

    Anyone who knows me knows that I've missed the forums incredibly, and I've missed participating in the games. You can bet that I'll be returning as soon as I am physically able!

    Thanks again, guys!
