Ben Ponder had to have an emergency surgery, Friday January 3rd, to repair a torn retina that evolved into a partial retina detachment. He had to have what is called “vitrectomy surgery” in order to repair the tear and reattach the retina.
Please pray that he will not get any infection as the doctor wants the patch off during the day. They say complete healing (as for getting your vision back) can take 5-6 weeks and even as long as a year to be 100% healed from the tear/detachment. Please pray for his sight to be fully restored. Cards may be sent to him at 1441 Lane Creek Drive, Bishop, GA 30622.
Lisa Washington has a medical procedure tomorrow to help diagnose what is going on with her health. Please pray for definitive answers and a healing treatment plan. Cards may be sent to her at 1888 Great Shoals Circle, Lawrenceville, GA 30045.
