Assume the Position...

My brother, Glenn had a retina reattached today at the neurosensory surgery center at Texas Methodist Hospital . It was the gas bubble surgery where the bubble holds the repair in place if you hold your head in the correct position for about a week or so.

I had the same surgery a few years ago and my position was sitting up with my head turned to the side. Pictured is Glenn's position. Head down but not necessarily prone. 

We are in the hotel and must go back to the clinic in the morning to have the doc check the eye. I have offered to put the big screen TV we have in the room on the floor to make it a little easier to watch Monday might football. Glenn said that's ok, just take the bathroom mirror and put it on the floor so I can see the reflection. 

At least Glenn had an out patient procedure this morning. Texans coach Gary Kubiak, who collapsed at last night's game was in the same hospital and did not get to go home. The guy who pushed Glenn out in a wheel chair after his procedure described the local uproar over Kubiak's presence in the hospital as "a hot mess."
