Alan's surgery went very well. He is doing fine. He has to take it easy for 2 weeks and then he can return to normal life. The pressure in his eye is down and that is a good sign. Thanks for all of your prayers.
The Casey Eye Institute is in Portland just below the OSHU Hospital. It situated in a really neat way. Since the OSHU is a teaching hospital and there are many employees and students they decided that they needed a better way to get to both since the road leading to them is really on a curvey and mountain. They put in a tram that goes down the hill from Casey Eye Institute to OSHU. It crosses the freeway and it is really a neat thing running every 10 minutes. This idea is great for saving on gas for everyone. I took some pictures of it.
