Conservative icon Rep. Dan Crenshaw just gave the nation an update on his extremely risky eye surgery.
“Last week, I had my follow-up visit with my surgeon, which went very well,” said Crenshaw.
“To our relief, my retina was still in place during my follow-up appointment. I can lift my head up again and no longer have to position myself face-down, which is a relief. This is obviously good news, but it doesn’t mean we are out of the woods yet,” said the statement released by the Texas congressman.
“I still cannot see much other than lights and shadows, basically, as I am still in the early stages of my recovery. I am not sure how my vision will be in a few weeks. But I am hopeful and confident it will return to normal,” said Crenshaw.
Crenshaw’s pre-surgery statement said he expected to be blind for about a month during the recovery.
