Unexplained Absence

My favorite sign
Glad you all enjoyed the humor. Right after that post, I finally got fed up with the weird floater and went to an eye doctor. (What a tall, young, drink of water! Even my wife said so.) He did an exam and wanted me to see a retinal specialist. His admin called and the specialist scheduled an appointment for first thing yesterday.
Evidently, a retina can detach quite quickly and cause permanent blindness. So, another thorough exam was done. (Not tall, not especially young, but a drink of water nonetheless!) The retina hadn't detached, but there was a tear in it... When I asked when we should schedule to come back, he said, "No, no. We're doing it right now! I just need to warm up the laser."
One word describes the laser procedure: OUCH. I told my wife I wanted to "mother-fuck" him, but thought it wouldn't be very nice, so I grabbed hold of the edge of the gurney and squeezed. Hard. Had the wife been holding my hand I probably would've broken hers.
Anyway, that explains my absence yesterday. I hope you all understood. I hope you all enjoyed the first day of Autumn...

My dear Pat, you should have shown them your previous update to cheer them up and they would have ceased to be two drinks of water!
Anyway, a drink of water has never flooded anybody, then make what they tell you to make.
I admit that it is not exciting, but not to make it would be the worse.
You imagine yourself blogging with a keyboard in Braille, with photos in relief, admittedly, but which can not be "seen" with your fingers?
For the moment, have a great day, my dear friend, with a lot of bisous

I was concerned! Now take care of your eyes! I have inherited Macular Degeneration but it is controlled and the specialist assures me that I will never go blind! Great post again. Enjoy your "Fall"! Our Spring has returned to Winter - very cold with rain and gale-force winds. Most unpleasant. OH! Yes! Good news from the neurologist. "Come back in twelve months"! Hugs across cyberspace, Patrick :-)
