My best case hope has been exceeded and we will be home in five hours, and probably at camp in time to get a sunset picture from the palace.
I had a vitreous hemorrhage a little more than a week ago. I had a light show like a '60s hippy vision in my left eye followed by severely impaired sight - like a hairball stuffed into my pupil.
When it didn't improve after a week I went to hospital emergency in Sioux Lookout and from there was sent to a doctor in Dryden and from there to Winnipeg.
It sounded like I might need immediate surgery. But I don't. The gel in my eyeball is coming loose (not an uncommon thing to happen). In this case the process ruptured a blood vessel and caused bleeding in the eye. I guess a torn or detached retina is the main concern, so we'll have to monitor that, but otherwise all is well, except for the nuisance of peeking around and through that hairball for a few weeks as this condition heals.
Oh, yeah The doctor says no bungee jumping...
Thank you all for your concern and good wishes. I really appreciate your caring.
P.S. Spent last night in a Winnipeg motel with Mary. Know what we did for excitement?
Heh heh... we ordered a pizza and watched a Blue Jays baseball game. I fell asleep in the sixth inning.
