Later On

A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

Temporarily inactive. Here’s why.

Photoboth, via screen shot. Not so painful, in fact, but vision in my left eye (Photobooth apparently does mirror image rather than actual orientation: the bad is on my left in fact) is compromised. In fact, right now, no vision. It comes back slowly. I did learn the gas used in the bubble C3F8: fluoridated propane, which is inert. (Fluorine atoms replace the hydrogen atoms in propane.)

The scleral buckle is not at all uncomfortable, though it’s a YMMV thing: for some people it’s agonizing at first. I’m one of the lucky ones, and I’m also full of Vicodin, which might have something to do with it.

The Wife is going to on me about using the computer, but I thought you’d want to see the results. So far, so good.

  1. Please take notice of “the Wifes” request, also just take it easy for the next few days. Boring yes I’d have to agree but maybe necessary to effect a full recovery. Men are stubborn, but sometimes we just have to give in and listen to those that know better. I’m sure i echo the thoughts of all your followers, we’d rather have a few days with no blog and have you back fully fit and raring to go. If you are doing as your told you may not read this for a few days, but be assured many people will be thinking of you and all will be wishing you well.
    All the very best Anthony & Jacqui

  5. That is a pretty dramatic photo! I admit I gasped a little. Sending you best wishes for a speedy recovery. Be a patient patient.

  6. I have missed your recent eye surgery news, but I’m sending good wishes for a quick recovery. Boy, you’ve really had the full Monty. I recall that John Aravosis at Americablog had an emergency scleral buckle procedure whilst he was visiting in Paris a couple of years ago, so he had an interesting perspective on ze French medical system to boot. (And if I recall correctly, you’re not supposed to be reading? Hm?)

    Please ignore the needs of your readers and concentrate on yours for the time being, okay?
