Hi everyone. I’m going offline for about a month to recover from retinal surgery, which will take place tomorrow morning. I’ve had this surgery twice before – once in April 2008, and again in August 2009. This surgery is a repeat of August’s surgery, which was – unfortunately – not entirely successful, and I’ve continued to have vision problems with my left eye. There’s background on the procedure I’m having – vitrectomy – and the reasons I’m having the procedure in this blogpost here… and the success I had on the surgery on the right eye.
As with the past surgeries, there’s a long recovery period during which it’s painful and difficult for me to read. While I use assistive technologies and can be online a small amount each day, I usually don’t blog while recovering. (I’ve got a post or two queued up that might arrive after this one…) For anyone trying to reach me via email – please don’t expect a speedy response. Looking forward to seeing you when I’m back online in March.
