Yesterday I was in BOOTS the Chemist where I was having my eyes tested. The optician was somewhat disturbed with what he saw and needed some clarification. A few drop in the eye and all was revealed. I have a torn retina in my left eye. DOH! That is not to be confused with the torn retina I had in my right eye last year
Not to worry he wrote me a report and sent me off to the JR hospital. There I was seen by the very same doc who saw me the last time and he confirmed that I did indeed have a torn retina. Arrangements have been made to fix it on Tuesday.
Given that I will be 'taking it easy' for a couple of weeks I decided that now would be a good time to fill up with water and empty the doo doo tank. So with Morts invaluable help we set off to Eynsham. "Should only take about 3 hours", says I. Five hours later we arrived back at the start point duly filled, emptied and soaked to the skin. Aint boating grand?
