Though I have found it difficult to make it to these forums I love as often as I'd like at times, I've never been absent as long as I have since February 1, 2002. That morning, while waking for work, I rolled over and moved one of the cats on the bed. He was startled, thinking he was under attack by another cat and struck, biting me on the left eye! Yes, he bit me on the eye!
Anyway, after a whirlwind tour or the local ER, a trip to the ophthomologist, and then back to the hospital for surgery, by 1 PM that day I was in a hospital bed for four days trying to prevent infection and save my damaged left eye. I'm on the mend, infection in the cornea is on the run, and I am told in about six months time I will be pleased with how good my vision has been restored. But for now it is hourly eye drops and ever decreasing levels of pain as the eye heals. If you've noted my absence, that is why. Viewing a computer screen becomes easier each day and I will return to moderating the Hasbro AOTC section again within a few days.
Special thanks to Bubba Fatt for getting me home from the hospital as Mrs. JediCole was working that day.
And for those of you in the DFW, Texas area, I hope to see you all at the Sci-Fi Expo and Toy Show in late February in Plano!
