I don't know what to say. I just thought this news deserved its own thread. I just got an updated email from Al on his right eye:

"Bad news! The procedure did not work from Wednesday, I have emergency eye surgery Monday morning at 7:30 am in Baltimore.

Keep me in your thoughts. Don't know how long my recovery will take.

I'll stay positive although disheartened."

Not right Al! You're most likely in surgery as I type...I'm keeping the positive flow of energy going to you in Baltimore from me in Saint Louis. Looking forward to good news soon!

Really sorry to hear the news about Al, I will pass it to my son Davidf as I know he and Al do message now and again. Chin up Al as they say on this side of the pond.

The latest from Al:

[pardon any typos- can barely see computer screen- typing very slow]

I am home recovering from my scleral buckle surgery in my right eye,
It went well. I won't even have to lie face down to start the healing.
The doctor and nurse staff were excellent. They are so professional.
[I was at Dulaney Eye Institute in Baltimore for operation.]
I was under local anesthesia for awhile but they woke me up because I was snoring!!
Tell every one "THANK YOU"
I'm sure the well wishes and prayers were fulfilled this morning.
Long road ahead, but I feel more upbeat at least.
Not too much pain so far.

(Please don't tell Al I left in the "snoring" part - I mean, after all, HE can't see it! bwahahahaha)

Thanks so much for the update, Jan. Pleased to hear those words came from Al who's sounding lots more chipper. I know we'll all continue including him in our thoughts and prayers.

I logged in quickly just to say hello and THANK YOU! I am so heartened and gratified with the messages I've received.
Recovery will take awhile but it's off to a good start. Off work for time being .
My employer told me that productivity is up in the last few days at the start of New Year, That's a good thing isn't it?

I miss playing and chatting of course.
Bye for now- have fun playing.

P.S. is there a rumor that I snored during my operation? who would do such a thing?

Keep up the good work in getting better, Al
Sorry I haven't sent you the peppermint patties yet.
I'm still in the joint called a hospital.
I'll be sure to send you extras when I kick this joint!

It's nice to be fired for that reason, huh, Janice?

Good to see you online, Al. Speedy recovery, our thoughts remain with you.

Hi Al....
Very happy to hear that your op went well
and recovery has started well....
If your employer says productivity is up - then you
can probably stay home for longer and play on
Sploofus all day!!!!
And eat those disreputable Peppermint Patties!!!!
