On July 3rd, I had eye surgery to repair a detached retina. The retina specialist inserted a gas bubble into the eye which helps the retina reattach. To keep the bubble in place, I have to lie on my left side, my rights side, or my stomach. I can also look straight at the floor when I’m sitting up. Needless to say, this has cut down a great deal on my writing, blogging and posting.
With this air bubble, I cannot fly or be placed in a hyperbolic chamber. I wasn’t planning on doing anything hyperbolic but I had planned to fly to the RWA conference in Atlanta on Tuesday. However, I also do not want to lose my vision which could happen if I fly while the gas bubble is still present.
I visited the retina specialist this morning. He says I cannot fly on Tuesday. I see him again Wednesday and he may allow me to fly Thursday or Friday.
Hope to begin blogging soon but, first, I have to go stare at the floor.
