Since my last post, my brother and his daughters have come over to the UK to stay with us and have now gone home again. John and I miss them all, and we hope that time with us has helped their healing process.
During their visit, we had another complication: John developed two large tears in the retina of his left eye, after shrinkage of the vitreous in that eye put a strain on the retina. He had two types of repair in The Oxford Eye Hospital
(part of the John Radcliffe Hospital) on Tuesday, and so far so good.
That leads me to tonight's topic.
We were watching the athletics from Berlin over the weekend. As many of you must have also done, we watched (with mouths wide open!) as Usain Bolt
broke his own world record in the 100 meters.
Ahead of the race, one of the BBC's commentators was talking about how American runner Tyson Gay's physical condition was a bit up-in-the-air. He said "There's a question mark over Gay's groin."
That's funny...because before John had the freezing treatment on his torn retina (as we waited in the Day Surgery center), he had an arrow over his eye....(Click on the photo for a full-sized version.)
