As some of you might remember last summer I had the unfortunate experience of having an off-lead dog dart in front of me while I was traveling between 17 & 20 mph. I hit the dog broad side, came down hard enough to require a trip to the emergency room, and ended up with some damage to my right eye.
Well' it's been an on-going trial trying to keep the right eye functional. But tomorrow I head in for surgery to reattach the retina. We don't know if it will be successful, but I guess that's the case with any surgery. I don't especially like medical procedures of any kind, and know that this is far less serious than what others in this forum have battled. Despite that, I am a bit nervous about tomorrow. So, just two thoughts. One, wish me luck tomorrow. I don't really want to be riding with vision in only one eye. Two, those of you still having the discussions in the other threads about dogs, dog ownership, responsibility, protections, etc. This was a well trained dog but was not on a lead. When the squirrel ran in front of him, his training went right out the window. IMO, there's little substitute for a lead.
