    I'm back - mission successful!

    Guys, thanks for the encouragement you gave me last week. It was much appreciated. I got back from the hospital and the laser surgery went very well. The retinal damage has been corrected - not sure what they did, but the laser technique focussed on the blood vessels around the retina - maybe they were cauterized, I don't really know. Having diabetes, there is a greater incidence of eye damage than normal.

    The retinal scans are ok. I've been told to scale back all exercise for the next 4 weeks, but at this time of year in the UK, that's not so hard to achieve! They say I can do light sessions at the gym, but I need to keep it brief with plenty of rest inbetween activity. Sustained activity is a no-go, so no riding allowed. Basically take it easy.

    At least the forums are nice and passive?

    Good deal, Bokkie! You should be all rested up for a nice ride on New Year's Day.

    New Years Day. I have not done a NYD ride for about three years. It was always a highlight of the festive season. Time to do it again, methinks!
