Trip canceled!

Well, how fortunes change! We were supposed to leave in the morning for a month long, 5000 mile trip to Montana. All packed and loaded. Instead Iíll be in surgery for a torn and detached retina. Sounds rather ghastly to me, but glad it happened at home before we left. Alas, Iíll be off line for a few weeks. Be thankful every day for however much health you enjoy. Wish me well cyber friends!!

I'm sorry to hear that this fappened.
Having gone through the same thing back in 1988: do Exactly what they tell you to do during recovery.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Hope your recovery goes well and your trip is not really canceled but postponed instead!

Sorry to hear that. Prayers for a speedy recovery and like it's been said, Montana will be there when you're fixed up.

Sorry to hear about the surgery and having to cancel at the last second. But like you said better to deal with it while you are still home.

Hope all goes well and you get back on the road soon!

It's better that this happened now, and not while you are on the road. Speedy recovery for you sir. You will be back on the road in no time.

Cancelled trip

I like the sound of postponed better than cancelled!
Prayers for a complete and speedy recovery!

Here's to a speedy recovery.
I'm headed to Montana in August, maybe see you on the road there then.

I put my laptop on the floor and was able to look down and use it

As you guys know three weeks of keeping your head down is a long time

Hopefully he is doing well

Sorry you got your plans interrupted. Hope all go's well and you heal quickly. Say listen if you have reservations paid for, plans made, food packed, rig fueled up and ready to go it shouldn't go to waste. I would be happy to take over your vacation free. :-)

I just texted Pete and he's doing good. Getting some vision back and he's expecting a good outcome when fully healed. He still has a way to go

Thanks for the update!
Next time you "talk" with Pete: let him know that we're all pulling hard for him!
