[hobbit] I'm back

Welcome back Henrik!

We sure missed you.
I have no idea how you did it. Nearly a month without books or computers would probably have been the end of me, but you are obviously made of tougher stuff :-)
I wonder is it possible to really die of boredom?

It's great to have you back though.
Are you back in the saddle again, or is it still a case of "take it easy" and "start slowly" and "you will get tired easily" and all the other fun stuff the quacks tell you?

But let's not knock doctors.
I went to my doc, and told him my eye hurts every time I drink coffee.
He asked me, one eye, or both?
I said one eye only.
He said I should take the spoon out of the cup.
Bloody smart those quacks :-)


P.S. Apologies for the lame humour, but I am a great believer in the ways of Dr Patch Adams.

Yes, Patch Adams, as played by Robin Williams in the movie, is a real person. (good movie, go watch it)

Hi everyone,

just a note that I am back following the eye surgery I had.
Everything went fine, and I'll end up having just as good vision as before all of this trouble started.

Thanks for all of the "get well soon" e-mail. One of you even sent me a postcard - I really appreciate your concern.

In case anyone else ends up in this situation, I'd advise you to make sure you have plenty of stuff to listen to, and also try to plan ahead for things to do that doesn't involve using your eyes much. 4 weeks without books and computers takes a lot of patience.

Now, off to catch up on events since I last had a look at the mailing list...
