A repost of my initial blog after getting home from a stay in the most tropical part of France, Guadeloupe..

December 6th, 2011

I had an accident on Guadeloupe’s roads and spent some days in hospital. I don’t have a memory of the incident which means I’ll never know for sure what the cause of it was. The hospital looked after me as they would with any A&E victim then sent me home. They gave me a scan but they sent me home with the results which I then left in a taxi so I don’t know what they discovered there. The polis initially wanted me to stay for alcohol testing but then let me go home with my dad. So I took a quickly booked flight throught Paris back to Edinburgh. I’ve since been told thay my eyes are a bit of of line and I need to have one covered until it recovers. A shame since I’ll never get more into wave ski now or surf ski or exploring more of the mangroves. I need plenty of rest to recover and to gently get back into Kubuntu usefulness. Goodbye French Guadeloupe, I’ll miss you.

So, are you going to tell us how you are, now? I never saw your 'initial blog', anyway, but if this is a year old, how are you, now?

Are you still wearing the eye-patch, from your photo? I had to wear one for about 8 months, but thankfully, I'm fine now (although when I look at things around the corners of my eyes, it is still doubled. I'm just so thankful that I can see normally most of the time! Well, I say 'normal', but the doctors call me 'blind', I'd say 'partially sighted', but they say 'blind').


That would be giving the game away :)

A couple more blogs to come.
