WOW guys and girls ! Thank you very much !! I appreciate all the prayers and kind words. Credit to the great people on this forum. Im doing pretty good now as far as long distance vision but reading vision is bad most of the time. Im blind in my right eye and the left eye has been going through a few months of vitreous detachment which is usually harmless and is no bother except causing floaters which I have an eyeful. Mine had 2 small retina tears that are all good now. My issue left is my lens has hardened and its not real flexible so it doesnt focus well messing with my vision. I get a few good hours a day. Usually doctors would replace the lens as its done every day but they are hesitant to do it right away because if something goes wrong it wouldnt be good. They assured me last week it will be done someday, Im just impatient and want it now. Thanks again for your prayers and kind words , Get out there and enjoy these awesome Rangers. Bret

Bret, I've been missing you here at the peanut gallery. Prayers sent for a quick recovery, and you can ride with us again soon. Just to let you know that we've been unable to get Al @Texasota to get a dang damper, but I really think he's beginning to see the right. :) Get well soon brother.
Jim, having dreams is good for the soul. Keep on dreaming!

Glad you are back, Bret!

Bret,

I hope you hear soon that your procedure will be moving ahead. In the meantime, be as patient as you can and know that you have a lot of folks here in your corner. I‘m wishing the best for you as you manage your way through this tough time. Can’t wait to have you back here in the forum on a regular basis.

Get better soon Brett...our annual vacation to BETHANY BEACH is coming in September and we could try to do a drive-by to say hi. Also have retired friends at the Hamlet at Diricksons Pond in Frankford, and hang there a lot! Not to mention our fave Banks Beverage! #rangerstrong

This was back in June, seeing Tracy ask how you are, maybe this thread should get bumped again.
Bret, man TF up and go to the local pharmacy, pull your eyes out and plug two new ones in. :rolleyes:
Now dont laugh to hard bc they may pop out. :oops:




I try and keep a list of known people here going through stuff, and I actually pray that you get better. Been through enough medical to understand it sucks. I say this in truth, I really hope you get better (full recovery) and back to posting soon. God Bless

Last time I talked with Bret he was doing better but still not 100% yet. I've seen him lurking on here once in a while but I think reading still bothers him.

Hope you're doing well there buddy we all miss you and hoping you come back home soon.
