Sunday 21 July 2019 This may be myy last contrbution to WikiTree. Woke up this moring unable to seeanything but a blur out of my right eye, my left eye being virtually useless, as you can see by my typing.
Diabetes has caught up with me, sooner than I expected. I or my son will update this with any news.
Feb 2020 - sight is slowly returning to my right eye, and I'm due to have an operation on it at the end of the month. (Postponed due to coronavirus) Heart surgery in the meantime has slowed up progress with the eye. I was lucky. The anaesthetist for my eye operation in August didn't like the sound of my heart so referred me to my cardiologist who vetoed the operation, saying I might not survive the general anaesthetic, and I had a heart operation instead. If I hadn't have gone blind I might not be here today! I'm back on WT with renewed enthusiasm! Albeit at a slower pace as I can't read my textbooks.
March 2020 - lockdown here in France means that I can concentrate on adding more names from my database to WT, and trying to reduce the Unsourced and Suggestion lists for Bedfordshire. I can truthfully say that WT is helping to maintain my sanity during this difficult time.
