After spending some time out today, I came to the conclusion

that it's a good thing no work this weekend.  This did, however, give me some to to put the data in proper observation form

A bit of cleanup

Despite all, there is data

For tonight, at least

UVA president Jim Ryan is an asshat.

At best.
The Provost’s office, in conjunction with the colonel of UVA’s ROTC program, made the decision. The ceremony marks the conclusion of a 24-hour vigil by ROTC cadets and has included the 21-gun salute for more than a decade.

“One is that it would be disruptive to classes and two, unfortunately with gun violence in the U.S., there was some concern that we would cause a panic if someone heard gunshots on grounds,” said UVA President Jim Ryan.
Bullshit.  Ryan or some other asshats wanted to get rid of it, and this is their excuse.  Next will be getting rid of ROTC entirely, because knowing that those horrible people are on campus causes some pussy to clutch his security blanket and seek a safe space.

One of the aftereffects of the procedure is

that as the gas/fluid interface moves, I now have a line across the (blurry still)vision in that eye.  Which is now across the upper field of view. 

Which means that when I walk that line has a wave pattern moving back & forth across it(jiggles a bit with heartbeats, soo).  As Og put it, my eye is now a damned bubble level.

As I can now look up some,

I'll expand a bit.

This was a 'take out some fluid from the eyeball and replace it with gas' procedure, the gas is supposed to put pressure on the injury and keep it closed so it can heal.  Which, since the injury is at the back, that means staying face down as much as possible.  I was told three days in my case; the idea of doing it for a week, let alone a month or more, is horrifying.

Takes about two weeks for the gas to disperse and be replaced by fluid, so my vision in that eye is screwed(blurry as hell, improving as the gas volume reduces) for that time.

This crap better work.

Maybe some bitching and moaning about news stuff later.  Right now I'm more wondering how long it'll be before I can ride, and can shoot heavier stuff than .22s.

It was done, I'm still breathing,

though my neck aches like bleep from this 'face down all the time' part. 

All seems as it should.

More when I can keep my face upright for typing(and eating, and drinking, etc.)
