You're one of THOSE. If I was the doctor doing surgery, I'd demand to put to sleep. :D

J: Having performed so many of these kinds of surgeries-I always left the decision up to the patient. But i would explain carefully to them the advantages of both being awake and being put out. It really depends on the patient and the surgery. For people who are good candidates i always recommended being as awake as possible. Never discount the number of anesthetic accidents and problems. Nothing we do is without risk and although the numbers are pretty small, there is a real increased risk of general anesthesia. Today was uncomfortable at most and certainly not in any way painful.

That one belongs on the pun thread.;) Thanks to all the well wishers. If my eyesight returns to form then maybe I can see all those penalties that Kotyra and Dumas and others have been calling. I've just had so much trouble figuring out if they are seeing something that I have been missing. :)

And if your eyesight doesn't return to form, you can be a ref yourself. ;)

I would never be able to do that-I am very compulsive and would actually try to do the job correctly.;) It just seems like some of these fellows make penalty calls by the sound of the hit alone.:eek:

Not knowing the recovery time for this type of surgery, will you know immediately after the patch comes off if your sight is what you wanted it to be, or will there be more time for your sight to clear up?
We cecrtaily hope for a full recovery and the ability to watch RPI hockey move forward with clear vision.
Get well soon.

Nice. Thanks for posting it.

Yes, we played Clarkson last year, but #10 doesn't play #9.

Thanks RB. Liked the article because one of my favorite Engineers, Haggs is featured. He has been absolutely dominant lately. John Rogic has played unbelievable as of late (cue the you youtube). Our puck possession has been fantastic and I am waiting for some puck luck to follow the hard work the boys have been providing. Go Red!!!!!

You have to eliminate the Matt Hatch part before posting that. :D

Patch removed an hour ago. The effect of the cataract removal and lens replacement is almost immediate. Went from legally blind (20/200) in the eye and corrected with glases to 20/100 to an immediate 20/30 without glasses and doc says that will get far better n the next week. The hooker in all of this is the retina surgery. Still have to protect the eye for now since the retina takes some time for the 'welding' of the two detached areas. But as Jenny was driving us home-i saw things around me that I have been missing for years-I can read almost all the signs and the colors are so vivid that it is mind boggling. Now the process is to keep protecting the area and frequent drops for inflammation and to avoid infection. Eye doc is suggesting that we think about the other eye-it is not urgent but the contrast between the vision now is so dramatic that it might just be prudent to do this again in a month or so for the other side.

Now back to the important stuff-anyone know how we stand health wise after the Union game? it seems to be we are at almost full strenght minus one major injury that was probably season ending.

This is all great news Doc, and glad to hear turning out so well for you.

Sounds great, take care of that eye. After all, what good is Cherry and White if you can't see it.

Did anyone else notice that O'Grady didn't play in most of the third period on Saturday and I don't think he was there during the hand shakes. Hope he isn't hurt again, because I think he has been strong in the penalty kill and the 14, 27, 12 line could explode at any time.

I was prepared to ask for a bit more than that tonight.;)Think of that intraocular pressure Doc! :p All the best for a rapid recovery.

Much to catch up on... Doc, hope you see your way through to a quick recovery (it's a cold, rainy night here, enjoy the hot choc and marshmallows)! ;)

Very neat story about the BRO giving the puck to the young fan. What's that old quotation attributed to Lincoln??? Ah yes, 'No man stand so tall as when he stoops to help a child.' :) Talk about winning hearts and minds!

As big as our 2000th game will be, I'm looking forward to our 1000th win... may it occur soon. :cool:

Hope O'Grady can shake off injuries and finish his senior season with a bang.

This weekend's slate of games is big... Take in Red Cloud's observation in latest WaP: we've had the hardest schedule in ECAC to date (per KRACH)... we've been playing some very solid hockey over the last several weeks... building consistency... our remaining RS schedule holds some opportunities... time to keep up our play and pick up some wins/points. See you at the Harvard game on Friday.

BTW... according to KRACH, Union has second lowest strength of schedule rating among teams ranked in the top 20. :o

This hasn't be brought up recently, but only 13 more victories until RPI reaches 1000. Not likely to happen this season, but I can still hope. Also only 17 more games until we reach 2000. With 10 regular season games remaining, if we play in the first round of the ECAC playoffs and then get to AC with at least one loss, we will reach that this year. (We can also make it several ways if we make the NCAA tourney. In the unlikely event that we get a bye in the ECAC tourney and reach both the ECAC and NCAA finals with no loss in the ECAC tourney, we will make it to 2000 in the NCAA championship game. :) )

Our current record is 987-877-119 in 1983 games for a .528 percentage. The modern era stats are 962-804-113 in 1879 games for a .542.

Another question is why is a three-digit decimal representation called a percentage? :)

That should be "NCAA semifinal game". :o (And we could lose either the ECAC semis or finals or both, although it would hurt our chances for making the NCA tourney.)
