  1. Good service since 1959. Seldom need to call.
  2. Whack the check valve with a hammer. It may cure the problem. If it happens again, replace the check valve.
  3. Avoid anyone who leaves you unsure that they have been vaccinated. Wear your mask and offer them one. If they refuse, stuff it in their throat and pinch their nose for four minutes. It may help the pandemic and the gene pool.
  4. lightning vs lightening. You can do one, while thee other will do you....quickly.
  5. Currently, the unvaccinated are being eliminated by the virus. Justice prevails....🙀
  6. That is possible, and would be good news. Be sure to get checked frequenly; just to be sure.
  7. Just like deities. Nevertheless, folks imagine them and put up images of them. Funny, how those words are so similar......
  8. In my experience, all of those "noiseless spaceships" have also been invisible. Imagine that!
  9. Have it your way. But, you should know that, when a vitrectomy is recommended, most will be done ASAP; within 24 hours, as retinal detachment and collapse is usually sudden and without many symptoms that you will notice before it happens. You may have a few flashes, and/or a few floaters, but many people just ignore them, as they are fleeting events. "He who hesitates is lost".
  10. Hesitating and/or avoiding the best eye clinic and retinologist in Guadalajara may cost you your sight. Get off your a$$ and get it done now. Your eye is probably deteriorating and will suddenly go dark when the retina detatches and falls to the bottom of your eye. You will not see anything at all. Blackness!!!!! It will be sudden. the only warning is what you have already received.
  11. Don't hesitate! You may wake up blind one morning without having the necessary vitrectomy. If you are still hesitant to get vaccinated, you may prefer a suffocating death to being blind. Random thoughts..........
  12. I have had several victrectomy's from 2004 through 2013. Dr. Enrique Roig (enriqueroig@retina.com.mx) did them at Clinica Santa Lucia in Guadalajara. I do have silicon oil in one eye, which has very limited vision, but the other eye has been quite successfully treated and does not require glasses for other than reading fine print. That said, my field of vision is too narrow to allow me to drive, and I now have glaucoma being treated for the last few years.
  13. Choosing to remain unvaccinated is really selfish. It is for those with such sociopathic tendencies that mandated vaccination is needed.
  14. Gee, we must have picked the one peaceful night to visit. Enjoyed good seafood supper near centro, and room service breakfast at the pet-friendly hotel.
  15. It is a well traveled route, and you should expect nothing out of the ordinary. Just decide how far you want to drive each day and pick an overnight location, as there are many choices. The last time we used that route, we did it in two long days with an overnight in Culiacan.
