  3. 3. JUNE June 2009Kailua 2009 FREE There is also a Fort Collins and a detached retina this fall. September, October and part of November 2009 We came to Fort Collins to be with my nephews while Randy and Ruth Ann were in Scotland for two weeks in September. Wix developed a detached retina and had emergency surgery. The first week was the most difficult as he had to lay on his side for 55 min every hour. That was tough. Now he is on normal activity but is still required to stay at this altitude so that the pressure on his eye stays the same. Wix sees the Dr Nov ll and we think we will be able to return home soon after that. This has really changed our plans for the fall but on the plus side it has really been nice being here with Randy and Ruth Ann. I have been knitting and enjoying family. I have been going to a personal trainer who has taught me alot. Wix found some folks who do Tai Chi that he has enjoyed doing Tai Chi with. We both like Fort Collins alot. The weather has been for the most part beautiful, even if that has meant beautiful snow twice. We had 18 inches of snow here last week, and WIX ON HIS SIDE FOR A WEEK the boys had 2 snow days.
