My eye has gotten worse. We made arrangements on the first available plane (there’s a small resort here on Lizard Island with an airport) to get me (Frank) to the nearest city – Cairns, which is today. I will go to the hospital. I’ve had an ophthalmologist specialist I know in the US look at a photo of the eye and he says the condition is serious and will require special antibiotic treatments, and probably surgery. I may have to fly to a specialist in another city or country to get it specially treated.
This most likely will cause delays exceeding our ability to join the Rally in Darwin and going to Indonesia like we planned. So, for those of you expecting us in Darwin, it may not happen.
I will provide updates on the blog here when I have a better grasp of the circumstances and how it will change our plans.
