the returned missionaries of the world, well done Elder Duclos, it's great to have you back home.

Dave saw the eye specialist today; nothing was resolved, although we found out that there is bleeding in his left eye, making it very difficult if not impossible to see or to check for damage on his retina.
He has another appointment on Wednesday.
