I've been sending PM's to Eric and finally sent an email. His wife responded....

This is Eric's wife answering for Eric.
He has had quite a rough time the last few weeks.
Quickly
He fell in a customers house and fractured both kneecaps AND cracked his forehead open (no hospital no stitches)
Then he developed a cataract in his good eye (he is blind in the other) so we are waiting for it to 'ripen' so it can be removed.
He is having a really hard time reading anything. He can drive and do things that does not require fine visual acuity. He is however going in Tuesday for the cataract operation, and should be returning shortly afterwards .
So right now Eric is blind in one eye and can't see out of the other...
He did tell me to tell you guys ,he misses you all, and can't wait to see again, and get back online.
Laura

I'm sure you all join me in wishing him the best and a speedy recovery.

The cataract surgery should restore vision in that eye.
