[Histonet] how to keep thick sections on the slides after deparaffin

  I met a big problem in keeping thick sections on the slides after
deparaffin recently. I cut a 70um-thick mouse retina section on
superfrost plus Gold slides, leaving it dry for 2days. Before
deparaffin, I put the slide in the 65C oven for 30 min to let it melt,
then I did the general deparaffin procedure. Unfortunately, the section
fell off from the slide. Does anyone have any experience on deparaffin
thick sections? Any suggestions?
  Thank you,
