"Eye" am tired...


It is amazing that less than 24 hours after surgery I was able to drive myself to the Eye Doctor for a post op followup.   I can see to drive.  A bit fuzzy on the edges, but I can SEE!

When I get tired or don't get enough wetting drops in them, which is every 5 minutes, it gets hard to see.  They say this will last for a couple of weeks until the flap heals.  Small price to pay.

For the first time in my life I was able to wake up this morning and see the clock across the room on the dresser and think, "Oh my heavens we are going to be late today!".   

It is only going to get better from here on out.

And for those that are wondering, they didn't install the laser beams as requested.  According to a friend, I should have waited a couple of months for the second stimulus package.  

Good night.  Need to rest them eyes now that they cost more than my first car.

Did I miss something? When did you get your eyes done? I'd love to do it, too, but the idea of it completely freaks me out. Good luck with the healing process. Maybe you'll heal as fast as Rachel has. :)

Glad to hear all went well, now I will possibly think about having it done since you were my test sister on this subject. haha
