See at last! See at last! Thank God Almighty, I see at last!!!

Today, I got Lasik done on my eyes. And I can see! For the first time since 3rd grade, I have been able to see without any correction whatsoever. The procedure itself was pretty quick with a little bit of discomfort, and my eyes are still a little itchy/swollen, and I had to keep my eyes closed for 4 hours afterward to let my eyes heal (thanks Pookie for leading your blind wife around and feeding her. And for taking pictures- which will be posted later). It was all worth it to be able to look at the trees and see leaves again without glasses. I can look at the horizon and see the fine line where the ocean ends and the sky begins. I can read things farther than six inches from my face. Woo Hoo! This has been the happiest day of my life since I married my best friend.
Things didn't start out so great with Jacquie falling and breaking her arm this morning. We went in for our surgeries at the same time- me for repairment of sight and her for repairment of a crushed radius. She's doing ok now, all doped up post-op at the hospital , recovering.

What a day!

Good for you, bad for her. I want a picture of you with your patches on. Did you take one?

Yeah Randy was good about taking pics when I got home after surgery. I looked really funny. They will be posted soon.
My eyes feel good today- I went in for a prescription check and I am 20/20 in both eyes! YAY! I have a little swelling still in my left eye which is causing my peripheral vision to be a little bit fuzzy but that's normal and should go away during the next few days.
I can't believe how good I can see now!

Awesome Kristi. Just wait till you need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. You don't have to put in your contacts before taking a shower.

NAS- Creepy, but well worth it!
