My Early Christmas Present

I guess the husband is feeling awfully grateful that I haven't yet packed my bags and fled the country, because he has offered to liquidate some of his savings so that I can have Lasik surgery.

YEE-HAW!

Could I possibly be close to seeing in the shower again? Swimming? Seeing the clock at night?

I go this afternoon for the pre-op appointment and if they determine I am a candidate, I might be spectacle free by the end of the week!

Well, probably next week, but hey, that's still good.

I used to be afraid to have this done. Afraid of going blind. Afraid of side effects. But, damn, I've had three c-sections. I can do this measly little outpatient eye surgery.

And the fact that all of these appointments will be getting me out of the house for large stretches of time is just an added bonus.

Woo hoo!! I had LASIK, and I've never regretted it. You know what's funny? I would always talk about seeing the clock in the middle of the night, and people would didn't wear glasses never understood. It's HUGE to see the clock? And fall asleep watching TV without bending the frames of my glasses...

Good Luck!

AWESOME! I'd LOVE to not have glasses. I've actually quit wearing mine....just because. I really don't want to have to have glasses. I refuse.

A friend on OHMs had this and now he has 20-20 vision. You'll love it.

That's great, but aren't you nursing still? My sister was told that she should wait for 6 months AFTER she'd been done nursing as the whole pregnancy/lactation thing messes with your eye shape or something...

I'm jealous! Well, sort of. I could never stomach the surgery. I'd go blind from cataracts before I'd have any form of eye surgery (and yes, that is a possibility, my whole family has had them...well, the elderly ones) - or they'd have to knock me out cold. Anything near my eyes freakses me out.

But yay for you! I'd kill to be contact free!!

Wow, that sounds really nice. What a great reward for lasting the visit.
