WW: Drugged Up

Photobucket

Yesterday afternoon I had PRK Laser Eye Surgery. It went well and I am currently in recovery mode. The drugs were a Godsend last night. Today I am doing better- just some intermittent pain. Picture me with those black grandma glasses. Yeah... super purdy!

Posting this was kinda monumental as everything is blurry. If I was really on the ball I'd have scheduled something amazing from the lake house last week. But truth be told, life has gotten super hairy and time is not my friend. Although there is much to do, maybe having forced downtime isn't such a bad thing... I'm told my sight will be better by the weekend and will take a couple weeks before it is to full capacity. It is a little different than lasik, but hoping for a speedy recovery free of hiccups and a life of no more infections from my contacts or days having to wear glasses.

I feel completely blessed to have had a talented doctor that guided the surgery and eyes that allow me to see such exquisite beauty every day! Looking forward to sharing my world through my new pair of eyes in the coming days...

Hope that ya'll have a blessed Thanksgiving filled with wonderful food, friends and family.

  2. Yikes, Lish! I don't think I could ever go through with that. Was it scary? Sending you healing thought! Excited for you that you won't need contacts any more.

  3. You'll have to post how it is to take pictures after the surgery.  I'm curious if you notice a big difference in how you focus the lens.  Take care and quick recovery!

  12. I'm impressed that you took that photo AND managed to put up a blog post!  When I had Lasik done on my eyes, I just wanted to sleep.  And get that sandy, gritty feeling out of my eyes!  :)  Hoping you are back to normal quickly!

  29. I cannot do anything without my glasses and nothing active without my contacts. But I'm also petrified of Lasik or any kind of eye surgery. Looking forward to hearing more about your experience.
