I’m back! The surgery was much harder than I imagined it would be. I had a very very hard time keeping my eyes straight to focus on the light. What can I say, I have extremely sensitive eyes… I mean, that is why I wanted to get the procedure done in the first place. Well, one of MANY reasons. After the procedure I even heard one of the nurses in the hallway say “She has really light eyes, She is going to have a REALLY hard time”. I’m pretty upset I didn’t bring my camera. People were able to watch outside the glass and there was even a camera focused close-up on my eye as they did the procedure. I would have loved to have pictures of it! Oh well, next time (ha ha). My mom was there to take care of Marlowe while I got it done and my dad came for moral support which was really nice of him. I did have pretty high anxiety while laying on the operating chair, even after the anxiety medication they gave me. I’m really not good in claustrophobic situations. I could hardly open my eyes when it was all over with. It was painful. I went home to take a nap and woke up with still very sensitive eyes. I had to wear sunglasses inside– at night. And just as I suspected: it was a terribly boring night. I was home alone, unable to be on my computer or read a book or anything. Once Marlowe was asleep I was bored out of my mind sitting on my bed with nothing to do. But I mean, I can’t really bitch, after all it was one night out of my life…. and now for the rest of my life (or at least until I’m much older) I will have great vision! I woke up the morning with 20/15 vision. Incredible. Everything is still a bit hazy and all the lights have halos on them… especially at night, but that will all clear up over time. I also got left with these pretty ridiculous red spots which I am told will grow before they shrink. Meh, temporary details. I woke up early yesterday morning to drive to my post-op appointment and I felt incredible. Everything was so crisp and clear. I wanted to drive with the windows open enjoy the air and clear sky! It sounds cheesy, but I don’t care. It really was an incredible feeling. I’m so lucky and grateful for the generous gift my dad gave me.
