Through New Eyes!

I went yesterday to have LASIK eye surgery. I went in with glasses and came home with these……..

Actually these are chocolate eyes my friend Kristine, who also got the surgery yesterday, left on my purse while I was getting prepped for surgery. :) It was so nice to have someone to go through all of this with. As far as the procedure, it could not have been easier. It was quick, painless and today I woke up seeing EVERYTHING without glasses!!!!! It truly is a miracle.  What an amazing God we have! It is only through Him that we are able to have technology and Doctors that are able to do this. 

After the surgery yesterday they gave me a “sleeping pill” and I came home, ate, and fell asleep for 5 hours, woke up, ate dinner (thanks Riva) and went back to sleep. I would go through the whole procedure again just to have forced sleep time. (Almost 20 hours.) My eyes are just a bit tender but over all I am seeing 100 times better!!! In fact now that I can see, I am noticing how much I need to scrub my kitchen floor. YUCK! :)

This is the eye shield I had to wear all day and all night yesterday. When I took it off this morning my girls wanted to try it on. I will admit they look much cuter in it than I did.

I am so excited to start life without the hassle of glasses. It is really like breathing in fresh air. Thank you Lord for my new eyes. :)

……… now for that kitchen floor.
