It has been a whirlwind! Things should slow down a bit after this weekend, I hope!

The eye surgery went great. The procedure is a little scary but totally pain free. You can see everything they are doing and that is a little weird. My doctor was really great, he talked me through the whole thing as he went and really helped me relax. The surgery takes less than 3 minuets an eye and was totally pain free for me. They give you a muscle relaxant before and a gravol (sp) and 1/2 a Valium, quite the mix there! I felt sleepy but other than that pretty good.

After the surgery they have you sit in a dark room for about a half hour and then they give you an eye exam (2 prior to the surgery) I could see 20/20 just a half hour following the procedure. Very cool. I can see great now, but my eyes are light sensitive (this will go away) and get tired by the end of the day.

I was finding the computer screen to be a little tough on the new eyes, but it is improving. I feel like Dracula in the morning, I keep all the shades closed and avoid the sunlight. It seems to get better as the day goes on. I think it has to do with eyes being so dry in the morning. I see my local eye Dr. tomorrow to make things are healing well.

I finished the Udder Toque today, I was unable to download pictures onto the laptop for some reason (I got it back on Tuesday) I will take some time to figure out the camera and post the photos tomorrow.

Glad the surgery went well, your eyes will keep getting better over the next few months.
