I'm seriously so excited. And nervous. Really really nervous. But mostly excited. Except for the whole slicing the eyeballs thing. OMG. Thank goodness for
I've been waiting so long for this. I've wanted to do it for years and years, but I had to wait until my prescription stabilized. And then I had to wait until I wasn't pregnant. And then I had to wait until I was done nursing. But now, I'm good to go. I was even able to get it all figured out in time for open enrollment so I could take out FSA to pay for it. Woohoo for saving money!
The countdown starts tomorrow. I have to be out of my contacts for two weeks before my surgery on January 27. Not looking forward to wearing my glasses for two weeks straight, especially since they're not my current prescription (didn't want to pay for new lenses that I would only have for a few months before LASIK). But it'll be so worth it, I'm sure. At least I hope, assuming nothing goes wrong. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed.
|goodbye glasses (until I get old and start needing them for reading)|
Has anyone else had LASIK? I'd really love to hear about it. Just be kind and don't scare me too much...
PS: apparently I'm not a druggie because when I wrote this last night I got valium and vicodan confused. Thankful for both, but the valium is for the anxiety relief before the procedure as I'm reading through the paperwork and deciding whether to risk permanent blindness. Yeah.
