The Gift of Sight

I had my LASIK done on Thursday and it was definitely a life changing experience for me! I've worn contacts all my life except for the last 2 months of wearing glasses to prep my eyes before the surgery. I wasn't nervous at all before and during, I actually didn't even consider the thought of something going wrong, just totally at peace.
Nobody prepared me for the drive home though! I was in serious pain and I couldn't get comfortable and I just remember ending up in the backseat and Rob going to Panda Express...but I got home and in bed and slept it off and work up with near perfect sight!!!!!
My close up sight is still a little hazy but the rest of my vision is perfect and colors and things are just so sharp and bright now, it's just amazing!

I do keep having major anxiety at night before bed because I just have this feeling like I'm supposed to take my contacts out, like I shouldn't be going to bed being able to see, so that has been an adjustment and I'm sure will go away in a few days, at least I hope so!

It's awesome to be able to look in the mirror at myself and finally see me! I love my eyes, they are one of my favorite features about myself and now I can fully appreciate all they do for me. I can't even put into words how blessed I am do be a part of a technology that can restore people's sight. It truly is a miracle and I will be grateful each and every day for this gift! I can travel so light now, no more contact cases, multiple cleaning solutions, glass cases, my life is forever changed!

I know that in the next couple weeks my night vision will be restored and this haze will start to go away, so I can't wait for it to just get better.

Life is wonderful, we have had so many blessings already this year and we know that when we work hard and do our part that we are blessed that much more.....

I have nothing to say but I was tired of looking at Rob shoving his face into mine so I'll just throw up a super cute pic of my sweet nephew who is growing up so fast! I forced him to wear this outfit, so freakin cute and had to shove his fat feet into his uggs, so much fun to dress him up!!!
