I can see!
Thursday’s Lasik procedure went swimmingly. I’m hoping to post an edited-down version of the blow-by-blow I posted on my other personal journal, but it’ll have to wait until my eyes have recovered further and my tolerance for staring at the computer increases. So far I can say this is one of the best decisions I ever made – to be able to go from not being able to see 10 inches in front of your own face to seeing every little detail in this beautiful city with your naked eye is truly miraculous!
Nothing to report on my Achilles Tendonitis – even after 5 days of rest and almost two weeks of only wearing super-padded New Balance running shoes, I still can’t tolerate having any pressure (i.e. any shoe other than the New Balance) on the back of my right foot. Based on the lack of improvement from ice, massage, heat, rest and Aleve, I’m beginning to think it may be Haglund’s Deformity. I made an appointment with a podiatrist in February but tomorrow will be calling around to see if someone can see me earlier.
