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.

    I invite you to post on my lasik blog, lasikchat.wordpress.com. I am hoping others will share the pros/cons/surprises good or bad of their surgey. Thx! Dave Woods

    I’m so impressed that you got Lasik. I’m scared of it, but I’m really quite blind without my glasses. (Had bifocals since I was 10, bifocals since i was 14.) I’d love it if you kept updating us on how it is. How it feels. Etc. Some day, I’ll work up the courage and the money for that.

    Also, I miss your posts and hope your foot is doing okay.
