Turns out my corneas aren't thick enough to be a candidate for LASIK. Rather than have me come all this way for surgery, only to go home without it, they gave me the option of doing the PRK surgery if i stay here in Orlando another week to recuperate. Dr. Hunter has a colleague in San Diego I can see if I have any complications after I fly home.
Sooooo, Mr. G and the kids will fly home Saturday as planned, and I will stay at my mom's house until the following Saturday.
I'm told the recovery will be painful and longer than LASIK. I'm told I won't want to visit with anyone or even be able to tolerate enough light to read until at least Monday or Tuesday. So that should be lovely.
But that means I also won't be blogging for another week, probably not even checking in from my phone like I am now.
Why am I getting the surgery done here? Because Dr. Hunter is one of the best eye surgeons in the country, using state of the art technology, and I happened to grow up with him and his brothers.
My surgery is tomorrow (Friday) at 9:45 Eastern. If you're the praying sort, I'd appreciate your prayers since I'm a TEENY TINY BIT FREAKED OUT BY THE PROCEDURE.
So have a great Easter and I'll see you back on Gingersnaps in the Morning after!!
