The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow (Right?)

Boy, do I hope so. Today completely sucked. I know that I have agreed (with myself) not to vent too much here about things that could get me into trouble, but today bit the big one. I have a least favorite person today, and I have a strong feeling that he'll be my least favorite person tomorrow. At least I got to vent at happy hour. That's always a good time. Thanks, friends. :)

As crappy as today was, tomorrow I have higher hopes. I have (yet) another eye appointment in Bel Air, and I am hoping that I can get my final eye surgery scheduled. For those of you that don't know, I've had two eye surgeries in the past two months to correct my eyes. My eyes are quite healthy, but they were too bad to be fixed by LASIK alone. If it means anything to you, each eye was around -12 or -13.

To date, I have had ICLs (implantable collamer lenses) implanted in each eye (see here for an animated video of the surgery). I still have one more surgery (probably LASIK) to fix the (now minor) corrections. At this point, I am very anxious to get this whole thing over with. It's been a long road.

To commemorate this day, below are pictures for all of you of each eye after their respective surgeries.

This is my right eye, which was first. I needed a lot of valium for this one!

My left eye was second. The pupil was bigger here because they used drugs to keep it open longer. It helped with the pain; don't ask me how.

Aren't they beauteous?

Kinda reminds me of the old "look in eye" game our family played. You will have to quiz them for details.

Well, if the Sun came out today, it sure wasn't in Akron. Hope your least favorite person, whoever it is, ultimately is only a dull memory. Life sucks sometimes but the key is to have more friends than anyone else (or is that toys?) :-)

By the way, I have to tell you this... the "word verification" staring at me below I'm going to have to type in says "lipshtz"!!
