Anyway, here you can join me on my journey. First stop, the night after:
I had to sleep with these clear plastic disc things strapped to my face so that I didn't claw my eyes out in the middle of the night. The first night was the worst because the numbing meds wore off about 30 min after the surgery, so I pretty much went home and went to bed. Then, I couldn't open my eyes. They were watering and stinging like terrible, like someone had rubbed an onion on them. It took me awhile to fall asleep.
When I awoke, it was not a pretty sight:
The place where I had the surgery done gave us all these very fashionable sunglasses to be worn at all times outside. Can't go wrong there, hey fashionistas?
By midday, I was able to open my eyes better and they watered less and less. (Please don't mind the hair. I wasn't allowed to shower and I had been napping all day!)
By evening, just 24 hours after surge, I looked almost as good as new!l
Now I have to go out and try my new laser-shooting eyeballs in the neighborhood. Thanks for reading!
