Goodbye Glasses and Contacts

Monday, October 24th, 2011

In a few days I will be going under the knife…I mean laser. That’s right, I am finally going to get Lasik surgery on my eyes. I’ve been wanting to get this procedure done ever since I first heard about it years ago, but have been too chicken to go through with it. I figure since I’m taking some down time from training right now that it’s the perfect time to have the surgery done.

My friends and family who have had Lasik have been trying to talk me into getting this done for the longest time. But, I thought no way! The idea of having surgery on my eyes was too scary. After the hassle of contacts and glasses for the last 25 of 33 years, I finally worked up the courage to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dell at Dell Laser Consultants (DLC) to see if I was a good candidate for the Laser procedure. I chose Dell Laser as they are the best around and when it comes to having surgery on my eyes…I want the best Doctor out there. When they told me that no professional athlete should have to deal with contacts or glasses, I thought, they’re right.

The staff at DLC have been very professional and helpful answering all of my paranoia questions and yes… there have been many!

I’m really looking forward to being able to see the alarm clock in the morning! Check back in a week or so to see how I survived.

Taking Some Rest

This song pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling the last month!

I’m finally off anti-biotics and am feeling better everyday. I’ve been wiped out more then expected so I’ve just been taking it one day at a time.

In the mean time here’s what I’ve been up to…

-Home improvement project: Backsplash behind the stove.

After

-Baking: Almond butter cookies.

So the cookies were a bit dry and crumbly. I never said I was a good cook (quite bad to be honest) but I’m trying!

-Spending more time with these guys…my niece and nephew
