Which means going to sleep soon. This is the text message I sent Em late Friday night after my Lasik Procedure. (Emma is my friend, my editor, and the mom of my daughters best friend.) Let me back up, on Friday I had Lasik Procedure performed by one well-known Dr. G., who by the way, seemed to think I was a bit nervous and worried I might suffer some sort of post surgery stress (knowing the subject) and that I would be calling him at 2 am. Which of course I DID NOT DO. Mainly because I had my husband take me back to his office 2 hours and 55 minutes after surgery anyway.. just to have a little check-up. (I was feeling a bit out of sorts.) Only that it took us a very long time before we actually got to Dr. G’s office because there was so much traffic. Basically by the time we got there I was sort of already feeling better, but then S-man had already missed half a day of work because of me so I couldn’t very well tell him it was a false alarm and now I was actually starting to feel great. So anyway we get to Dr.’s office and he is sort of waiting for us and that is probably because I sounded a bit hysterical because my eyes were tearing up a tiny bit. Anyway, he was really nice and all, and had a look and told me that everything was just going exactly as it should. (considering I just left the clinic 3 hours earlier..) but I felt 10 times better because sometimes I need to be reassured like that. So we got back in the car and went home. (me and S-man, not me and Dr.G)
Finally I was relaxing also because I decided to have wine with my Lexotan then all of a sudden I couldn’t remember if I should put drops in my eyes during the night. So I sent Dr. G a quick text..and hopefully it didn’t look anything like the one above, but I think it might have – because then he called me back almost immediately to reassure me for 100th time that day, and that ‘no I did not need to put drops in my eyes while I was sleeping.’ which made sense really.
A very exhausting day. All that worrying for nothing, 26 seconds of laser on each eye and well, okay I didn’t feel a thing.
