I know I planned on blogging more, but it just hasn't happened. Oh well...next week I'll try again. Why not this weekend? Well, in less than 24 hrs I'll be having LASIK. This means that I won't be on the computer much over the weekend as my eyes heal.
This week has been an interesting one in relation to my eyes and running. I had my pre-op appointment on Monday. They dilated my eyes during the appointment and 24 hours later they were still partially dilated. Needless to say, I didn't bother trying to run on Monday afternoon as I originally planned. Sitting on the couch was enough exercise for me. I was able to run on Tuesday and Wednesday. Today we have snow so instead of running, I'm spending my little 'me' time shoveling the driveway. I love being out in the snow, so I'm fine shoveling instead of running.
This brings me to tomorrow. I will work first thing in the morning and then head to my LASIK appointment. I'm really excited. When my appointment is done, ADP will drive me home and I plan on taking a good nap! I can say that I am ready to be done putting drops in my eyes. First the dilation on Monday. Now I'm doing two days of drops to make sure I don't have any eye infections. After the LASIK procedure I'll have to put more drops in to aid in healing.
The downfall is that I cannot do any exercise or anything that will get sweat in my eyes or cause lots of tearing for 7 days. So, no running. No walking the dog in the cold weather (my eyes water a lot). No cutting up onions (what, oh what will I eat...I put onions in so many of our recipes). My one week appointment is one I am looking forward to because I hope they say I can exercise again. Until then, I'll be the one twiddling my thumbs waiting for the week to pass.
