I went in today for my one week appointment and everything is healing up well!
But here's the best part . . it started last night. I didn't have to wear my goggles! It is really more like a form of safety glasses in my opinion. After surgery, I had to wear them the rest of that day. And then at night for the first week.
I totally get why. I mean, who knows what a person does in their sleep. The first night, I took off my goggles and chucked them across the room in my sleep. I woke up and freaked out a little that I couldn't find them.
BUT, they are hugely uncomfortable! They have made me wake up several times a night for a week. I want sleep. I want my eyes to heal up nicely. And it is very hard to do with plastic trying to puncture my skull while I sleep! Did I mention that I move a lot in my sleep? That is a fact that probably belongs here.
Anyway, last night I was so excited to go to sleep! I took a picture of myself (ok, so not sleeping yet) and sent it to the hubster, who was watching the presidential stuff on tv. It was hard to go to sleep because I was so excited about sleeping without goggles!
Tonight I am thankful for sleep without goggles! I hope to fall asleep much more quickly tonight, since it is now the second night of no goggles.
