Well, that is the hope. I was supposed to have it last September, and even went in for the procedure. Unfortunately I had a bad cold and it had gone into my eyes so they couldn't do the surgery. Two weeks later I found out I was pregnant with Baby J. Maybe it was fate? Over the years though I have had the money for the surgery a couple of times, but for one reason or another that money came and went and I never got it done. I'm hoping this time it the time for me.

Over the years I've had some pretty bad run-ins with various frames. From super-thick lenses to massive round frames that make me look like an owl. Mr H can't contain himself when he looks at some of my school photos. I just cringe with the shame of it. What were my parents thinking letting me leave the house like that??
|What was I thinking?|
At the age of fourteen I was allowed to try contact lenses, and I didn't look back. Finally I could leave the house every day not feeling like a freak and I felt that after years of glasses and braces I was finally blossoming. Nowadays I don't wear them quite as much. They make my eyes dry and tired so this is probably a good thing, and because I've known for a few months now that the surgery would be possible I have put my lenses to rest more and more. Now in the last few days before my surgery, I have had to give them up for good. Hopefully, for a while at least until old age sets in, I can throw the plastic aids away. I can't wait for my glasses to follow!
