blind update.

Well, I had my second consultation with the eye surgeon on Tuesday and the news isn’t so great. It turns out that even after wearing my (very uncomfortable) glasses for over two weeks, my eyes are still not suitable for the surgery. I won’t go in to great detail because I honestly can’t speak “eye terminology language” but I do know it has something to do with the shape of the front of my eye being too steep… or something like that. Apparently this condition is pretty rare and causes the risk factor to soar in to the red- meaning it is not safe. TEAR…

While Lasik isn’t an option for me, there are other, much more expensive, surgery’s I might be able to get. I left the appointment feeling a bit deflated and silly. I was so worried about the “laser in the eye” fear that I never even considered that I wouldn’t qualify for the procedure. Now I would kill for someone to point a laser in my eye and give me perfect vision... Oh well, I guess you can't win them all.


Because I am an "extended contact wearer" there are a few things I have to change about how much I wear them in order to not cause more damage. It looks like I will now be an official wearer of glasses three days a week... Yea! (do you since the sarcasm??) The silver lining was a bit hard to find here but I guess I am just thankful there are inventions like contacts and glasses that help me see a world I would otherwise not.

But for now I have ended my affair with my glasses and am back in a healthy relationship with my contacts... At least until I get some new, less uncomfortable glasses. Oh- and there's the silver lining! SHOPPING :)


We are currently half way through a ten hour drive to Stockton, a little place just north of New Castle in New South Wales. We started the adventure last night after work and I CAN'T WAIT to show you pictures of the little road side motel we stayed at last night. Let's just say it might have been the oldest place I have ever slept!

We hope everyone has an amazing weekend full of fun and adventures and I'll be back in a few days with pictures and stories from our long weekend...
