A week ago today, Bryan and I sat in the waiting room of the Optometry area in the JBER hospital. It was really early, but I was wide awake…and nervous. I had heard about what was about to happen, and it made me squeamish. We arrived early, and they promptly called out “Weiss” at 8:00AM. I nervously fidgeted for my phone to text everyone I knew for prayers and to keep my mind off of what was about to happen. As I texted Bryan’s mother, Bryan experienced something I could NEVER do. He watched as a fellow patient squirmed away as they staff attempted to put eye drops in. “That would so be Brittany,” Bryan smiled and thought. The doctor came in, put clamps on Bryan’s eye lids to hold them open (I would have had a fit right there) and scraped the top layer of Bryan’s eyes with something he thought similar to a toothbrush, and then allowed a laser to “Zap” his eyes – 9 seconds on the right and 16 on the left. Bryan spent the last week resting and recovering from his PRK procedure and helping me talk through current Photography business decisions. Though definitely uncomfortable, he was elated to find at his recent check up that while he is still on strict recovery regiments, he is already seeing 20/20, and his eyes will only be improving from here on out! From now on, you won’t see these gorgeous baby blues hidden behind glasses, or uncomfortable with contacts. All I can say is – Better him than me! He is looking forward to seeing things clearly. I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter weekend!
Another little guy of mine has some pretty cute little eyes too!
