We travelled to Harrisburg together to ARMESTO EYE ASSOCIATES where the highly recommended Dr. David M. Armesto, M.D., F.A.C.S. did LASIK surgery on both of Caleb's eyes. (Any person who has that many letters before and after his name must know how to do something well, I was hoping and praying.) Here is Caleb entering the hospital before the procedure:

The surgery went smoothly, although Caleb said he wasn't prepared for the
He spent the rest of the day mostly laying down with his eyes covered, with the taped-on plastic eye shields and sunglasses. His eyes are very sensitive to the light right now.
At about 3-4 hours post-surgery, the pain vanished, and he took a few looks around and started to become amazed that he could see things, and see them fairly well, with NO GLASSES and NO CONTACT LENSES! Although his vision will still have some clearing up to do over the next week, he was actually seeing well enough to drive himself back to Harrisburg this morning for a follow-up appointment. So all is well, so far, and he has crossed LASIK off of his List Of Things To Do To Get Ready To Fly Apache Helicopters In The Military.
For the next 3 to 4 weeks he will use plenty of various eye drops till both eyes are completely healed.

Now. Back to the top picture above, and I'm gonna go on a tangent here. Does it not take A Real Man to carry a Vera Bradley bag? I want to state here for the record that two of my sons-in-law have regularly been seen carrying my daughters' bags for them.

|Lance (Sarah's husband) - Another Real Man|
What's missing? The husband/lover/best friend is still in training, and so is the other son-in-law Eric. Still hopin' for the best with that.
So Bon Voyage! Now I'm off onto my weekend adventures. I'll post again Sunday.
May you all have the vision and wisdom to carry your appropriate loads.
