My Eye Surgery in SLC!

Stopping in Fillmore for Lunch and there is Lavell Edwards! Of course we had to take a pic.
After the surgery! :(
Getting ready to go in! Pretty creepy!


Waiting for them to call us back! Got to love my thick glasses hahaha
I was not looking forward to this surgery at all. I'm so grateful for the power of priesthood blessings that kept me calm the whole time. THey put me to sleep for 5 minutes so they could do a localized anesthesia. I woke up in the middle of surgery which is what they said that I would do. I had tons of plastic around my face and an oxygen mask and I was just about to freak out but had to calm myself back down. The surgery was one hour and five minutes. I stayed calm the whole time. The doctor said that I did it all on my own he barely gave me anything. Which I was glad because the more they gave me then the more the baby got too. We were considered VIP's at the hospital because this was the first surgery they had done on an eye of a woman who was pregnant. After the surgery we went to another hospital to check the heartbeat of the baby and it was strong and healthy. I am just so grateful that everything was a success and that the baby is ok. We will find out more next week when we have our ultrasound! Now I just have to take 3 different eye drops 3 times a day for the next month. One of the eyedrops was $62 after insurance! Got to love it hahahah Thanks for all of the prayers in our behalf! We love you!

Should I say, “Go Brigham, Go!”? LOL! Your surgery didn’t take that long. Others have gone through the same procedure, but lasted more than two hours. I think your baby helped you get past the surgery like a pro. ^__^ Has your vision gotten better till now? Oh, and how’s your baby, by the way?
