Not just cathedral window blocks and tutorials....
but me, actually.
Pretty much a total surprise decision - I'm scheduled for Lasik Thursday morning. I've said for years that I was too creeped out by it to do it. I went to a consultation on Thursday, just considering it, and left having picked THE DAY for the 13th. These cathedral window instructions are going to have to wait a bit.
I can think about it without feeling like I'm going to throw up or faint, so I guess I'll go through with the procedure. So many people I know have already done it - recently and 10+ years ago, all very happy. I'm still pretty freaked out, but ready.
To get ready, I've cleaned most of the house. You're not supposed to be in dusty environments for a week or so for the cut to get a good start on healing. Thought cleaning would be better than booking a hotel for a week. Besides, if I go blind or die, and people have to come to my house to help, they can't see it dirty, right?! I'm thinking quilting is going to be in the category of 'dusty'. With all the trimming and stitching, there's always fuzz around my machine area, so I'll try to avoid my projects for 7 days, if I can.
I'm also making a spreadsheet to keep track of the million eye drops. I'll have four different solutions, with something going into my eyes every half hour while awake for a full week, then every hour for a month. Spreadsheets are a good stress reducer.
The need for order is obviously genetic. The pin fairy (Becket) visited my area, arranging my owl just-so. He amazingly found a way to make it all very symmetric!
See you all next week. Hopefully! (yep,a bit nervous)
