After UltraLasik

matt_after_ultralasikThe day after my surgery I had a follow up visit and my eyes measured 25/20 in my left eye and 15/20 in my right. The Doctor said that my right eye was over corrected, but may clear up in a couple of weeks. If not I may need to have a touch up.

During the last week I was struggling with dry, and at times fuzzy vision and was using drops every few hours. Today I was able to go entire day without needing drops. Both of my eyes are seeing excellent. I’m going to guess that tomorrow’s follow up visit is going to show that both eyes are now 25/20. That’s great because I’m not even sure I was able to see 20/20 when I had my glasses.

It’s been one week after having UltraLasik surgery. I am seeing with more clarity than I can ever remember.

636,580 Tail Wags Paid in Full

Tibby who was “My favoritest puppy dog in the whole wide world” called it quits today.  My little chunky chihuahua was a sweet quiet dog that wagged his tail more times than he barked.  One of his many nicknames was whirly because of his never ending tail wags. He was always ready to perform his ear cleaning duties on his big brother Jake.


He suffered from congestive heart failure a disease in which the heart fails to supply enough oxygen to the body. He was suffering from shortness of breath which worsened over the last few weeks, until he just ran out of air. The last two days he became very weak and was barely able to stand. I’m happy that I had the day off this day after Christmas as I was able to hold him as we said our good-byes.

We had a quick backyard burial. He was eleven years old. I am relieved that his suffering is over, but very saddened to see him go.

Tibby we love you and you will be greatly missed.
