20/15

I had a little surgical procedure called LASIK yesterday. It was quite amazing. I had it done at Hoopes Vision Center in Utah.

A pretty sweet setup. I went in, they gave me some drops, a Valium, more drops, a hot fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie, cut my eye, put me in a full-body massage chair, folded back the lens, shot a few bolts of laser into each eye, a few more drops and then sent me home with a mug of candy and better vision. I slept most of the day, and then this morning for my check-up I was reading the 20/15 line with even more expected improvement this week.

Amazing.

Craziness! But so exciting. I've always wanted to do that. I just saw the McKinnon's link on the side of your blog - and clicked on it b/c Jan & Paul McKinnon used to be in our ward in Austin before they moved to NYC. It looks like it is their son's blog... such a small world. Martin told us he met up w/y'all for lunch while you were in Utah. How fun! Hope your move to Malaysia goes smoothly.
