    yeah it hurts some, but not too bad.

    Already can see enough to get by in my apartment, pretty cool.

    Thanks, I hope the recovery goes well too :p


    In one week should be OK, will go to work Monday but need the antibiotics and stuff, taking care of eyes etc for one full week.

    Fingers crossed- I heard that oddly enough laser works better if your eyes are pretty bad.

    My friend's eyesight was bad enough to need glasses/contacts, but the minimum they would consider for laser. And after two operations, her eyes remained the same.

    Most of the pain gone today, left eye not at all as swollen as yesterday, can see fairly OK already

    Dry eyes though, need eye drops, and impossible to sleep with those damn plastic eyes protectors I had to tape over my eyes :lol:


    But looks like this will end up rather cool indeed!

    I wonder that you can sit in front of the monitor already. That's really cool, but don't you have to relax your eyes for some days actually? Just a question. But OK, guess the doctors know better than me.

    They said to try and keep the eyes shut for the first three hours after surgery, other than that a bunch of rules of not getting water (or anything really, other than eye drops) in the eyes for a week, and wearing shades when sunny for the first week.

    Biked without glasses today!
    First time in 25 years...
    Went to the beer store, hehe

    Eyes far from perfect, but absolutely well enough to go into traffic

    It's a long long time since I saw Thyrfing live, but recently bought one of their albums and find myself looking back all them years and wanting to see them again

    anyone seen them at all lately?

    And just realized they'll be playing live once this year!

    http://www.eindhovenmetalmeeting.nl/

    Not sure there is even the slimmest possibility of me taking yet ANOTHER day off from work to go to a festival 2012, since I've done/am doing in total 10 or 11 or something, not counting my beer trips and regular shows...

    That fest has a pretty cool line-up though.

    First check up of eyes states all is fine.

    If I keep to the cleanliness until Friday and then just let it heal within a few months when the sweeling settles and bain + eyes gets used to it, should have great vision.

    whohoo

    Yes, the fabolous change of lasereye gnoffi - drinking without spilling. Even without glasses. ;) I'm not sure if you still manage to taste 50 beers or so now!:D

    Yeah, in two weeks my old piano will be here. But the poor men....! As even the guy from ground floor said: "You just can hope that they've got arms like horse butts." ....:( But well, they're professionals.

    So Deals Death, pretty boy singer and all

    and one of the first gigs I went to with this pop band called Lili & Susie

    You have singer from Deals Death, you got one of the singers from the sisters (Susie), for whatever reason doing a song together
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3pvRYavlDc&feature=youtu.be

    She sings good still, I probably watched her 1987 or 1988, loooong time ago

    anyhow, off-topic, hehe

    I'm like a shark, if he stops swimming he drowns.
    If I stop doing cool shit I become a normal person.
