Well, I survived. The surgery wasn't as painless as for the right eye. They stuck an IV in my hand and it hurt like crazy. And then it kept hurting so John asked if it was supposed to be hurting. Nope, apparently an IV shouldn't hurt. So if you ever have an IV that is hurting, complain. So the IV in my hand was removed and put elsewhere, where it didn't hurt. But my hand kept hurting, I think the nurse hit a really bad spot. The anesthetist gave me more sedative than last time resulting in me sleeping most of yesterday. He didn't do the freezing as well as the really nice anesthetist from before. Somehow he made my teeth freeze and missed a portion of muscle at the top of my eye. So during the lazering, there was some pain. It wasn't excrutiating but I think me saying "Ow" annoyed the doctor. She kept saying "You'll feel some pressure". It wasn't pressure, it was pain. I can tell the difference. Anyway, it all went okay. The freezing came out faster, which also meant the muscle pain started sooner. Thank God for advil and tylenol.
