This is a very sad post. Lori learned that she is NOT a candidate for Lasik surgery. She and mom and I are soooo sad and depressed about this. We had been waiting for 3 months and were all hyped up and excited about this. When Lori called she cried and it was all mom could do to keep from it. After she hung up she did cry and I have whined and whimpered because we feel so bad.
Now we have to look for a silver lining instead of the dark cloud itself.
The good news is that they were so professional at the clinic. They would not do the surgery and risk her sight. She can still have excellent vision with lenses.
It is better to have tried and failed, than never to have tried at all.
Okay, I feel a little better, but I still want to whimper and whine for Lori.
I did get some very interesting news from my wimmen (Ruby & Penny) who live in Canada. They wanted to set the recornd straight. Lasik is NOT free for Canadians. Mom and I were really surprised to find this out. I wanted to tell you this because right now there are so many rumors floating around this country about health care. My girls did not say why it isn't covered under their health care system, butt mom and I both feel it should be. It would save money in the long run. Maybe they will explain it more today.
I wanted to be sure to make this correction for you. I don't like to spread false rumors. You can read what Ruby and Penny had to say yesterday. I thank them for giving me the facts.
I also wanted to say again how very professional and caring the people at the Lasik Center of Canada were. Lori said that they seemed to feel as badly as she did. They were looking out for her best interests.
My very much good friend TWIX had some super information about Lasik yesterday. ( you can go back and see what Twix said) My mom is one of the really lucky people who actually sees better since she had her Lasik (PRK actually).
Twix's mom actually works in a Lasik center here in this country. So what Twix says can be counted on to be correct.
I am still upset about poor Lori. I am going to close today by saying one of my really bad things. Oh CAT FART.
