Prayer Request

Tomorrow morning I go in for Lasik eye surgery, and would very much appreciate your prayers as I go! It has been a long time since I have been able to see. (in fact I'm not sure I ever remember a time) I have worn glasses since I was 8, and even before that I probably needed them. I was the kid that always sat in the front row at school, not because I was the teachers pet, but because it was the only way I could see the black board. In middle school I didn't want to be the "nerd" so I didn't wear my glasses, I would hide them.... Eventually I got contacts. In the last couple of years my eyes have started to basically reject my contacts, I've had eye irritation, infections, abrasions, etc. Needless to say the eye doctor said I was a great candidate for the surgery, and that it maybe the only way to really have a good quality of life where it comes to my eyes. So, here I go...... I am nervous and excited all rolled into one. I can't even begin to wrap by brain around waking up and looking around and seeing. It's almost emotional to think about. It will be a miracle, that is certain. As of January when the Doctor told me I needed to think of the surgery, we were unsure how to make it happen right now financially. God had a bigger plan because that week we were in the process of refinancing our home due to some remodeling work we were doing. Our home happened to appraise higher than anticipated, so we were able to take some extra out to pay for this surgery. So it is with faith that God has paved the way so far for this to happen. And it is with faith that God will be watching over me tomorrow as I go, but knowing that I have your prayers also, will give me comfort! I will let you know how it goes.
