On the morning of July 26, Sam & I finally had the chance to give each other our 10 year anniversary gift - LASIK surgery at the American Eye Center in Manila. I have been requesting this surgery since I was in high school! My opthamologist suggested I wait until my vision stopped changing for atleast 3 years. That didn't happen until recently. And, thankfully, since we are overseas, we are able to get quality healthcare for about half the cost! Our LASIK surgery literally cost less than half of what we had priced back in Dallas. So, with that in mind, Sam decided we could both afford to have to surgery done. We made a little weekend date out of it, while our fabulous helper, Rosalie, stayed with the kids for a few days. We also owe a huge thanks to our great friends, the Davises, Tamra Gulley & MP Powers, for arranging playdates with our kiddos during the day. I don't think Sydney, Samuel or Nicholas even realized we were gone!
The last time we'll need these things!
