    We just returned home from Charleston, SC (thank you, Chuck, for the stellar recommendation!), where Jayden had cataract surgery on her right eye. The surgery was a success. She's still a little uncomfortable, but she's doing well and not in any pain from it.

    Today was the first day without the patch. We were having lunch, and she looked around and said, "Wow. Colors are so bright! Are they really this bright?" I was so happy, and so sad - I had no idea what she'd been missing :).
    I don't think she did either!

    So glad everything went well! I remember crying when I came out my Lasik (I know it's not anywhere near the same thing but.....) surgery because I could see all of the individual leaves on the trees and blades of grass. That's amazing that she is seeing vibrant colors now!
