Recovery going well!

Hello blogger friends!

My vein surgery on my left leg went well yesterday afternoon. Had somewhat of a rough night of elevating my leg and trying to walk 10-15min every couple of hours (as suggested) Not much sleep and I went too long without taking meds so I had a little pain....not intolerable.

The liquid Lortab gets me queasy so my Doctor gave me some Zofran. It works really well!

Rented a few movies and am gonna take advantage of the down time. That sounds silly coming from a semi-unemployed person but I stay pretty busy for a slacker!

I am adding some pictures of my very ugly varicose veins (before pics) I am wrapped up now for 72hrs then two weeks in compression hose before I will know the results.

for your viewing pleasure (those with weak stomachs may want to skip the pics, Gross!)







All wrapped up for a couple more days.


I bought a dress, in a size large... on clearance for $5.98 Bad pic, but I eyed it for a couple months so when it came on clearance I grabbed it!


Spent the morning before my procedure cleaning my horses stall real well, This is Georgia my 23 y/o Qtr. Horse

  1. Eeks on the leg. Sorry! I hope the surgery is a fix!

    Beautiful dress. Especially on you!

    And gorgeous horse. I'm so jealous!

    I saw your comment on my blog and wanted to let you know - that's the exact same reason why I put on my weight, too. So, for starters, no need to apologize, I completely understand! I am like you, if I hadn't worked through that I would probably have been in for a world of hurt. I did a majority of my therapy a few years ago, but the last little bit I was hanging onto was let go back in January. And in a lot of ways, it's a new me. Now I just gotta get my body to catch up - but it's coming!

  2. After pics! I can't wait to see the post surgical pictures.

    Your dress is amazing. You look so thin... I find it hard to believe you aren't in onderland yet. How tall are you again?

  9. Wow! Good for you for having them fixed up. I don't think I have ever seen VV so large and I used to work on a hospital ward that did them all the time. You will feel such relief.

    Love the dress and take the rest, movies and pain killers.

  10. Ouchy! Hope the healing goes well! My mom had her veins 'stripped' when she was only 18 and still wears support hose. That's one gene I've dodged (one of my sister's suffers with them), but I got the cellulite one LOL. LOVE the dress...rest up and feel better soon!
